African American women have long since discovered that hair extensions are a great way to add length, experiment with texture or color and to change looks without changing the hair you were born with. Looking for new ways to wear your weave? Check out these fab style suggestions!
Big Booming Waves: Use a large barrel curling iron to put curls all over your head and tease them out with a teasing comb. Use a firm (not sticky) spray to hold the look in place.
Funky Highlights: African American women have been known for taking great liberties with hair color, which can make for lots of fun with styling your weave. Have your stylist (or, D.I.Y if you have the skills) add extensions in sporadic places around your head in different color than the rest of your hair, such as blonde on black, or deep red on dark brown. If you want to be more subtle, select a shade of hair that is only a few colors darker or lighter than the rest.
Bangin’ Bangs: If you would like to try wearing bangs, but aren’t ready to take the big chop with your real hair, consider a weave bang clip on! Many celebs, such as Beyonce and Gabrielle Union, have been seen wearing them and they are a fantastic choice for Black women who want the look of bangs without the commitment.
Wet and Wavy: If you want a weave look that is versatile, consider a wet and wavy do, which can go from straight to curly with the addition of water. Many African American women choose wet and wavy weaves, as they can be used to achieve a more natural look.
