Full Answer

  1. Prepare the hair

    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.

  2. Place the first extension row

    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.

  3. Sew on the rest of the extensions

    Sew the rest of the extensions to the cornrows, placing each extension row about 1 inch from the one below it.

  4. Unclip the remaining hair

    After you install the final extension, unclip the rest of the hair. Comb it, and style it as desired.
