How to Weave a Fringe With Weft

Updated February 21, 2017

A fringe, also known as a bang, adds style to your hair and overall look. Many people will add colourful or signature fringe styles to their natural hair to spice up their look or just to try out a new style. Weave hair comes in tracks. Each track is sewn together on one edge, which is referred to as the weft. Before adding a weft to the hair, make sure that the hair is clean and dry.

Remove the track from the package and comb it out thoroughly. Tracks are often very long, so there is no need to comb out all of it; only comb the amount that you think is needed for the bang.

Find a spot to add the fringe. Avoid gluing the fringe directly on the front hairline. Instead, glue it 1 inch behind the hairline.

Brush the real hair back and out of the way.

Cut the amount of track you need for the bang. To measure the bang, place the weft, or sewn edge of the track, along the front hairline. Identify how much you need and cut the piece.

Squeeze spots of hair glue from the applicator onto the weft edge.

Place the weft edge of the weave 1/2 inch behind the hairline. Make sure that the weave hair is falling over the face. The weft is actually glued to the hair, not the scalp.

Brush some of the real hair located just behind the weft forward to hide the weft edge of the weave.

Comb the real hair and the fringe bang together in front of the face.

Cut to shape the weave and real hair into the bang that you want.
