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 think that it really depends on where you are in the world Billysbride. What you refer to as a "quick weave" I know of as a half wig. You basically pull your hair back into a ponytail with the exception of the front perimeter and then attach the wig sing the clips. Your hair is then blended with it...voila.

      In MY neck of the woods a quick weave is done by molding wet hair with gel till its hard and then attaching wefted track hair with glue to YOUR hair. Depending on the style, some of your hair is left out to cover the tracks or a closure piece is used to close the weave.

        lol..definitely geography plays a part here! Half wigs are literal for us. Even in the online stores I frequent...half wigs are literally half wigs. The Quick Weave's I'm talking about are an actual brand name. They say that on the tag and are manufactured by a few different companies that offer them now. One of the most prevalent is Outre`. Big white tag with the style name/number/color and a photo of a model wearing the style and the tag always says "Quick Weave". The same type that lodixon is talking about..those are what I'm used to being referred to as quick weaves. Here they are: http://www.expertwig....uick_Weave.htm and here: http://store.goldenm...om/ouquwen.html

        Weave for us covers both attachment types: bonding with glue, OR sewing in the tracks. If you have a sewn in weave, then you stitch it to cornrows. If you are using bonding glue, the hair just needs to be parted row by row (no cornrows) and blended. I wore mine that way for years back in college, but ultimately it was just too painstaking for me as far as maintanence.

        I've never heard of anything to do with molding hair with gel! Really, really interesting what varies state to state!

        I guess for purposes of being uniform, when we talk about a method we need to start putting a short break down OF that method so we don't confuse people any more than they already are if they aren't familiar with these things. lol Who knew weave could be so damn technical?

              For me...

              A Quick weave is when they braid your hair underneath, then place a wig cap (stocking cap) over your hair and glue tracks of hair on that....

              It's interesting to see all the different terms for hairstyles.

              As for my hair, I'm going for my hair coming over my shoulders, all on one side, or some type of side ponytail with a flower. Will try to post pics soon!

                    I guess it depends on where you live. Where I'm from the quick weave that you refer to is a half wig or full wig. I actually went today and had my sewn in and it looks nice but the girl who did it is not a very good stylist. she sewed the weave in very good but she didn't really have a style that I liked. As soon as I learn how to post the pictures I will.

                    The third one is glued in and that pulled my hair out.
