21 Hottest Sew-In Hairstyles for Black Women Right Now

Sew-in hairstyles

A sew-in hairstyle is a protective hairstyle that is made of hair extensions sewn into the natural hair. The extensions can be sewn directly to the hair or braids or to a net. Three words – style, practicality, and versatility are what you’ll get with this superb hair innovation!

If you desire to try a new hairstyle but don’t have enough length or density, sew-in extensions are guaranteed to add a new definition to your hair upgrade. The process incorporates either natural or synthetic extensions to the hair. These pieces are sewed and not glued, so they won’t fall off.

More benefits of sewing extensions into your natural locks include allowing your own hair to grow naturally and causing less damage to it. Pro hairstylist Brandy Thierry from Missouri loves transforming her clients’ manes into beautifully thick locks that look natural in all angles!

Whether it’s straight or textured strands that you want, anything is achievable when you use sew-in extensions. Keep it secure and clean by washing every once in a while, and for sure it will be lasting for long!

Work up this new season with any of these sassy sew-in hairstyles for black women!

Q&A with style creator, Tiffani Marie
Hair Care Specialist @ Hair by Tiffani in Casselberry, FL


How would you describe this look?

This style is a lace closure sew-in. It is considered a protective hairstyle, meaning that the client’s real hair is shampooed, conditioned, blow-dried, and braided down underneath the weave. None of her real hair is left out, giving her real hair a break from daily exposure and other hazards from brushing, combing, friction from sleeping on pillows, etc.

Any advice for someone considering it?

It is very low maintenance, so there is not much that you would have to do to it besides brushing it with a paddle brush daily. You can curl it and style it how you like. You can exercise and do activities without worrying about messing up your real hair. This hair can be shampooed while installing. I recommend a moisture shampoo and conditioner followed by a leave-in conditioner. That is basically it. This style lasts up to 2 months with proper care and maintenance.
