How to Do a Vixen Sew In
Learn how to do a Vixen Sew In with OUTRE’s Velvet Brazilian hair. In collaboration with one of NYC’s Vixen Sew In specialists, @HairByLin, our step-by-step tutorial will show you how to do a vertical Vixen Sew In with the newest addition to the Velvet Remi family.
Step by Step Guide
STEP 1 // BRAIDING
– Start off by sectioning the model’s hair about an inch around the perimeter and leave out the middle vertical cross-section of the model’s hair as well. Then, braid those sections down. Make sure to leave out enough hair to blend with the weave for a more seamless and natural look.
– Now, you will have two sections within the braided down leave out sections, which you will braid using the “Beehive Method,” going around in a circular motion.
STEP 2 // SEWING
– Begin sewing the weave from behind the ear going down, and sew from left to right until you reach the top, and then sew the last track across (as demonstrated) for a more seamless and flat look.
Note: We recommend doubling the tracks for more volume, and using the “Foldover Method” instead of cutting the tracks to prevent shedding.
STEP 3 // BLENDING
– After completing the sew in, unbraid the leave out around the perimeter and middle cross-section, and spritz or apply a heat protectant on those areas.
– Next, flat iron the leave out smoothly so that it blends seamlessly with the weave.
Note: Normally, you would have to trim the beards (beards = short hairs along the weft) at this point, but Velvet Brazilian comes with a Precision-Cut Weft, so you can skip that step! 😉
STEP 4 // STYLING
– The best part about the Vixen Sew In is the unlimited styling options you have! Whether you want to throw your hair up into a high ponytail or bun, or braid it down into French braided pigtails, or simply leave it sleek straight, it’s up to you. Unleash your styling creativity!
