"How To Make Money Off Of Basic Hair Weaving"

When I lived in California, I knew a friend with a beauty salon. She taught me the art of hair weaving without charging me for the lesson. I had met another lady that wanted to charge me $1,000 for teaching me the craft and my friend told me she wouldn't charge me anything for watching her do a hair weave job. She told me some people used the glue, but she said the glue was messy. In a long run, it breaks out your hair. She told me that braiding and sewing in the weave was a better choice for business.The weave seem to stay in longer and the customers were more happy with the job. I watched as she did three tracks of human hair onto this exotic dancer's. Who wanted length and thickness to her own hair. When she finished, she clip her ends and gave her a style and she was finished for $150.00 in one setting. I said wow, I was shocked at how she made easy money with a quick weave service. There's money to be made with the craft of hair weaving if you know how to do it. I watched carefully as my friend braided and sewed in, the track to the braids of the dancer's hair. It seemed easy enough for me to understand.

She taught me everything about the craft of hair weaving. It's a craft I also used on myself and was proud of the out come. I taught it to my daughters, so they would know how to use the art of hair weaving to add length and thickness to their own hair or others. My eldest daughter got her hair done by my youngest daughter. By looking at the picture of my oldest daughter, my youngest daughter did a beautiful job on her head of hair. You can't even tell it's weaved into her own hair. This hub will teach you how to purchase the right texture of hair, how to chose the color and the length for yourself. So, you can do a good job on your own hair or some else hair and get paid a fee for your services, especially if you do a great job. Instruction on buying supplies and products for hair weaving. Go to your beauty supplier and get all of your supplies. Start with the texture and color of your own hair or who ever you're buying the hair for. Make sure it's human hair. They have many name brands of hair but one in particular is the Yaki human hair weave. Then you must purchase your hair weave thread, making it a shade or two lighter than the hair, so you can see the difference in the thread when taking cutting out the tread.

Also purchase a circular weaving needle, and make sure you have a pair of sharp cutting shears or scissors handy. Use a hair style book for trying out style on you or your customer. We must always start with a clean head of hair. Just before you get started with washing of the hair make sure that your perms and color touch ups are all done before. Then you wash and dry the hair. Once all this is done you start the craft of braiding the hair. Then weaving a partial or full head of hair. These instructions can make money for you. You can use your expertise to keep your hair beautiful, full and stylish. If you don't want to make money for the craft. Always start at the nape of the neck, take the comb and part a kind of thick layer of hair to hide the first micro braid, because you might want to pull your hair up unto a ponytail or something. Then do a thin part and braid this thin layer of hair. After you have finished with the micro braid, thread the needle by leaving one end of the thread single. Knot the long end of the thread and hold the end of the micro braid down on the micro braid. Then sew the micro braid all the way across the micro braid to the end, then knot it and cut it off. Take the human hair weave and measure it to the micro braid and cut if off. Hold the end to the micro braid with the weft exactly on the micro braid. while you keep sewing on this micro braid until you finish the end and Knot it and cut the thread. After you finish this action, take the hair in you hand and kind of pull on it, but not hard enough to hurt the person involved. You are just looking to see if the hair is reinforced. Then part a thin layer of hair and brush into the weave that you just finished and the layer of hair should conceal the braiding you just finished.

Part another thin layer of hair and make another micro braid. Just like you did the other micro braids. To do another reinforced braid and part another thin layer of hair and brush it into the braided hair. You should be able to do about six tracks of hair before you get to the crown of the head. After you finished your six track of weave, you will then have to decide which way you, want your top head weave to go. Whether it's to the side or straight down front.....you will still follow the same alternative actions that you did before. b By alternating after each micro braid, sewing each of the micro braid and sewing the weave to the micro braid until all your weaved tracks are finished. Then we do the same for the crown of the head. We do the weave so we can fix the top of the head with a nice style . Brush the weave you just finished on top of the head to the direction it's suppose to go and all the weaved tracks should be cover with hair. Make sure the weave wefts or braid, don't show at all. There might be a little knots that you feel but nothing major that the weave and style want hide. when you have finished with the total head, clip the ends unless they don't want them clipped. Have your hot flat iron or hot curlers plug in so you can go right to work, on styling and shaping the hair weave. So, it can look like a professional done job, and no one will know the difference only you and your customer.

How interesting! I'm growing my hair out at the moment and trying all kinds of experiments with it like braiding and tucking and whatnot! I think I look like an imbicile most of the time because it's hard to do on yourself so maybe I should practice on other people! Great information.....

You know I read that no matter how bad the economy is - people want to get their hair done. This always seems to be true. What a talent this is. Good for you and how lucky to have such a generous friend. Very wise of you to take advantage of such a good opportunity.

Great hub! Thank you!

I used to wear weaves, and I think it's a great buisness to go into. I loved when sewing weave in braided hair was introduced over the glue. The glue is so sticky and messy, and was hard to get out at times. Many times my hair came out along with the glue. This hub just might inspire me to get another weave put in. Yes, your youngest daughter did an excellent job on her sister's head.
