Well, that may be the easiest decision of your journey.
Now, you get to decide on what type of hair, the type of sew-in technique, and lastly, what type of style you choose to wear.
The good news is there are no wrong decisions and best of all you can always change your mind and do something different next time around.
Let's start with you choices of hair.
The rule of thumb is human hair is going to give you the best experience.
While it may be more expensive than synthetic brands, your weave is going to last a lot longer and give you that fresh look.
So don't cut corners here.
You also need to choose between curly, wavy, and straight.
Keep in mind the ultimate look you want to achieve.
Don't fret, you will have options.
For instance, you can always straighten curly hair or curl straight hair.
Be creative and choose the texture that works for you.
Then there is the choice of color.
Get to know what color of hair extensions matches your natural hair.
Any experienced stylist should be able to help you with ease.
Of course, there are many color options as well.
For instance, some prefer to purchase virgin hair (hasn't been dyed) and let their hairstylist dye the hair.
Others choose to buy processed hair that has been colored to their liking.
With all these decisions, you can see why it makes sense to have a solid plan before you visit your local beauty supply store.
Okay, you've purchased your hair and it's time to have it installed.
Hopefully, you've chosen a true professional that will consult with you and not see you as another customer closer to making rent.
Believe me you'll know the difference but we'll cover that in detail in a future article.
Your basic sew-weave is probably the most popular installation method.
A portion of your natural hair is left out to cover tracks on the top and sides of your hair.
Next in line of popularity, is the full enclosure.
Just as the name suggests, none of your natural hair is left out.
This method is great for short hair, thinning hair, bald spots, or if you want to extend the life of your weave.
Quick weaves are also gaining popularity.
This is an easy process of attaching the weave hair unto a wig cap.
This method is faster and gives you the flexibility of removing the hair like a wig.
Hope you aren't worn out on decisions.
I saved the best for last.
The decision of choosing a style is my favorite.
Are you feeling like long hair, short hair, simple look, fancy look? It's all up to you.
A lot of our clients choose their style around an event.
For example, the vacationer often chooses a wavy or curly easy going look.
While the client who is attending a ball, may choose something more formal and sassy.
Grab a couple hair magazines and enjoy picking your new 'do.
All in all, your hair decisions do not have to be stressful.
In fact, the whole journey should be an enjoyable experience.
