With all the different innovative weaving techniques being introduced into the hair world, the days of recognizing a hair weave at first glance are long gone.
Now the newest ish’ to hit the streets is the invisible part weaving method, a bonding technique used to create a natural looking part on the scalp for sew-ins or quick weaves.
The invisible part allows you the freedom to give your natural hair a break from normal wear-and-tear, like heat damage and product build up, when left out to blend your weave.
So if your looking for a protective hairstyle or just want a more natural look, follow this easy step-by-step guide on how to create an invisible part with a sew-in method.
Things You Will Need
Comb, Hair bonding glue, Hair weave, Sewing needle, and Hair thread
Starting with dry cleansed hair, make a middle or side part, according to your desired style. Make the part as neat as possible as this is the only part of your hair that will be showing.
Start where you made your part, and braid your hair straight to the back in proportional sized cornrows (probably 8 to 10 cornrows).
Once your entire head is braided, thread the weaving needle and attach the loose ends of your cornrows together using a basic stitch sewing method. When finished there should be no loose hair hanging.
Measure the hair extension horizontally across the length of your head. Cut the extension to fit that area, and starting at the nape of your head, sew in the hair extensions across the rows of braids. Each extension should be approximately 1 inch apart. Continue this process all the way up the head form, until you have no cornrows showing.
At this point only part of your hair that should be showing is the weft from your last hair extension (at the top or the crown) and your neat part.
Cut the remaining hair extensions into approximately thirty 1-inch strips, depending on your head size you made need more or less.
Take one extension strip at a time and lightly cover the weft with hair bonding glue (less is best or else you will create a mess). Wait 10 seconds for the glue to become tacky, then starting 1/2 inch above your hairline firmly lay the extension in a slightly slanted position on top of your natural hair. Continue laying each strip directly above the other one in the same direction on both sides of the part. But, do not cover the part, it should remain visible. Once finished, comb the hair down to cover the wefts.
It may take you a few runs before you create your best invisible part. But the important thing to remember is it should appear that the hair is growing out your scalp, hint the word – invisible.
