Side Part Weave with Leave Out Tutorial (Including Braid Pattern)

Side Part Sew In Weave - Longing 4 Length

Back with another sew-in tutorial, this time I am featuring a side part weave with leave out.  Today's model is my little cousin, Kyndra, who asked me to do her hair for graduation.  Believe it or not, this was K's first time having a side part weave - she normally does a center part.  I think both are equally beautiful, but there is a sultriness to a side part (especially if it covers one eye!) that gives it an extra sexy factor.  Since K is … [Read more...]

Sew In Weave with Net and Hair Left Out (How To)

How to Do a Sew in Weave – Longing4Length.com (2)

No pics, no hairdo - the end! So, my mom is my model for … [Read more...]

Senegalese Twists | 4 Easy Twist Styles

Senegalese Twists Styles - Longing 4 Length

One concern I had when I decided to install Senegalese twists was how versatile the style would be.  As you all know by now, I enjoy changing up my look and the idea of being restricted to one look for several weeks was not ideal, no matter how great a protective style it may be.  However, after a couple of weeks, my hair loosened up a bit to allow me to move the twists freely and I have rocked a few different looks.  Even with the large size … [Read more...]
