Weaves are great for extending the length of your natural hair. They can also be sewn in to cover your whole head. This is convenient if you don't want to comb you natural hair every day. Another great weave style is a full sew-in weave with a front bang. The bang is part of the full weave as this style requires cutting the front of the full sew-in weave.

  1. 1

    Part a section of your hair on the right side of your head, near your right ear, in a verticle direction. Using a comb, part the hair starting from the back of your head to the front.

  2. 2

    Tie back the rest of your hair with a rubber band to prevent it from covering the section you've just parted.

  3. 3

    Grab a piece of hair near your hairline from the section you've parted.

  4. 4

    Divide the piece of hair into three sections. Braid cornrows by putting the left section under the middle section and then over the right section.

  5. 5

    Continue Step 4 while grabbing hair in this section close to your scalp.

  6. 6

    Repeat steps 1 to 5 on the rest of your head. Continue creating cornrows from where you last left off, moving to the left side of your head near your left ear.

  7. 7

    Cut out a long piece of hair thread, about 28 inches in length, using your scissors. Stick the end of the thread into the eye of the needle and fold the thread in half; tie the ends of the needle into a knot

  8. 8

    Braid the hanging braids from each cornrow into one horizontal cornrow, starting from the left corner to the right corner of the nape of your neck. Follow steps 4 and 5 to cornrow the hanging braids. The cornrow will extend to a single hanging braid.

  9. 9

    Fold the hanging braid over the cornrow which is an extension of that hanging braid.

  10. 10

    Sew it down, starting from the right to left corner of your nape, by sticking the needle through the cornrow and then pulling it out. Continue this step along the cornrow. When you reach the left corner of your nape, sew that spot two to three times to prevent the cornrow from going loose.

  11. 11

    Cut the thread off with your scissors.

  12. 12

    Place your hair weave around your hairline and sew it down over your verticle cornrows. Follow Step 10 to sew the hair weave down but stick the needle through the weft of the weave or the region from which the hair strands hang from, and then through the cornrows.

  13. 13

    Continue to place the hair weaves 1 inch apart from each other from your hairline until you reach the crown of your head. Leave a quarter-sized circular space on the crown of your head. Your closure piece will be on this space.

  14. 14

    Measure a 3-inch hair weave piece. Place some glue on the wefted part of the weave and roll it like a cinnamon roll. The glue shouldn't appear on the outside of the roll. This will be your closure piece.

  15. 15

    Flatten the closure piece with a flat iron.

  16. 16

    Apply hair glue on the bottom of your closure piece and press it on the quarter-sized space at the crown of your head.

  17. 17

    Let the hair glue dry from your closure. The drying time could take 10 to 15 minutes. Comb your hair down from the crown to the tip of your hair. Do this all around your head.

  18. 18

    Cut a straight line from the right end of your eyebrows to the left end of your eyebrows using scissors. You have now created a bang from a full sew-in weave.

Tips and warnings

  • Use a curling iron to curl the ends of your hair weave, including your bang.
  • Apply a light amount of mousse on your crown to smooth down flyaway hairs.
