Depending on how long you want your hair to look, choose any of the following types of weaves that are readily available in beauty stores and salons.
Medium Weave

To increase the length of short hair, a medium weave is ideal, with low upkeep. Opt for weaves giving shoulder length hair to tie a ponytail, braid or updo.
Long Weave

Tips To Follow
  • While synthetic or human hair are available in a variety of color and styles, choose natural or synthetic hair depending upon the style you wish to go with. But remember, natural hair gel properly with original hair. 
  • It is recommended that you visit a professional hair weaving expert, who understands your hair type and uses the right technique for weaving.
  • Take care to check that the hair weave is not very heavy or pulling at your scalp, because this can lead to side effects like headaches, or even cause harm to your natural hair. If you don't want to get hair weave glue to your scalp, then try using a hair extension to see how it looks on you.
  • Use of glue to bond hair extension to your natural hair is one of the best techniques used to get hair weaves for black women. This technique helps to hold hair together in different conditions, like when washing and conditioning hair. However, be careful while using blow dryers or irons as they can cause undesirable effects with the glue.
