Long, thick hair has always been desirable for women, as it can enhance their beauty and confidence. Hair weaving and hair extensions are two popular methods for addressing issues of thin or brittle hair. In the past, women would attach long hair extensions to their heads, but modern techniques make artificial hair look more natural and blend seamlessly with one’s own hair. While the terms weave and extensions are often used interchangeably, there are differences between the two.
In the context of hair, a weave refers to attaching hair from other sources to a person’s natural hair to conceal baldness or add length and volume. A weave can also be used to cover an entire bald head or help women experiencing hair thinning. Additionally, hair weaves can change hair color without applying hair dye. A weave typically involves gluing or sewing artificial or natural hair from other sources onto the individual’s hair, adding color, length, and volume.
Hair extensions, as the name suggests, involve adding length to a person’s hair. There are various techniques for adding length, which can dramatically change the individual’s appearance. Human or synthetic hair can be applied to the individual’s hair using clips (clip-in or clip-on), bonding, sealing, fusion, netting, tracking, and weaving.
