How long is your hair? you can get clip in hair extensions that arent so expensive as sew-ins and you can experiement with those

I say bite the bullet —  it’s too high stakes to mess up the measurements for your wedding… besides, what if you decide to change your mind on the hair… it gives you more flxibility to have the 20 in if you’ve never put this exact weave in before.

The style that I’m going to do for my wedding is similar. My hair is pretty long and I ended up buying one pack of cheap beauty supply hair to do the hair trail. What I had to realize that we you do these half up, half down hair styles is that you need to leave your hair on top out. That way the crown portion doesn’t show your tracks. I ended up with 3 tracks installed of 16″ hair. It only gave me about 1″ longer than my own hair.

With that said a usually full head weave takes about 8oz of hair. You may not need 6oz of hair if you are going to leave the crown portion of your hair out. Also it usually better to do a 20″, 18 or 16″, & 14″. That way you don’t end up with the top really short with the 10″ on top. Or like me with only an inch below your natural hair. You just have to hope your stylest can cut a weave and make it look believable when you don’t have such a difference in track length.

Wow. I know nothing about this. I never did weave before, but I think I need it for my wedding. My Fiance is like, no way can I have a wig or weave, but my hair falls even when people are whispering in a room. I do not know why, but it just does. And I know I’ll sweat it out, so I don’t even want a little bit of my hair out. Unless I friggn saturate it in setting lotion, gel, or something, it just falls.

For my wedding I had a lace closure piece so I did not have to leave any hair out. I chose a hairstyle that would help me pull it off though.

I bought 4oz of 16″ hair and 6 oz of 20″ hair I had some hair left over. Inbox me if you want to know where I got it from. I dont want to publicize any companies, I  know the moderators dont like that too much lol!

Here’s a pic of what I wanted (at the top) and how it turned out, I’m still waiting on better pictures, lol (bottom)

Oh and 2 oz bundles are REALLY small and make it way more expensive. Try to find somewhere with 4oz bundles. Also Brazillian type hair is thicker and blends really well with our hair. My cousin is natural and leaves her natural hair out with her weaves and when she flat irons and uses her products it looks flawless
