Introduction: Why do you want to curl your hair? And Why is it better than a low bun?

Most women will agree that a low bun is the perfect hairstyle for most occasions. But, did you know that this style can be incredibly hard to maintain? While you can easily take care of your hair in the shower, low buns often need to be finger-combed and washed out with a clarifying shampoo every two weeks! If you have curly, frizzy hair, then this can be a real burden. Weave is a simple, easy alternative to low buns.
In this guide, I will cover:

What You’ll Need for This Mani-Pedi

Water- You will need to wet your hair before you can curl it so water is a must have. Also, if you are experiencing hair loss, then you should wash your hair with shampoo every two weeks because this will help to prevent further hair loss. If you are experiencing hair loss due to dandruff, then this can be treated by applying 1-2 tablespoons of cortisone and shampoo every time you shampoo. If you shampoo more than once a week, then this is not a good idea.
Hair Glue- You will need at least two different hair glues to achieve a tiered look. A glue for the parts of your hair that are not tightly curled and a glue for the tightest parts so that it will also look stylish with your low knot bun. You can look for hair glue at your local beauty supply store or try some of the popular glues on the market. In order to achieve this look, you might want to apply your hair glue to freshly shampooed and clean hair.

How To Get The Look

STEP 2: If you’ve tried to curl your hair before then you will know that it’s important to use a comb to run through the hair from bottom to top. Weaving a bun around your head will ensure that you have enough hair at the ends of your head to comb through properly. You should also take care not to use any heat on your hair for this step as simply brushing or raking through wet, curly locks can damage the hair which would make future steps impossible.
STEP 3: To start to French braid your hair from the bottom up, simply take a thin section of hair from the nape of your neck and split it into three strands. Now take the strand on your left and cross it over in front of the middle strand. Then take the strand on your right and cross it over in front of the new middle strand. Continue to do this until you reach all the way up to just below your hairline.

The Steps Are Simple but Time Consuming

STEP 1: By getting a weave you will be able to create a low, sleek knot on top of your head. This can be specially styled according to your tastes and it will last for weeks (maybe even months) depending on how often you get the hair washed. After all, we all know that curly hair, unless properly maintained, can begin to look a little wild and unkempt. The weave actually helps to provide the hair with more of a structure, giving it some more control. This can be especially useful for those who have experienced relaxed hair. It is also very important to maintain the weave AND use proper products that are specifically formulated for weaves.
STEP 2: Take a bun (a balled up knot) in your hair, especially at the back of your head if you have long strands there. It is easier if you put a few hair pins in there (it makes it easier to hold the bun tighter).
STEP 3: Now take the weave and tie it around your bun. Make sure it is nice and secure.

How Long Will It Take You and What Is Your Success Rate?

It’s important to remember that perfect and sleek hair is a work in progress. The length of your hair will determine how long it takes you, but as far as weaves are concerned, you should expect to wash them at least once every two weeks. If you find that the weave tangles far before this, then it may be time for a new one. It is also important to remember that the hair you use to make your weave must be absolutely clean. If there is dirt or grease on the hair, it may cause you head to itch and/or get really oily. This can be incredibly uncomfortable and quite unpleasant.
Once you have all of your supplies ready, you will want to start by opening up your beautiful weave. This will help to ensure that the hair is nothing but clean, unsullied hair and nothing else from the environment can enter into the hair. As seen in previous photos, this particular weave uses about 40-50g (.75-1lb) of hair for each individual piece. Also, there are 8 pieces in this weave and my personal favorite was the second piece I made.
Once your hair is completely opened up and ready to work, you can be sure to put a little olive oil on the scalp in order to fight any itchiness.
Next, you will want to begin sectioning off your hair into each piece that you need. I chose four strands of hair per piece. I wanted these pieces to be as thick and full as possible since my goal was a full final result.
You’ll also want to make sure that you’re ensuring that each piece of hair fits perfectly into its corresponding section. Make sure that you hold each piece in place so that it is secured securely.
