There are many types of weaves which can be woven into the hair, those of which are attached to the strands of hair and used to create length, as well as those which are attached to the root of the hair. Through the many styles of weaves which are available, they are popularly seen in Updo hairstyles that have braids and other visible weaving techniques, as well as through long hairstyles which are worn straight and down to the shoulders, or longer. Real hair weaves are often preferred, as they have been shown to appear more natural than synthetic weaves, as well as being easier to manage within the variety of hairstyles that are created through the styles.
When adding weaves into the hair, it is important to choose the type and length that are right for you. Think about how the hair is going to be styled while the weave is in place. Are you going to be able to maintain long hair? If so, than you should indeed consider long weaves within the hairstyle, but if not, than you may want to consider shorter weaves which can be easier managed as they require significantly less maintenance.
