Quick weaving is an easy way to create a new look or style using hair extensions. Quick weaves can be done a number of different ways and can be made into a number of different styles. Try a quick weave with a bang in front.
Things You'll Need
- Human hair extensions on a track
- Human hair closure piece
- Weave bond glue
- Nylon wig cap
Braid your hair into corn rows to create the flattest surface. Put your nylon wig cap on your head, bringing the front down just a little farther than the hair line. This wig cap will prevent the hair from being damaged by the bond glue.
Use your weft of extension hair to measure the distance across your hair line, about the length from the edge of one eyebrow to the edge of the other. Cut the extension hair weft. This is going to be used as your bangs.
Take your hair extension from Step 2 and apply weave bond glue to the threaded track. In the place you measured to cut the track, place the track down, pressing firmly to bond glue to the wig cap. Use your blow dryer on the cool setting and blow air over the glued track to help set and dry the glue.
Apply one to two more hair track extensions to the frontal bang area. Be sure to place the hair extensions close together leaving no more than 1 inch of space between them. Clip finished bang area out of the way.
Measure, cut and apply the rest of the hair extension tracks starting at the nape of the head. Glue hair extensions horizontally from one edge of the cap to the other. Start at the bottom of the head and work your way up, creating a U shape with the hair extensions as you near the top of the head.
Note the circular space at the top of the head between your bang hair extension tracks and the rest of the hair extension tracks. Leave this space open, because this is where your closure piece is going to go.
Apply the weave bond glue to the lace tracking of your closure piece of hair. Then press the closure down into the space left open at the top of your head. Allow time for the glue to dry. Your closure piece will split in the middle and fall to both sides of your head, covering all other hair extension tracks.
Cut your bangs to the desired length and style your quick weave.
Tips & Warnings
- Closure pieces can be purchased at any beauty supply house that sells hair extensions. Make sure the closure piece is suitable for glue or thread.
- Weave bond glue is messy and turns to a rubbery substance, so be careful not to get it on your clothes, furniture or carpet.
