Having a weave applied is a tedious task. For many weaves it takes about 4 hours from start to complete by the methods of either having it sewn in, glued in or fused in. Some of the brand new techniques are much faster but can still take up to 2 hours from start to complete. For women that do not need hours to spend at the salon, quick weaving is the proper solution.
What’s a quick weave? Quick weaving is the technique of creating a weave that’s not sewn on, glued or adhered directly to the hair. The fastest method for doing a quick weave is to make a stocking cap quick weave wig.
To get started you are going to need just a few items: a shower cap, stocking cap, continuous track hair extensions of your choice (one recommendation is Outre Duby Kiss Weave), anti-fungal hair bond glue reminiscent of Salon 30 sec glue, weave holding spray and a rattail comb.
Next you need to corn row the hair and then place the shower cap over the corn rows. Next apply the stocking cap on top of the shower cap. Take the weave in a single hand and start right on the nape area. Apply your glue to the track, start at the bottom of the stocking cap at the nape and lay the start line of the track just below the left ear. Now press the track firmly as you lay the remainder of the track following the shape of the head. You’ll be able to then spray a bit little bit of holding spray above the realm you just laid the track down at. There is no such thing as a need to cut the track, instead you will continue to wrap the weave around the pinnacle, and ensuring the tracks are laying 1″ aside from one another. Continue wrapping around the pinnacle until you reach your closure at the crown of the head.
Once you reach the crown you will continue to go around and round to enclose the wig only you will be laying the tracks directly upon each other. Once you get to the top of the closure, cut off the end leaving approximately a 3″ tail end. Now roll the tail end towards the closure and place glue on the rolled track edges. Point the track edges downward into the closer after which use the tip of a rat tail comb to press and secure the last section into the enclosure. The comb helps you fit the section right into the closure properly.
