Weave Couture


B B1

Spice up your spirals! A deep, curly hair weave is first installed. Split the hair into two horizontal sections. Use gel to slick the back section into a ponytail and bring the length forward. The back ponytail comes forward to meet the other section at the crown. Roll into a pompadour style and pin over the ponytail. Loose ends of the ponytail are fluffed. This gorgeous style lasts up to one week if you wrap at night with a satin scarf. To rejuvenate curls in the morning, mist them with leave-in conditioner and water.



There’s a good chance Melissa Forney has styled some of your favorite stars. After all, she serves as the Department Head of Hair for the hit TV series Empire. She’s worked as lead hairstylist for films including Best Man Holiday, Selma and Think Like A Man Too.

Weave Trends
“I like weaves to look natural, and I also like the natural highlights and colors. They look great in shorter styles and bobs.”
