Which Sew-In Weave Technique Wins: Full Head vs. Partial vs. Closure?

When we talk about sew in weave techniques, there are 3 essential methods: Full head sew-in, partial sew-in, and closure sew-in, which one is better for you? Let's find out which technique is better for you!

  1. Full Head Sew-In (No leave out):

    • Overview: A full sew-in, the entire head is braided or cornrowed, and hair wefts (hair bundles / weaves) are sewn onto the braids from the bottom to the top. This technique provides full coverage and versatility in styling since the wefts are sewn in all over the head.
    • Pros:
      • Provides complete coverage for a transformative look.
      • Offers versatility in styling without any natural hair leaving out.
    • Cons:
      • Requires regular maintenance due to the entire head being covered with wefts.
      • May cause tension on the scalp if not installed properly.

  2. Partial Sew-In (Leave out):

    • OverviewA partial sew-in involves sewing in wefts of hair to only a portion of the head, leaving some of the natural hair out. This technique is often used to add volume or length to specific areas, such as the back or sides, while blending the natural hair with the wefts.
    • Pros:
      • Adds volume or length to specific areas while maintaining a natural look.
      • Allows for a seamless blend between natural hair and hair wefts.
    • Cons:
      • Requires careful blending of natural hair with wefts for a natural finish.
      • Offers less coverage compared to full head sew-ins.

  3. Closure Sew-In / Frontal Sew-in (No leave out):

    • Overview: Closure sew-in involves attaching hair wefts onto braided hair with a lace closure piece(usually 4*4 or 5*5 inch closure). This creates a realistic parting and scalp appearance. The technique offers versatility in parting styles, protects natural hair, and provides a seamless finish for a polished look. A frontal is similar to a closure but larger(13*4 or 13*6 inch), covering the entire front hairline from ear to ear. It allows for more versatility in styling, as it can be parted in different ways and styled into various hairstyles, including pulled back styles.
    • Pros:
      • Provides a realistic finish with no need for leaving out natural hair around the parting area.
      • Offers a seamless appearance with minimal maintenance.
    • Cons:
      • Requires proper installation to achieve a natural blend with the rest of the hair.
      • May be more expensive compared to other methods due to the cost of closures / frontals.

Full head sew in and partial sew in are also called traditional sew in, which sew hair wefts onto a base of braided hair to add length and/or thickness. Closure sew-ins use a closure piece to seal the top of the sew-in, creating a more realistic scalp appearance and hairline. The decision between full head, partial, or closure sew-in weave methods hinges on various factors, including desired coverage, styling versatility, and maintenance preferences. While each approach offers distinct advantages and considerations, there is no definitive "winner" as suitability is contingent upon individual needs and preferences. By carefully evaluating the pros and cons of each method, you can make an informed choice that aligns seamlessly with your hair goals and lifestyle, ensuring a hair transformation that enhances your beauty and confidence.
