If you are looking to get the LA weave in Milton Keynes then here’s what you need to know first:

What is the LA weave?

It is a weave installation technique that is easier than regular weave installations and is suited for almost every hair type. Regular weaves applications are mostly well-suited for people with African or Afro-Caribbean hair because they could be easily be braided and tied. When used for people with fine, thin or European hair types, it would cause some problems such as being too tight, hair loss, weaves loosening up, etc.

There are hair salon’s offering applications for the LA weave in Milton Keynes and other cities like Luton, so you can easily get yours done.

What are the Benefits of the LA weave?

LA weaves are preferred for the following benefits they offer:

Fast and easy application

Removes easily

Lasts up to 2 months (after this maintenance is required)


No chemicals

No glue

No cornrows

No heat

Little to no pain (compared to regular weave application)

The LA weave is only applied by a certified and experienced hairstylist or expert, so if you are in Milton Keynes then it is best for you to get the LA weave done by a professional.

What is the application process?

It is done through micro rings that are placed on your scalp in a straight line. The rings are placed close to each other (as close as a few millimetres only). The micro rings are firmly squished in place with pliers so that the hair are held in their place properly and after that the hair weft are sewn on them, giving the illusion of your own natural hair.

How long is the process?

This should take lesser time than regular weave application and doesn’t take more than an hour or so. It could take lesser time if you only have a section of the head to have the weave done.

How long does an LA weave last?

The LA weave lasts around 10 weeks and then you have to go to your hair salon to get it refitted again. The best part about the LA weave is that it is zero-maintenance while it lasts. The weave gets tightened mostly because of your natural hair growth which pushes the weave downwards, thus loosening it. So, depending on how fast your hair growth is, it usually takes a little over 2-3 months for it to last.

If you invest in high quality hair then you wouldn’t have to spend so much on getting it redone every time and only pay for the application.
