BillysBride, I may be enlisting your help when I decide what kind of hair I need to purchase but my mission now is finding a style because I have NO idea what kind of style I want. I think I need to just start looking at some styles and narrow it down that way. I know I don't want ANY hair in/on my face. I did want something kind of messy looking but then I got to thinking about the wind and the LAST thing I want is for my hair to get messed up before the day is over. I need to get to searching....and register for a photobucket account.
Yea girl, just post away! Start narrowing down what you like and just work from there.

They get a bad rap because i think people assume they are heavy/hot...and they really ARE NOT. They are very open and breathable.

I'm gonna start accumulating month to month and doing some serious searching. If I'm able to find a wedding style that I like in a Quick Weave, I'm all over it. The versatility factor is just unmatched. To be able to go from curly, to straight, long to short in a matter of minutes and look amazing is exactly what I need to be focused on.
Ok I have a question...Is this the half wig or is this the lace wig?

There are Quik Weaves in both half and full caps....one site that I use all the time is Hair Sisters.com They have braiding, and weaving hair, as well as all KINDS of lace fronts...those you can glue at the hairline, and those that have comb attachments.

Thats the problem I've always had with sew ins! They are very limiting in a way..you either do a low ponytail or leave it down. Thats the only two ways I know. If you do an updo, you always have that "ledge" in the back. You can try to do it as tight as possible to press it down more...or maybe request that she seperate the weft before she puts it in and do smaller braids in the back so that the hair has a better chance of lying down? I'm not sure..

Billy bride I really like your hair. I just want to know what kind it is. I'm wear weave also and yours is really nice
Thanks! Quick Weave! Though it's not the actual brand name I don't think...I just call all of the partials and full wigs that. I just blended the front and voila! That was my Easter style. It had two combs in front, one in back and lace along the front past the combs...no glue or anything. Just parted my hair about an inch behind my hairline all the way around to behind the ears, used some marcelle's to bump some waves into my hair, and attached the wig. That was it! I've had people tell me I was lying when I said it wasn't mine. lol

I am the self proclaimed "quick weaver of the world" lol So I just thought I'd post some pics of me and my quick weaves. They are extremely convenient when you don't feel like doing your hair and need something quick. And like Billysbride said they are very inexpensive and easy to use. They can be a little shiny at first but as she said once you lay on it a few days you'll be good to go. They also have human hair ones that you can curl and etc for about $40 as well as "lace front" quick weaves.

The last one is Super Shiny it was when I first got it.

a>- me at MAC


a>-in Miami

a>-sorry about my "just woke up" face lol I was getting ready for work

a>-in miami (I had multiple ones to switch it up! lol)


Ok I have a couple of questions about quick weave...Now is the glue on ur hair? Once u take the weave off do the glue mess up ur hair? I really want to try this for my BD shoot, but dont want it damaging my hair...Please help me out.

Hey, just to clarify..>QUICK WEAVES ARE NOT TRUE WEAVES! There is no glue, and no stitching. They are called "quick weaves" because of the ease of attaching them. It's basically a wig. You can get either "full cap" or "half". Half is used when you only want the length/fullness from about mid-crown to nape. Full is just like it sounds...full head. They have comb attachments front and back.

 

I LOVE them because they allow for a lot of versatility with changing up your look (curly, straight, long, short) without time consuming weaving or gluing and NO damage.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
