20 Stunning Sew in Hairstyles and Long Weave Hairstyles for Black Women
We all have days where we want to switch up our hairstyle. For instance, maybe we’re in the middle of growing out a short cut, and It’s. Taking. Forever. Generally speaking, it’s far easier (and faster) to cut than it is to grow. That is, unless you’re opting for a weave! Weaves are an easy way to skip the months of growing out your hair, so you can rock those long locks now. Check out these amazing long weaves that are seamless, stunning and beautiful. They’ll have you saying: “I can’t believe it’s not… real!”

Side bangs look adorable with long hair. We love Kerry’s silky bangs that match well with her mid-length hair. Not to mention they’re super versatile, you can easily pin them back or wear a headband when you want your hair out of your face.

1212 Face-Framing Curls
This is a great look to try if you want to slim down a chubby face. Make sure the front curls directly line your face for an elongating effect. Remember that these type of curls don’t look good tousled, so they may be a bit high maintenance.
