5 cool tips to rock your weaves the Sheila Mwinyigha way

It's sexy 101 made simple.

Her timeless fashion has always been one righted for envy, she not only knows how to dress the occasion but to adorn her plus size figure in a flattering yet practical way.

Her weaves however, deserve an award of their own.

One of the basic reasons as to why women sew in weaves is to give the idea that whatever the design, it's real hair. That's why some are even retailing at more than a hundred thousand. The fear is to that is their real hair, unfortunately the rather thin line between illusioned beauty and careless complacency has been breached a thousand times over by women who don’t know how to rock weaves and wigs.


Need a lesson? Ladies take notes.

2. If you decide on a wig, make sure the edges look real. Sheila flopped on this one but we love the color.

3. If done right a messy weave can look pretty alluring. Note, there's the good kind of messy and then there's just really bad hair.

4. Make sure your natural hair is the same color as the weave you wear.

5. Extensions look amazing if done right, the secret is in keeping it simple. If your hair isn't as great as soft to hold without gel, then use it but to minimal lengths.
