Hair weaves can add length and volume to any hairstyle. If applied properly, a hair weave will last for several weeks. The most challenging aspect of applying a weave is bonding it to your hair with a special adhesive. As long as you have the right tools and correct instructions, you can achieve the results you desire by properly gluing in a hair weave style.
1. Make a horizontal parting just above your hairline at the back of your neck. This is where you will glue in your first section of hair weave.
2. Put all of your hair above the part in hair clips so you have room to work while applying the weave.
3. Hold the section of hair weave against your scalp so you can measure how much is needed. The weave should come to within 1/2 inch of the edges of the parting. This will allow you to pull the hair into a ponytail without revealing the weave. Cut the weave to size.
4. Lay the section of the hair weave on a work surface to apply the glue. Apply a thin layer of glue along the inside seam of the weave. There is usually an indentation that helps identify the correct side to apply glue.
5. Apply the weave to the hair just below the scalp parting, not directly on the scalp.
6. Press firmly with your thumbs placed in the center of the weave and slide them out towards the ends, still applying pressure, to secure the weave to your hair.
7. Hold a hair dryer on the glued weave for approximately thirty seconds to set the adhesive.
8. Continue the process by parting another section of hair an inch or more above the first weave. Repeat steps 2 through 7 for each section of weave you are bonding to your hair.
