A Sew-In Weave at Angel Hair Designs is the process of braiding/cornrowing the natural hair to the scalp. Then, with a needle and thread, the weave/extension is sewn to the braids. The scalp is well hydrated during the process to cut down on the itching and dryness that comes with your hair being bound up. The Sew-In method also allows for the hair to be washed regularly.

There are many different reasons why people get weaves and just as many styles/methods to go along with them. Some may want to use the weave as a protective style, braiding up ALL of the natural hair and sewing in a Full Weave, allowing the hair to take a break from all of the heat and damage that comes with styling and chemical use. Others may envision a more natural look, leaving some of their natural hair out, but blending it in with the weave, resulting in a Partial Weave.

Some may want to make their natural hair appear more full or longer in length or both. This style would only require sewing in a few tracks of hair in between their natural hair. Another reason could be that someone is experiencing extreme hair loss due to medication side effects or Traction Alopecia.

Traction Alopecia is the gradual loss of hair due to the excessive tightening and pulling on the hair over an extended period of time. Many people who experience this sometimes don’t feel comfortable wearing a wig and want to have a head full of hair to regain their confidence. To obtain a weave on this type of person would consist of using a specially made hair net to aide in the sewing process.

Here, you can see what we did for a client who was experiencing this kind of hair loss.

We used “braiding hair” to help create an anchor for the weave.

A consultation would be needed to make sure that you are a good candidate for this process. As long as the weave is properly cared for, it can last 2 to 3 months. The installation process takes anywhere from 4 to 7 hours depending on the client’s specific needs. For any weave, please arrive at your appointment with the hair you want installed and your natural hair already washed and blow dried.

Here at Angel Hair Designs our goal is to provide you with a more securely installed weave, so that you can feel more confident knowing that you won’t have any mishaps with your hair, thus focusing more of your time and energy on YOU the total package! So call us to set up your individualized appointment so that you can feel More Secure, More Confident, More YOU!
