When braiding down your braid pattern for your lace closure sew in, leave out a thin amount of hair in the front if you have small forehead space for your most realistic result. If you have larger forehead space, your sewin will look most realistic for you if you do not leave out any of your real hair. You will learn in this step how to also sew your weaving net. When wearing the lace closure sew in, braiding with braiding hair is critical to prevent your real hair from frizzing underneath your install. Also, braiding hair and a weaving net protects the health of your hair by adding strength to weak and/or thin hair and it also prevents the weight of your extensions from damaging your hair because the weight is on the net and not your real hair!

Welcome to step number two of the lace closure sew in tutorial in this that I will be teaching you step-by-step how to prepare your braiding pattern as well as how to sew on your weaving net so now I have just braided down my braid pattern into show you how you want to do it you have to first determine where you want your actual part to be you can have it either to the left side of the right side or the middle me I prefer to have my part in the middle you want to part as far back as the length of your closure so you can put your closure against your head to measure and see how far back you need to go after you do that you have to start braiding your braids away from you part so when you part your closure and lay your hair down for styling you will actually see her scalp through the closure to help it blend very easily so when you begin you have to braid a braid that goes on both sides away from your part now for me I like to put out a little bit leave out because I have a smaller forehead now if you have a wider forehead it will look just as great if you don't leave out any hairs but you want to make sure that if you do that you part a very small amount of hair just in the front so it can cover the closure and then let two braids hang loose so you know that's the hair that will be your leave out so now after that you want to braid starting with your two braids after that to go all the way to the sides of your hand so as you can see I braided all the way to the side and then if I turn around you will notice that I also brought the braid all the way to the back now you want to make sure to go all the way to the back because when you sew down your weaving net it will actually help to lay down your weaving net very flat at the nape of your head so once again if you are going to have leave out you are going to leave out a small area of hair here for if but if not you are going to braid that braid all the way down so since I have leave out I have two braids hanging down here now after that you want to braid two braids going to the side and remember this braid is going all the way around to the nape of the neck as well as the other braid as well so as you can see the other braid here goes all way around the nape after that you are going to start braiding your braids all the way to the back away from the part of your closure and then you are going to connect one braid to another so I probably have anywhere from 10 to about 14 braids total and as you can see I have about six braids left down here that because every two braids that you braid on you scalp you want to connect it at the end so now that I've shown you have actually braid your hair down you then want to go ahead and begin sewing each braid down to your head so that you can actually sew on your weaving net so now here we are at the moment where you have to sew down the loose ends of your braids to your head to complete your braid pattern so remember when you braided your braids going to the back you want to make sure to join two braids at a time so that way you can have anywhere from about 5 to 8 braids at the back depending on how small or big your braids actually are so now at this moment what you want to do I will be showing you for example how to break down the braid here on the edge of my head you are going to repeat the same process over the rest of your braids as well so what you will be doing is you will lift your braid going upwards and you will tuck it into an available space on your braid pattern then after that you want to begin sewing all the way up and then when you reach this loose end you can simply leave it loose because you don't have to sew it down you just want sew down he bulk of your braids so that way is very easy for you to sew down your weaving net save so that you can have a very flat install but if you want to you can fold the small tail end back over and sew it down but it's unnecessary so now that you know the process you want to make sure to go ahead and prepare your weaving needles and your thread and then you want to begin sewing down your braids to complete your braid pattern so now with my needle and thread in my right hand I am going to take my left hand and I'm going to fold my braid down in between the space of my braid pattern and then I'm going to begin stitching so that is very flat start at the base take your needle put it into a neighboring braid and then put it through the base of your folded braid and then once you pull it though you want to create a knot once you have created your knot you are going to continue working up your braid to finish stitching it down so make sure is a very flat in between two braids laying it very flat and putting it through the neighboring braid and then put it through the braid that you folded over once you do that grab your thread wrap the thread around the needle once twice and pull the needle straight through so now we have created our second knot so continue repeating this process all the way up go through a neighboring braid and the braid you folded down pull the needle out wrap the string around the needle once twice and then pull through make sure to keep sewing up as far as you can so that way your braid can be very flat naturally all braids taper slightly at the ends as they become a little thinner you don't have to fold that back down and sew it to your braids but you can if you want to is perfectly optional so now after you have secured your last knot you want to open up the thread and pull it to slightly tighten in the last knot you created after that you cut the string above the knot and then you finish stitching down your braid when you put on your weaving net this piece here this very small piece will lay down very flatly edges some on your weaving that so you don't have to sew it down as stated again so just cut the thread off from you last knot and then continue the rest of the process until all of your braids have been sewn down so once you finish your braid pattern and you have sewn the remaining braids down this is braid pattern should look right before sewing on your weaving net so now that your braiding pattern is complete I will be showing you step-by-step how so your weaving net onto your braids so now this is the moment where you will begin sewing your weaving that down to your braid pattern base so just to make sure you don't actually sew your perimeter braid you want to make sure you locate where they are they are my first two braids here so I know that when I begin sewing have to skip a braid over to sew for now going to talk these perimeter braids here behind my ears and begin sewing down the weaving net now the way you lay your weaving net on your braid pattern will depend on your preference or it really doesn't matter because you can lay it down the short way or you can lay it down long way me I usually lay it down the short way so I will show you exactly how to do so when you are laying it down the short way long net will hang behind your head you are going to apply the net right where you have to sew it down on your base now some individuals like to use bobby pins to stop it from shifting but you don't necessarily have to you can just place your hand where you want to be and begin stitching to make sure that its stitched right against your part where you will be showing the lace closure part you want to make sure that you actually stitch around the braids as close as you can to were your visible scalp is seen after you stitch each braid going to go all the way around and then after that you are going to trim off the piece of net that's here in the middle so that way this whole area is complete after that you did that then go around the do the same thing over your entire head to sew down the net only on the perimeter braid at that point so to begin grab the short end lay it exactly over the braids where you want to stitch and begin stitching I'm going to stitch on the right side here and you will always form you knots at the very beginning of each cornrow braid so you go through your net go under your braid and then go back out to the net pull the needle out and then you are going to wrap the needle around the string twice and then pull through to create a knot so there's your first knot and for extra security you can do the same thing once again go through the string once and then twice and then pull straight through now that we have the first stitch secured you are going to go ahead and repeat the same process on each braid so you can go directly to the next to braid go through the net under the cornrow right at the beginning pull through go through the string once twice and then pull through to create your knot work your way all the way around your braids that's going away from your part so now that I've shown you the second one you are going to go to the third one then you are going to go all the way around to complete this top portion cut the rest of and then finish stitching around your braids and go around the perimeter of your head as you can see I started my first stitch here on the right side of my head at the perimeter braid and I went all the way around the part where I want my lace to show and then I ended my last stitch here now before you actually cut the remaining net in the middle makes you so just a few stitches and so that way you don't cut off too much net so know take your scissors and carefully remove the net that's in the middle where your lace closure part will be shown after you finish trimming your netting in the middle make sure to clean up any small pieces that are around the surrounding braids and then finish sewing down the net across all of your braid pattern just by following your perimeter braid and going all the way around your head after you finish stitching trim off the rest of the lace and then you braid pattern with your net will be complete after sewing my weaving that to my braids this is the completed look of my braid pattern base after trimming off the excess netting and that wraps up step number two of the lace closure sew in
