Weave Couture

Washington, D.C.

Crown yourself with gorgeous blonde-highlighted fringe in this simplistic, yet edgy, style by Caprice King of Caprice House of Weaves in Washington, D.C.

Nothing says summer like a head-turning hairstyle. Hair is first braided down and a human hair full weave is sewn in. Next, strands are razor cut and texturized, creating a bob silhouette that is detailed with a clip-in side fringe highlighted with look-at-me platinum. Using a flat iron, the coif is lightly bumped to call attention to the subtle layering. An edge tamer is applied to lay the hair down.




In addition to working with A-List beauties including Gabrielle Union and Zoe Saldana, Ted Gibson also has his own line of products and owns salons in New York, Washington, DC and Fort Lauderdale, FL. Ted has also creating stunning coif creations that have graced the pages of magazines and appeared on TLC’s What Not To Wear.


Ted Gibson shares how his advice for aspiring hairstylists.

“It’s about being really clear about what it is that you want to achieve and never letting people tell you no. Don’t forget where you come from. Always treat people with the utmost respect and kindness. They always say ‘Nice guys finish last’ but I disagree. I think it takes nice guys a little bit longer, but we have longevity whereas the people who are mean and bitter don’t necessarily have longevity.”
