What is Sew N Weave? A hair weave is a very general term used to describe human or artificial hair used to alter one's natural hair appearance by adding additional hair to their natural hair or by covering the natural hair all together with human or synthetic hair. The highest quality extension hair is human remy hair.

Remy hair still possesses the hair layer, which is the outermost part of the hair strand; it resembles shingles on a roof. All remy hair has the cuticle layer of the hair flowing in the same direction, flowing the way it would naturally. The cuticle layer is important when concerned with hair tangling, longevity of the use(up to one year), and how well the hair shines. When the cuticle layer is intact and laying flat, the hair is capable of reflecting light, resulting in a shiny, well-groomed apperance.

What are Kinky Twists? Kinky Twists are a fun, two-stranded hairstyle in which the hair is woven into perfect spirals. This look can be created using your natural hair or synthetic extensions, and is known for its easy maintenance. Kinky Twists take about 6-8 hours to complete, and generally last up to three months with proper care.

What are Cornrows? This hairstyle involves sectioning the hair and then forming a braid that is connected to the scalp in each section. Sometimes beads or other types of ornaments are added to make such hairstyles more attractive. With cornrows, however, the sections are usually long. A single braid begins in one place and follows the course of the outlined section as it is connected to the head. A cornrow braid only dangles at the end. For example, if the hair is sectioned in rows from the hairline to the middle of the head, the cornrow will be flat along the way and will only hang loosely after it has passed the outlined midsection.

What are Box Braids? Box Braiding is an ancient art, handed down from generation to generation in Africa. The origins of the art form can be traced back to Egypt as far as 3500 BC. Each region of Africa has its own traditional styles, and each tribe its distinctive aesthetics. In many West African countries, hair braiding developed into complex patterns signal one’s social status, age group, and village affiliation. Certain elaborate hair treatments were reserved for ceremonial occasions—weddings and other rites of passage.

What are Senegalese Twists? Senegalese Twists are an advanced form of cornrows that add a "twist" to the regular cornrow braid. The Senegalese version of the braid use a doubling up technique to create tight cornrows that have some extra coil at the bottom of each twisted strand.
