I haven’t worn a weave in a few years. I used to be a big fan of a sew in but, in truth, I just don’t feel like spending a small fortune on hair on a regular basis or even fuss with hair that does not grow out of my own scalp. My hair gives me enough of a hassle which leads me to wearing a low bun on a regular basis. I am not the norm. There are plenty of Brooklyn girls rocking their curly or TWA natural hair one day and then the next day wearing installs that flows way down to their bottoms. That’s it. That is the reason why I have always loved a proper weave. The versatility!
A weave can be good and quick. One of my very favorite “Quick” or “Pronto” weave video tutorials was done by Ming Lee a few years back before she became a hair weave sales goddess. She is currently winning in the weave game. I followed the steps in her video to achieve a weaved style that can be worn up or pulled back without the dreaded “track” showing.
