Folks seem to have a lot of questions about weave hair extensions and that makes sense, because there's a lot of variety out there in the hair weaving world.
If you're new to hair weave then check out the article on the basics about hair weave. The basics tend to be about synthetic or real (human) hair; attachment by bonding glue, tape, braid or sewing; dying hair weaves (yes, you can bleach and dye synthetic hair weaves) as well as the types of hair weave texture available, so it seemed best to have a Q&A article exclusively for hair weaving extensions.
This isn't so much an FAQ (frequently asked question) section, but a mix of hair weave FAQs and general FAQs that can be applied to hair weave.
Hmm... just in case you're wondering, the Qs &As about DIY wigs made weave hair extensions will be found in the forthcoming DIY Wig Q&A section.

As always the Peruke Caveat applies:
This is a guide only, you can take the answers to any of these questions and use them, or you can leave the information and go whatever makes you feel most comfortable and confident.
As we said before ultimately it's about having hair that you can wear with confidence.
If you have a common or less common or question about braided hair extensions, lace wigs or hairpieces, drop us a line - we don't know everything, but we only improve by learning and it'd be great to hear from you.
