VIXEN SEW-IN 101

What is the Vixen Sew In?

The Vixen Sew In method is a weaving installation technique that allows for extra versatility in wearing and styling your hair. What makes this unique is how seamless and undetectable the weave is. With this method, your hair will be separated into 2-4 sections, with hair left out along the perimeter around your head as well as the cross sections of your scalp, and then, the 2-4 sections will be braided into beehive patterns, which will form the base on which the weave is sewn onto. After the hair is fully installed, you will be able to style your hair up in a ponytail or high bun, half-up half-down, braided down in pigtails, or simply curled and styled.  Styling possibilities are endless!

Who can do the Vixen Sew In?
The Vixen Sew In is not for everyone. Since this method requires a lot of leave out, the perfect candidate will have hair that is around the same length as the weaving hair, and her hair will be full and healthy. Because the leave out sections will be exposed, it will require extra tender love and care. We highly recommend that you pre-poo and deep condition the leave out, and use a heat protectant before using heat tools.

How do I select hair extensions for a Vixen Sew In?
Not all hair extensions will be suitable for your Vixen Sew In.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Hair Texture: The texture of the hair extensions must closely match the texture of your own hair when it is straight (whether it’s relaxed or flat ironed straight).
  • Short “Beard”: Having a short “beard” (which are the short hairs along the weft) will allow for a more seamless, neat finish. It also provides a more comfortable, itch-free wear.
