Weave hairstyles provide a wide variety of beauty options for women with natural locks. Essentially, they are hair extensions that are with either real human hair or synthetic hair for more women who desire volume or length. Whether you opt for sew-in, net weaves, glue-in/ hair bonding or fusion weaves, you can enjoy a multitude of possibilities for a new look.
Get inspired with some of our favorite ideas below.

Rihanna is an infinite source of inspiration for hairstyles. In this shot, you can get inspired by her messy yet classy updo for styling your weave. It works amazingly for women who have long and curly or wavy hair extensions.
