Weaving: which length to choose

December 10, 2019 1 -

To find the weaving you need, it is important to determine what length you want. Here are some tips to help you choose.

 

Determine your ideal length

our weavings  range from 10 to 28 inches (26 to 71 cm). You therefore have the choice between a large number of lengths, going from the shoulders (10-12 inches) to the lower back (24-28 inches). To determine where each wick will fall exactly, you can use a meter which you will have the tip at the top of your skull. Drop it naturally and note how far you want your hair to come. Perform the same operation from the top of your ear (to know where your hair will fall on the sides) and the base of your skull (to know where your hair will fall at the back). You can also use wicks of different lengths to create a gradient effect: this will be more practical than cutting your weaving.

Tip:  Ask for advice from a hairdressing professional who will be able to advise you according to your body type and your needs.

 

Check the length of the wicks

A wick is measured from the seam to the tip. Note that weaving is measured flat: if you choose a  wavy weaving  or curly it will therefore appear shorter (2 to 5 cm less) than a straight weaving.

Tip:  To obtain the most natural effect possible, choose strands 5 to 10 cm longer than your natural hair (or the same length if you just want to gain volume).
