Brazilian Deep Wave Sew In Tutorial

In case some of you didn’t know, I am a Freelance MUA but I am also a Hair Stylist and started doing hair when I was 12 years old, way before I knew anything about makeup. I started doing my own extensions because some of my cousins did hair but never had time to do mine so I started doing my own, and it was a wrap from there. In high school I did all of my friends hair from box braids to flat twists and weaves, and I also did the neighborhood guys cornrows with the designs. These days I do my own hair all of the time, never go to a hairdresser. But I do other peoples hair on occasion when I feel like it. I think I will start doing other people’s hair on the regular again now though. Anyway I did my cousin Jade’s sew in this weekend for her birthday and it came out great. Have her looking like Pocahontas.

Jade has been natural for the last 3 years and has been gradually trimming her relaxed ends. This hair was the perfect texture to match her own, with a braid out. She has very thick hair that is pass her shoulders when combed out. Here is the braid pattern that I chose to use with a small u shape and the edges left out.

We used Virgin Brazilian Deep Wave hair. Almost one bundle of 22 inches on the bottom, and a bundle and a half of 20 inches on the top. Here is a closer look at the hair…

Half way done…

Last track sewn in. I sewed over and under the braids to achieve the ultimate fullness and no gaps…

Finished hair…

I added a little glycerin to a spray bottle with water and sprayed it on the hair as you are not supposed to put too much product and weigh it down. On Jade’s natural hair, I applied a heat protector and flat ironed her hair and the roots of the brazilian deep wave to blend. I then applied ORS Olive Oil Edge Control to her edges to lay them down. The textures blended nicely. She looks too cute.

 

It’s very easy to braid your own hair and do your own sew in with practice. Here is an old post that I did with a step by step picture tutorial: Tutorial: Installing Your Own Hair Extensions/Weave.
