First of all, What is a Side Part Sew in (Hair extension)?

This is a specific method of braiding your hair, in order to put on a flawless side-part wig after you are done with the process.

Some women believe that this style is very fashionable, Vogue-like, so chic, and ideal for 2019! Other women believe that this type of a hairstyle is a lot easier to style and do, since you will have a lot more volume on one side of your head (left or right) which you can twist around, iron, or curl, based on your preference.

But first, we need to explain to you what’s the process like and teach you the most basic stuff regarding sew-ins.

So, How To Do A Side Part Hair Sew In? (The Tutorial)

Step 1: Always start with clean hair. Use your favorite shampoo & a conditioner and wash away any imperfections. Make sure you wash your hair thoroughly since you will be stuck with your wig for a few weeks to come.

Step 2: Part your hair with your comb by leaving a bit more hair on one side (left or right). Once you do, you will start with the braiding process.

Braiding Pattern – Make sure all of your braids are small and petite and make sure you braid your hair starting at the back and at your roots. Wrap up each braid by twisting it until you get to your ends. Also, if you do smaller braids the track will be a lot less visible and unnoticeable, so keep that in mind as you go.

Here is a picture of how you should braid your hair:

You can do this step, as well as all the others on your own if you are confident enough, or you can ask a friend or your mom to help you out. If none of you are experienced, then it might be best to ask a professional hairdresser for help.

Step 3: Place a hairnet on top of your head. It would be best if you could match the hairnet color to your natural hair color since it will blend in a lot more seamlessly. You will sew your wig directly on top of this net, so make sure it is the right size for your head, as well as for your forehead.

Step 4: Use a pair of needles to sew in the hair (wig). Make sure you don’t part your hair directly on the middle and choose which side you’d like to accentuate. Stitch the weave by doing slow & steady motions starting at the back first. Make single tracks on each side and make sure that the entire unit is covered. Once you get to the front make your much-wanted side part.

Also, try to purchase the same colored thread as your chosen wig. This will make your fake hair appear a lot more natural.

Step 5: Cut your hair if you are not satisfied with its current length level. If you are satisfied, simply blow dry it and comb through, until you get your desired hairstyle.

On average, it may take you around 2-3 hours to get all of this done.

Pro tip: Oh and also, you can try out a side part closure

But, What is a Closure?

This is a piece of hair which is placed on one particular part of your head with lace.

It is usually around 3-4 inches long, and it should be colored exactly like your hair in order to blend in seamlessly. These closures can be sewed in or even glued on, and are quite expensive but can look really natural once placed down.

This closure can be really important if you want to accentuate one part specifically, such as you would with this deep side part hairstyle.
