Full Sew In Tutorial
Here is a Transcript of the video so it is also easier to follow, enjoy :)
Hello viewers thank you for watching my video what I'll be doing here is a
traditional sewing using four bundles as you can see my client has short hair and
we're going to try to get this flawless effect. what you see me doing now it's
all in the scalp with wild world oil. This is a good order to grow your natural hair
and since she cut her hair she wants her hair to grow a little bit
longer I like to use braiding hair because it makes the braids stronger and
it makes the sewing last longer I also leave a little bit of the edges out.
I will be showing you guys how I actually laid my tracks I do use the fold method
of the extensions. What you see me doing here is making sure that the edge of
the wefts are at the edge of the braids and
you will see me go downwards with my needle for better control once I place
the needle. Once I place the hair on the braid I will also go downwards with the
needle so that the extensions can go underneath the braids when it changes.
As you see me you will also see me twisting my wrist. What I'm doing
is I'm making a knot every time I put my needle to the braid so as you'll see me
lock it in I would twist it. what it's doing is I'm twisting needle on my hand
and while I'm twisting it once I unravel it from my wrist it's making a
nice close stitch.
Oh and another thing to remember you guys when you sewing in the hair make
sure that your sewing underneath the web and not through the weft if you so do
the web it could cause shedding of the hair.
okay first bundle is in and this is what it looks like very tight very neat.
Partial Sew In Tutorial
Transcript of the video below :)
Hello ladies this is Brianna and for this look I want to show you how to achieve the
side part sew in. This braid you see here is where the leave out will be
on this side of my head and on the other side. I'm pointing to show you where the
rest of the hair is left out I only have hair left out at the front and at my part and
as you can see this is how your braids should look. Now this is how my braid
looks at the very back because this is going to help you effectively sew down
your hair extensions at the nape of your neck as you can see all of my braids
have been stitched down and I will demonstrate on the last braid how to do it.
Now as a plus I want you to make sure that you thread a bunch of needles and
threads and that's because you're going to continue to use it throughout the
So what we're going to do is we're going to stitch it going around
in this section. and you
guessed it you're also going to use the same technique when you're stitching
down your extensions now when you're stitching through your braid.
so that when you're sewing your last extension it's as close to your leave
out as you can possibly keep it.
So far this is how it should look until you finish stitching all the way around. and as
you can see here this is how it should look. now it's time to stitch
along the side. that's why you have to make sure that in order to make your
extensions lay very flat you have a break that's going around the size of
your head. as well as all the way around the neck. so that way you don't have
much lift near the sides or the back of your head so when you're stitching make
sure that you're not stitching too close but not too far apart. Also you want to
stretch the neck as you put your needle through the net and under your braid.
Now this is how one side looks after I stitched it down and this is how this
side looks that you just saw now. it's time to stitch the very back and I wanted to
make sure to show you how to do this part. because even though it seems like
you're doing the exact same thing in the front it's actually a
little bit different every time you're getting ready to make a stitch. you
always want to stretch your weaving net first and then you want to put the
needle through the net and around the braid so you're still doing the same
stitching technique which are making sure that you're gathering the neck and
stretching it and pulling it together so that way it contours at the back of your
head. if you don't do this stretching technique before you begin stitching
it's going to make it look like your net is lifted in the back and you don't want
that. so continue to pull stretch and then stitch to finish sewing down your
Now that we finished sewing the weaving net and we've trimmed off the rest this
is how beautiful the foundation looks. it is very neat and tight so that our
extensions will be stitched down and after stitching down one
bundle this is how it looks. so because we have a side part you want your
bundles to start the slant in that direction so that there's even
distribution. this is how flat it looks because we have that braid going
around the back of our head and I'm just going to show you how far apart
and now this is the second bundle that I have stitched down and I'm going
to spin around just to show you how full it looks.
but we're going to add another
bundle on top of this so as you can see here I stopped for a
moment because I'm going to show you how to do the fold-over method.
This method is extremely useful in giving you so
much out of your hair extensions. the reason why I say that is because
this is going to allow you to continue to reuse your hair for as much as you
can. hair extensions typically last at least two years so
with great care it's going to last a lot longer of course and if you don't cut
the hair extensions it's going to give you longevity when you want to reuse
them again. when doing the fold-over method you just fold it into the
opposite direction just as you see here and you continue stitching with the same
stitching technique that you've learned
throughout the entire process.
We are all sewn down ladies. In my head I have installed three bundles in
one quarter bundle of 22 Inches. If your hair is darker than
mine then feel free to color your bundles now we're going to go ahead and
straighten out our hair. This way we can
have that seamless flip and always use the heat protectant to protect the
health of your hair to prevent thinning. also to prevent heat damage so with just a
little bit you're going to put it on your hair and you're also going to
comb through your section of hair. I like to
then go ahead behind that light to come with a small tooth comb so I can further
detangle my hair because I have thick but fine hair. What works best for me is
pulling on my ends as I straighten it instead of doing the comb chase.
Now check this out with just one pass of the Flatiron you can see how seamlessly
my hair blends with the hair extensions. We're done straightening out our leave
out is time to further define the side part right
before we begin adding styling products. also I suggest that you use a smaller
tooth comb to further comb out your hair so that it's very flat and smooth before
you add any products to your hair.
Ladies look at how seamless this blend looks. your eyes are not deceiving you
trusting this hair blends so well
with african-american hair now it's time for some edge control because it's time
to really make the side part come to life. so what you want to do is grab a
little bit of your edge control and I like to put it on the back of my fingers
so I can direct it exactly where I want it to be and what I want you to do is
lightly apply it to the edges of your hairline. first now you're going to use
your comb to further blend and to move the products into your hair you can get
as creative as you want to do at this part you can add some swirls or swoops
you know something like some ocean waves that I got going on here you can do
whatever you want to bring such a creative look to your hair when wearing
your side part sew in
We're going to start doing the other side and one thing that I want to
mention is that using a small tooth comb is completely optional. a lot of you
ladies like to use a toothbrush and I occasionally like to use a toothbrush as
well just for doing my edges. but you can use a brush actual
boar bristle brush or a tooth brush if you prefer and sometimes I like to use a
comb or a brush it just depends. but for this look I really like the way the comb
is making my edges Now one extra tip that really ties in the look and
makes it look very very sleek it's actually putting edge control on your
part. this is going to make the front of your hairline match the way that your
part actually looks and you want to make sure that you fully smooth this product
into your hair so use the back of the comb your hands and the teeth of the
comb to smooth it in.
You can see the hair is so gorgeous and the edge control really tied
in the look. I'm just going to show you how to put some
curls in your hair and you can use any styling tool you
like I happen to be using a tapered curling wand now when wrapping your hair
around. Make sure you do it very flatly for these curls. now hold it with
a duckbill clip just sew it close and then when you're done you remove the clips
and you're going to gently finger detangle your curls. now you want
to grab a large section of your curls and you're going to start kind of
rubbing them together and smoothing them out so that it can form one big coil
and you're going to do this on multiple
sections throughout your entire head to spray with hairspray.
So as you can see ladies it was so effortless achieving that girl-next-door
beautiful hairstyle. So if you enjoyed this tutorial make
