Weave me over
DIYs are not limited to clothes, shoes and accessories, they also include hair. As Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Katy Perry have shown us wigs and weaves are the new fashion accessory. And they can really pull an outfit together.
The great thing about making the stocking cap base out of tights is that it fits your head perfectly and is really snug. Because the hair is bonded it lies flat thus making it appear more natural and less bulky. Ayo used synthetic weave but you could use the ever popular brazilian or mongolian weave or even a remi yaki which I think resembles pressed black hair best, it has a beautiful texture.
My sister, Ayomide, made this awesome weave cap using a pair of forty dernier tights, two packets of weave and bonding glue. I absolutely love the results. Ayo and I have chemical free, natural hair and this is a great way to incorporate some versatilty into our look without compromising the integrity of our hair. Oh my gosh, I sound like a natural hair advocate - which I'm definitely not. I just like having natural hair.

|Ayo used synthetic weave she isn't a fan of human hair|
|It's also inexpensive (in complarison to human hair) and can be tonged|
|She made a stocking cap using the tights and glued the hair to it. She also added snap comb clips for security at the front and back of the cap. This is the inside of the weave cap btw.|
|The weave cap has a small u shaped opening at the front so that a section of Ayo's (pressed) hair can be brushed over the tracks and blend in with the extensions|
