Post A History of Virgin Hair Weaves
The popularity of these weaves grew until Christina started getting invitations from other countries to teach her now-famous sew-in hair weave technique. The sew-in hair weave involved first sewing the hair on a netting, then braiding the hair into cornrows, and finally sewing the netting to the hair.

Jenkin’s technique has undergone various improvements, most notably in the 1980s, when hair started looking more natural. How? Through human hair weaves, of course. Human hair weaves have exploded in popularity since then, with an industry boom by the end of the nineties. The largest exporters of human hair are Asian countries like India, Indonesia, China and Korea. Much of this hair comes from small agents who tour Chinese, Indian and Eastern European villages.

The popularity of weaves and hair extensions would dip and peak throughout the 20th century according to media and music influences. In the 1940s, they fell out of fashion briefly, in part due to more popular styles like the Flapper Girl, which black women also adopted. However, from the forties to the eighties, the human hair weave business has been booming, with different styles like colorful weaves coming into play.

Human hair weaves and wigs now come in a variety of styles, for both men and women. While men have often opted to wear these weaves for functionality (to cover balding areas), it is becoming increasingly common for them to use weaves for aesthetic purposes.

Today, weave culture is as widespread as it has ever been, although black women have access to a greater variety of hairstyles than ever before. Entertainers bring weaving in and out of fashion, but extensions remain commonly seen, especially on young black women. Time will tell what new changes human hair weaves will see in the future.
