Looks are important to teenagers, especially when they are on display in front of their friends at school almost daily. When it comes to hair, staying up to date with the latest styles is important. It is easy to achieve these styles with a simple weave. Weaves allow teens to change their hair and wear it longer, shorter, fuller, straight or curly.
Big, Loose Curls
This weave hairstyle is popular and romantic. The hair is worn in large, soft curls that are very smooth. The curls are defined with a hair-styling cream and lightly separated with the fingers. If the weave is made of synthetic hair, however, hair products should not be used. Real hair weaves can be treated like real hair and washed, so styling creams are fine. The hair is parted on the side and combed towards the back, falling down into big spiral curls. According to the "Essence" website, it is important to make sure the roots and the weave mesh seamlessly, as the hair is worn down and it is important the weave not be obvious in order to keep the look smooth.
The Layered Bob
This style is a trendy take on a classic bob cut. A straight hair weave is needed for this style, and the natural hair is straightened to fully blend in. The hair is cut at a sharp angle, shorter in the back and longer in the front. The bangs are side-swept across the front of the face and lightly fringed. Layers are added to the hair for body and definition, and the layers are rather choppy. Bright highlights draw attention to the shape and layers in the style.
Straight and Fringed
This style requires a long straight weave, and the natural hair is straightened for perfect blending. Blunt bangs with slight fringe sit above the brows, and layers are added to hair for style and to blend the weave into the natural hair. According to the Beautiful Hairstyles website, the "fringe of this weave is super flat and slightly jagged." This gives the straight hair a trendy, modern look. The hair is worn down and long, parted in the middle. A shine serum makes the hair super shiny.
