Which Style Fits You Best?

Sis! I can understand your struggles with choosing the right style for you.

Did you ever speak with your stylist ? A stylist who has been working with you for over a decade should have a good idea of your hair style preferences. When you are in her chair, your stylist needs to know what you think. This means you will spend Saturday with your stylist.

For me, I’m an artist and a hairdresser. Since Rihanna started wearing her short hair , I have been wearing it shorter . While I was a fan of sew-ins in all textures and lengths in the past I wasn’t a fan of doing my hair myself or taking it to the salon. I don’t like sitting for long periods of time and my head is very tender. Without a wig, my preferred style is short hair.

Some people may confuse the various types of sewins. I will be focusing on the two most common sewins that women request when having their hair done. Are they alike? They aren’t. The one has hair out, the other doesn’t. The Sew-in you choose should be based on your morning routine.

I will also discuss the Pros and Con of traditional and partial sewing.

Partial Sew-in

What is a partial sewing-in? A partial sew in is a hairstyle which allows women to style their hair differently.

You have many hairstyles like a side or middle part. Your stylist may allow you to wear your hair in a ponytail or bun depending on how long your hair is. This style is loved by some, but others may not be familiar with the care required to maintain it.

Here are the pros and cons to a partial-sew-in so you can decide if this hairstyle suits you.



A versatile sew-in is a great idea. When you are making a partial seam-in, the first thing that you must do is determine the texture to be used. The next step is the blending. Some may not think this is important but it is. You will leave some hair out at the edges. This is enough hair to create a left, right and middle section. You can also use the sides and back to make a ponytail, or a bun.

Natural realness

It’s important that your sew in has the inherent realness. Natural realness is when your hair can be pulled up into a ponytail with no lumps. Natural realness is when you can pull your hair up in a bun and then pull it back into a ponytail with no lumps or bumps.


Heat damage

Partial sew-ins can cause heat damage, especially for straight hair. If you’re a natural beauty who chooses to wear extensions private label straight, your hair will need to be straightened at least once a week.


Blending is crucial when it comes down to natural beauty. I would suggest that someone with 4c hair get extensions that match their texture. Private Label has the straight, kinky texture. While you would need to ensure that the extensions blend with your natural hair, purchasing hair that matches this texture is a great way to simplify your life.

Traditional Sew-in

Traditional sew-ins are styles that leave no hair out.

This hairstyle suits my natural, relaxed beauty who is too busy to do her hair every morning. This hairstyle is great for women who don’t mind putting heat on their hair once a week.

While maintenance is less than that of a partial sewing machine, there are still pros and cons to traditional sew-ins.



There is no need to blend. Can I get an AMEN? Blending with traditional sew in is not necessary. However, you must close the top of the fabric so it doesn’t look like a cone.

This part is not for everyone. It takes patience and time. Splitting the track is a good trick once you reach the top. Your wefts should be thin. To ensure a flat closure, make sure you close the circle while you are combing your hair.

After the closure is closed, heat the curling iron to melt the hair. This is to ensure your hair stays flat.

Protective style

This is the style that I recommend for my natural beauty. There’s no need to be concerned about heat. You can get up whenever you like.

Low maintenance

Straight hair can sometimes be difficult to manage because it needs to be curled to look fresh.

There are other ways to get around this. You can curl your hair by wrapping it at night and letting it dry overnight before you go to bed. This style is easy to maintain if you cover your hair every night.

You will need to flat iron hair if you don’t wrap it at night or have a “dent” in your back. This can be frustrating.



The only problem I have with traditional sew in is its tendency to appear wavy.

You know that you don’t want to leave any hair out, so you won’t be able to create a part. Be careful about how much hair you use. If you have too many hairs, your hair will look like a wig.

Two packs or bundles of fabric will suffice for your traditional sew in.

Less Versatility

We all love to change our appearances depending on what we wear or how we spend our nights.

It’s not easy to sew a traditional sew in. It’s not possible to put it in a ponytail or high bun. You can’t push it back or part it. It must be worn in the same way that your stylist has styled it.

This hairstyle is not right for you if you like to change things.

Tell me, what is your preferred style? Do you prefer a classic sew-in style or do you prefer a more casual look?
