Weave Couture

Washington, D.C.

Show some sass with this glam silhouette by Caprice King of Caprice House of Weaves in Washington, D.C.

B B1 B2

Blonde and honey hues intermingle in this golden bob. The hair is snipped into a Shag cut at a 45-degree angle and thinned out at the tips. The bangs are rounded out, resembling a bowl cut while softly framing the face. A milk bath is added to the strands to add luster to the newly applied haircolor. An argan oil is worked in before the strands are pressed and smoothed out with a ceramic flat iron.



Angela Christine

Celebrity stylist Angela Christine has made a name for herself working with big stars like Beyonce, Garcelle Beauvais , Mary Mary and many more. This hair guru is a salon owner, educator and appears on the reality TV show “L.A. Hair.”


Celebrity hair pro Angela Christine gives us the rundown on her favorite weave maintenance products that she keeps in her beauty bag.

Via Natural Ultra Care Olive Oil: “I love to use this product for braiding and also when I’m treating the scalp while the weave is in. It’s a great way to moisturize the scalp underneath.”
Tancho Tique Stick: “This wax stick works well for smoothing edges and creating updos.”
Kenra Patinum Texturizing Taffy: “ It’s great for adding definition to textured curly and wavy extensions.”

    How short can i go with a Weave? I ‘d like to try a short (think Halle Berry) style, but i’ve only seen women gluing tracks on themselves.
    I’d like a good sew-in weave.
    I haven’t found hair any shorter than 8 inches. Do i get that and have the stylist cut it?

    • Tiffany says:

      Hey jen,

      Going short can be a big commitment so im glad you are choosing to play with a weave, you mentioned not finding hair shorter than 8 inches but i want to tell you about the 27 piece hair it comed in 3 short lengths and is often used to achieve tapered (clipper cut) looks kinda like NeNe or Famtasia they have both worn short cuts using that hair with added length ( 8inch) at the top for versatility. Its priced reasonably and one pack is enough for the whole head!!! Good luck!

  2. Ashley says:

    Hello, is it better to wash my hair extensions after I buy them before installing them or will it make the hair look raggedy? If so, what is the best shampoo/ conditioner to use?
