  6. Rubber Bands

Ready? Follow along in the video and lets get started!

Step 1: Cornrow

Start with hair cornrowed, expect for the front hairline and a small section of the top part.

Step 2: Secure Tail Braids

Fold a cornrow up and ends down so that they are sitting in the groove between braids. Put the weave needle through the braid and tack stitch the braid into place. Repeat for the rest of the braid tails.

Step 3: Weave Cap

Place a weave cap over the cornrows. Pull the front hair forward and band it out of the way. Cut out a notch for the top part section.

Step 4: Secure Weave Cap

Put the weaving needle through a cornrow, weave cap, and back through the thread to anchor the weave cap into place. Continue sewing the cap to the braided base until it is secure. Cut off the weave cap tag (if applicable).

Step 5: Begin Adding Wefts

Begin sewing the wefts onto the cap starting as low as possible for maximum coverage. Continue working in rows up the head until you reach the crown.

Step 6: Finish

Use smaller rows on the crown with hair going the direction you need it to for the finished style.
