  • Now, you need to get hold of the track of the hair weave. After cutting it to the length of the cornrow, take a special curved hair-weaving needle and a hair weaving thread. Thread the needle and tie a knot at the fag end of the thread.

  • Follow this method till you sew up tracks firmly to the cornrow braids.
