To sew in a partial weave, cornrow the hair, sew dangling ends back into the hair, and sew the extensions into the cornrows. This three-hour procedure requires a styling comb, scissors, a mirror, thread, a needle, tiny rubber bands and a package of hair extensions.Know More
Consider the style you wish to achieve, and use the pick of the styling comb to isolate the sections of hair you do not wish to include in the weave. Clip or pin them out of the way. Cornrow the rest of the hair in small, tight, flat braids running from the forehead to the nape of the neck. Secure the end of each cornrow with a tiny rubber band, then thread a needle and sew the dangling ends back up into the cornrows.
Place a hair extension at the center of the nape of the neck, and sew its track across the cornrows. Place additional extensions on both sides, trimming them if necessary.
Sew the rest of the extensions to the cornrows, placing each extension row about 1 inch from the one below it.
After you install the final extension, unclip the rest of the hair. Comb it, and style it as desired.
