As many women know, sew in weaves are a great way to switch up your style. Whether you’re looking to add some color, length, or even rock a short cut, weaves offer a limitless amount of variety. Sew-ins are the most popular weaving option, as it offers a great deal of protection for your actual hair underneath since the weave will be sewn in as opposed to glued or fused to the hair.
So whether you’re looking for a new style without the damage or commitment, or you’re looking to let your hair rest for a while, here are 25 great sew-in hairstyles to consider.

If you’ve wanted to see how you’d look with short hair or bob without having to commit to actually cutting your hair, installing a sew-in is a great option.
