Detailed Technical Guide: Hair Weaving Installation Using Sewn-in and Fixed Rings

This technical document is a carefully crafted educational resource designed to guide you progressively and in detail through all the steps involved in installing natural hair weaves. To do this, we use the method of sewn-in and fixed rings. The main goal of this guide is to provide a structured and accessible approach to mastering this technique. However, this guide does not cover all existing hair weaving techniques. Our primary aim is to assist you in fully mastering the method presented here, while informing you about the existence of other hair weaving techniques.

Step 1: Preparing the Client's Hair

Thorough preparation of the client's hair is a crucial step in successful hair weaving. Ensure that the client's hair is not only clean but also dry. A deep shampoo followed by a complete conditioning will eliminate residues from hair products and natural oils that could interfere with the weaving process.

Hair styling is also an important aspect of preparation. For a smooth weave installation, a complete blow-drying of the client's hair is essential. For a wavy or curly weave, perform a blow-dry only at the root of the hair to ensure a clean and neat installation.

Step 2: Tracing the Ring Line

Equip yourself with your tail comb and carefully trace the part where you plan to install the weave. Using your hook and pliers, start tracing the ring line on your head. Follow these steps:

  • Select a strand of hair about 1.5 cm to 2 cm wide and insert a ring into it using the hook.
  • Use the crimping pliers to close the ring.
  • Repeat this operation along the line, leaving a space of 2 to 3 fingers' width on each edge of the head for a discreet and comfortable installation.

Step 3: Sewing the Weave

It's now time to fix the weave to your hair. This step requires great precision and patience to ensure a natural and resilient hair extension.

  • Start at the end of the row, threading the needle with robust thread.
  • Insert the needle between the scalp and the ring gently.
  • Pass the needle through the weft of the weave then through the ring before making a secure knot and moving on to the next ring.
  • Continue this procedure ensuring each stitch is securely tightened until the weave is firmly attached.

Step 4: Repeat the Steps

Repeat steps 2 and 3 for each row of hair until you have covered the desired area on your head. Remember, mastering this technique comes with practice! Browse through our full range of weaves to find the one that best suits your personal or professional needs.

Step 5: Necessary Tools for Hair Weaving Installation Using Sewn-in and Fixed Rings

A successful weave installation requires the right tools. Here is a list of the essential tools for hair weaving installation using the sewn-in and fixed rings method:

  1. Tail comb: This tool is perfect for precisely separating hair and drawing a clear line for your weave installation.
  2. Hook: You will use the hook to thread the rings onto the strands of hair. Make sure to choose a high-quality hook to facilitate this process.
  3. Rings: The rings are the fixing pieces that will keep the weave in place on your head. Ensure you choose rings that match your hair color for a more discreet installation.
  4. Crimping pliers: This tool is used to close the rings once they are threaded onto the hair strands.
  5. Needle and thread: You will need a needle and robust thread to sew the weave into your hair. Choose a thread color similar to your hair for a more natural look.
  6. Natural hair weave: Of course, you will need the weave itself. Select a weave that matches the texture and color of your hair for the best result.

With all these tools at your disposal, you will be well-prepared to achieve a successful weave installation.
