What Are the Differences Between Hair Weaves, Wigs & Extensions?

Hair Weaves

hair weavesHair weaves are extensions that are sewn into braids at the root of the hair. They are applied by a hair stylist and can last for weeks. You generally have to go back to the hair salon to have the removed or replaced. This should be replaced when the roots start to show visible growth. Weaves allow you to choose any length or texture you want, from straight to curly, and can be styled without damaging your real hair.


Many people find wigs more convenient than hair weaves because they allow you to change your style instantly without having to go to the salon. However, they should be cut to frame your face so they look more natural. Since wigs don’t have the staying power that weaves do, they may slide on your head or even fall off. Lace wigs, or lace front weaves, are lighter and more breathable than traditional wigs, making them more comfortable. 

Hair Extensions

Extensions can be glued to the hair like weaves, or clipped in for a temporary change. If the extensions are glued in, they have to be applied in a hair salon, which can be costly and time-consuming. Applying clip-in extensions yourself is easier and more convenient, especially if you are accustomed to styling your own hair.

When you want to change up your look, real human hair weaves, wigs, and hair extensions from All Authentic Girl in Brooklyn give you plenty of options. Allow a friendly staff member to help you choose the right one for you. Call today at (718) 272-1120 or visit their website for more information.
