How to Cut Hair Tracks for a Quick Weave

Learn how to cut hair tracks for a quick weave from celebrity hairstylist Ellin LaVar in this Howcast black hair tutorial.


Today, we're going to learn how to cut tracks for our weaves.

First, you want to start at the bottom. You take the track, put it at the edge of the hairline and at the other edge of the other hairline. Now, I like to go just a teeny bit further just to be sure.

Then you cut the track, then you want to go about an inch. If you're going to make it very tight in the back and if you're going to cut it tight to the head, you want to lay the track right next to the first track. You're going to measure just an eighth of an inch up.

Then you're going to continue that all the way up your head. When you get to the top of your ear, you're going to do the same, right around your head like that. Then, you're going to cut each piece and lay it down.

That's how you cut tracks for your weave.
