A weave works well when you have damaged hair or you just want some instant, not to mention easier to work with, hair. A two-tone weave is even better. Hey, two colors added into your hair creates depth and dimension, making it look fuller and thicker. You're definitely not going to turn that down. Make the most of your hair with the right hair products and styling techniques.
One way to show off a two-toned color in your weave is with big, bouncy curls. If you have bang hair in your weave add curls here too, but only at the ends to avoid a too-poufy look right around your face. To rock a chic curly style a la Beyonce, turn to a smaller curling iron and focus the curls around the ends of your hair. Don't forget to mist over your tres-chic two-tone hair with a medium-hold hairspray after to set those curls.
Soft waves are nice, but to make as rad of a style as your two-tone color, try big, voluminous waves. The key to this bodylicious style is to use a medium-sized curling iron and apply some paste or a bit of wax through your hair before starting to give your hair some hold. After curling, go over your hair with a wide-toothed comb to loosen the curls up and turn them into big, gorgeous waves.
A high pony styled straight and sleek always looks uber-glam and sophisticated. It doesn't matter if you have both colors added around the top, bottom or all around in your weave; all the color shows through with a high ponytail style. Styling gel works best to achieve that sleek effect, then rake your hair up into a ponytail at the crown of your head. Flat iron over the ponytail hair and finish with a bit of smoothing serum to lock your style in and prevent humidity from crimping your style.
A wrapped pony is a fun take on the basic ponytail style; you still get your hair out of your face, but it's a lot more fun and unpredictable, not to mention it shows off your chic two-tone color from all angles. Start by styling your weave into a ponytail just above the crown of your head -- a sleek sideswept bang looks lovely incorporated into this look -- then make three large curls in the ponytail hair with a 3-inch wide curling iron and wrap the ponytail up, almost folding it in half and pinning it in place.
It's just as important to take care of the hair in your weave as it is to care for your natural hair. Apply a thermal heat protectant before styling your hair with any heat styling tools. The hair still gets heated up, but the product adds a light coating to protect the hair, sort of like an invisible shield on your strands. And always condition after washing the hair.
