35 Stunning Sew In Hairstyles
Sew in hairstyles offer up tons of variety for anyone looking to get drastically longer hair in a day or whose natural hair could use a protective rest. While wigs and other types of extensions offer similar results, sew in hairstyles allow more freedom of movement (ever tried working out in a wig?), and won’t damage your natural hair the way that glue in extensions can. If you opt for a sew-in hairstyle, your stylist will braid your natural hair in a specific pattern, depending on where you want to part your finished style. Once braids are installed, wefts of hair are sewn into them, creating a seamless style that can last for two or more months. If you’re determined to get a brand new head of hair ASAP, these stunning sew in hairstyles will provide you with more than enough inspiration.
