Whether you are a naturalista looking for a break from daily styling or a fashionista seeking ideas and inspiration for your new ‘do, we got you covered! Choosing a look that compliments your unique style is the key to happiness for at least the next 4-6 weeks. Try new colors, cuts, and curls while your natural hair is protected from harsh and repetitive styling. Plus, you’ll enjoy nonstop good hair days. Protecting your hair before the hair weaving process is just as important as the style. So, make sure you are thoroughly shampooing and moisturizing between hairstyles and using conditioner, leave-in conditioner, and scalp oil for healthy natural hair care.

We recommend the highest quality of weave, so that means going for the virgin human hair or remy hair brands that are of Indian, Brazilian, Peruvian, or Malaysian origins. High-quality human hair extensions are easier to manage, last for a very long time, and look 1000% more authentic than a synthetic weave. However, the synthetic weave has its benefits too, and is perfect for a cute and quick look change. Hair weave has always made beauty and versatility of style fun and that’s what makes weave so popular. Taking a break from straight hair, we are in a big mood for bold curls and beautiful coils. Girls with curls have a fun and flirty vibe with a flair for sophistication. Helping you get that bounce for your next hairdo, check out our top curly weave styles for 2022.


Curly Crochet

Crocheting or latch hook weaving is a method that involves braiding your natural hair in a particular pattern and looping pieces of weave around those braids. A similar tool is used to latch the weave onto your braids as the tool used by crochet hobbyists when they make blankets and sweaters. You can have more hair added for a fuller look and there are so many curl patterns to choose from. This protective style is a favorite for naturalists and transitioning naturals because it’s easy and inexpensive to install.
