Extensions are a great way to change up your hairstyle; just ask these celebrities! Whether you’re wanting to change your look or give your own hair a rest from daily wear and tear, you have to know how to blend your own hair with the extensions to give a natural, flawless look.

Below are a few natural hair weave techniques that are so good no one will know about your weave, but you!

1. Curly Fro

This midnight colored hairstyle is a more modern version of the  ’70s afro.  This curly do is a great choice for those weave wearers looking for something full, curly and different.

How to Style:

  1. Before applying curly extensions, leave a small section of hair out at the top of your head to blend with weave.
  2. After applying extensions, curl the section of your hair that you left out with a small curling iron.
  3. Separate curls by finger combing using a serum to keep curls blended, smooth and shiny.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

Oval or oblong face shapes are best for this curly style.  All hair types work well for this style.

Tip(s):

When you shampoo and dry your hair or when getting ready for bed, you can keep your own hair curly by setting it on small flexi-rods or perm rods then finger comb to style.

2. Soft Waves

This soft wavy hairstyle is just right for any occasion. Longer layers are cut throughout for just the right movement, body and style and topped off with a sexy middle part to switch things up a little.

How to Style:

  1. Section and clip out hair around middle part that will cover extensions.  Add hair extensions.
  2. Starting from the back, section hair horizontally and take 1 ½” to 2” sections and mist with a thermal protection spray and create your curl with a curling wand by wrapping the hair around the wand and holding for 7 to 10 seconds.
  3. Repeat these steps until you have reached your natural hair.
  4. Remove clips and flat iron your hair to create a smooth blend with extensions.  If your hair is lengthy, wand your hair and blend with weave.
  5. Use a drop or two of shine gloss to finish.

Best Face Shape and Hair Type:

3. Short and Sassy

This fun hairstyle is cute and low maintenance. Adding extensions for an angled look gives versatility to the everyday short style.

How to Style:

  1. Start with clean, molded hair and add extensions to the top by parting diagonal partings and attaching extensions to your hair.
  2. Once hair is as full as you like, comb to one side and use feather razor to blend hair together and shape leaving it longer with a shorter blended feathered bang.
  3. Using your hairspray and flat iron, take thin sections and spray and smooth out. Flat iron the entire head creating a slight bevel to give it shape and blend with extensions.  Finish with shine spray.
