Knowing Quick Weave is the Key to Business

The hottest selling beauty supply item in the market these days is the closure and quick weave combo. The closure and quick weave are inseparable. This is because the quick weave cannot be fully achieved without a proper closure. In the event that the closure is not properly used, parts of the hair can be seen through the tracks of the weave, making it look unnatural. In addition, the closure acts as a protective layer for the scalp. Even if the heavy weave is not fully connected to the hair part, the closure covers the scalp and protects it from potential damage or risk of hair loss from the glue. Quick Weave has attracted the attention of many women this year as an extension trend. Rather than using Weaving Thread to connect weave to the hair, quick weave is more affordable and easier to use.



What is Quick Weave?
A word that almost all beauty supply store owners have heard before, quick weave, what does this mean? The most common way to make extensions used to be by using weaving thread on cornrows. Quick weave is exactly as the word suggests, a quick method that uses a cap to protect the scalp while gluing on the extensions on top of the cap. For the best results, it is important to put the cap on clean, shampooed hair in cornrows. Wearing a plastic cap under a stocking cap will prevent glue from getting on any real hair, which is the preferred method for many women. The great thing about quick weave is that beauty salon results can be achieved at home. Quick weave is a simple and efficient way to create a perfect hairstyle. This method is expected to continue to grow in popularity in the future as more and more people learn how effective it is through tutorials on social media or Youtube.
