How to Style a 10-Inch Weave

by Alisa Herrscher

A weave is a hair piece that can used to make hair full and change up your look. It is a temporary fix while you wait for a short hairstyle to grow out. A 10-inch weave allows you to curl and style your hair and still create a long hairstyle. A weave, unlike clip-in extensions, are braided or sewn in, and are real hair, so you may apply heat such as a blow dryer or curling iron.

Items you will need

  • Wide-tooth comb
  • Styling products
  • Blow dryer
  • 1 1/2-inch curling iron
Step 1

Comb out all knots and tangles with a wide-tooth comb. Detangle the hair from the bottom, then work your way up to the scalp.

Step 2

Work in your preferred styling products.

Step 3

Let the hair dry naturally. If you need it to dry immediately, use a blow dryer cautiously. Avoid direct heat on the roots or where the weave is bonded with your real hair. Dry small sections of hair at a time on a low setting.

Step 4

Use a curling iron to blend the weave with your real hair. Use a 1- to 1 ½-inch barreled iron for best results with this longer weave. Avoid curling the hair every day, to avoid dull hair and cutting the weave’s longevity.

Step 5

Let the curls cool and comb through.

Step 6

Experiment with accessories such as headbands or barrettes.
