As a stylist, you’ll need to know how to style your clients’ hair in a variety of ways. Hair extensions and weaves are extremely popular, and there’s a good chance your clients will want these services at some point. That’s why you should know how to install weaves and hair extensions according to the preferences of your clients.
It is also important to educate your clients to properly care for these styles to keep them looking their best as long as possible. Here are a few important things to keep in mind with regard to hair extensions and weaves.
A weave is a method of installing hair extensions that involve sewing the pieces of extensions or wefts into the hair. In most cases, the client’s hair is braided into cornrows or tracks. The extensions used for a weave are gathered at the top and fastened together to create a hairpiece. You’ll take the sealed portion of the extension and weave a needle and thread into the area where the hair seals together. Then, you sew the extensions onto the tracks to secure them in the client’s hair.
