Hair weaves can add length and volume to any hairstyle. If applied properly, a hair weave will last for several weeks. The most challenging aspect of applying a weave is bonding it to your hair with a special adhesive. As long as you have the right tools and correct instructions, you can achieve the results you desire by properly gluing in a hair weave style.
- Make a horizontal parting just above your hairline at the back of your neck. This is where you will glue in your first section of hair weave.
- Put all of your hair above the part in hair clips so you have room to work while applying the weave.
- Hold the section of hair weave against your scalp so you can measure how much is needed. The weave should come to within 1/2 inch of the edges of the parting. This will allow you to pull the hair into a ponytail without revealing the weave. Cut the weave to size.
- Lay the section of the hair weave on a work surface to apply the glue. Apply a thin layer of glue along the inside seam of the weave. There is usually an indentation that helps identify the correct side to apply glue.
- Apply the weave to the hair just below the scalp parting, not directly on the scalp.
- Press firmly with your thumbs placed in the center of the weave and slide them out towards the ends, still applying pressure, to secure the weave to your hair.
- Hold a hair dryer on the glued weave for approximately thirty seconds to set the adhesive.
- Continue the process by parting another section of hair an inch or more above the first weave. Repeat steps 2 through 7 for each section of weave you are bonding to your hair.
