Sew Hot: 20 Gorgeous Sew-In Hairstyles

A great thing about hair and the various styles that you can create with it, is that you don’t necessarily have to have the length, thickness and texture of your dreams to achieve a certain look. In the case of this round-up, it’s all about the beauty, functionality and versatility of hair extensions, specifically sew-ins.
The Great Potential of Sew-In Hairstyles

If you are unfamiliar with what exactly a sew-in weave is, it is hair extensions that are sewn to your existing hair. Your hair is braided down in a certain pattern (depending on the desired look) and the hair extensions are sewn to the braids. You can sew directly on the braid or put a net on and sew through it. For a more realistic looking sew-in, leaving some of your hair out in the front, top or the sides is often recommended. So, if you are eager to try a stylish new hairstyle, but don’t have the necessary length or thickness, feel free to try out some of the fabulous sew-in hairstyles on this list. They are SEW hot!!

But now, we have “animal free” versions of all shades available, if you choose to unleash your creativity and indulge in bold or soft and tender purple highlights!
Hair Colors Which Pair Best with Purple Highlights
