How to weave

weaving style is one of the popular hairdressing styles and it is very common. Although there are very different kinds of weaving styles, one thing is common to all and this makes them termed as weaving style. The positioning of the hand (like weaving any material)when plaiting the hair and the simplicity makes this style unique and peoples’ favourite. It is not the case that other styles are not simple to make but most times people prefer one kind of weaving or the other because of the time it saves them and for the fact that most weaving style are very simple to make, makes many people prefer it and they can even make it by themselves without waiting for someone to make the hair for them.

It is interesting to note that weaving style is firmly held to the head and this even makes it bring out the shape of the head.


Unlike weaving style that has to do with parting the hair into few parts and making it fast, braids have to do with dividing the hair into very small parts and making it one after the other. One of the reasons why this usually takes time is because there are many parts to make one after the other. 

To start braiding the parts, you start by first making the foundation or background in order to make the hair firm on the head.


This is just like the other braid style with just little difference. What makes Zip-Braid different is that it usually like zip and that is why it is called Zip-Braid and to form the zip shape, one really has to hold the hair together tightly so that it does not lose structure, but it also follows the same steps like the other braids.


For Didi style, similar to weaving in the sense that the hair is firmly held to the skull, the major difference is that Didi style is plaited “head front”, that is the hairdresser stays in front of her customer unlike weaving(the hairdresser stays at the back)


For twisting style, making the foundation is also applicable, but it is different from weaving and braiding because of the way you position the hand. You twist the hair and make sure that it is tightly twisted so that it does not loose because twisting style can be easily loose if proper care is not taking in handling the hair.

Adding Attachment

Broadly speaking, Attachments can be any other thing added to the hair to beautify the head

but narrowly speaking, Attachments are beautiful looking artificially made hair added to natural hair to make one look good and to beautify the head.

Attachment is added to the hair for different reasons.  

  1. to beautify the hair
  2. to make the hairstyle more durable (last longer)
  3. In order to make those styles that requires much hair
  4. When the person involved does not have enough hair to make that particular style. 

Attachment can be added to braids, weaving styles, twisting styles and even Didi.

When fixing, you also add to your natural hair, but this time around, the artificially made hair has been processed and packaged and all you need to do is fix it on the head or just make few adjustments and make different styles to suit your taste.

There are different kinds of fixing materials, (i). Long (ii).Short and they serve different purposes.

Fixing, in most cases requires a foundation. Just like in building a structure, a foundation must first be laid. So to make the foundation for fixing, you first make one weaving style or the other (depending on the fixing style) on the head, and then begin to fix the materials on it.

Some fixing styles (although not all) ends with the closing part which could be at the top right, top left or even at the centre of the head. This is also another way of making the person look more beautiful.
