Gone are the days when you had to be born with long luscious curls or pin-straight hair to flaunt it. Nowadays, it's incredible how easy switching up your hair can be with sew-in hairstyles. With so many hair options and products available, it is simpler than ever to change your look and hair. With the help of a trusted stylist, a good quality sew-in, and proper care, you can make your dream hair last up to 8 weeks (via Byrdie). You don't have to wait years to grow your hair because, with sew-in hairstyles, you can achieve the perfect hair within hours, and you get to choose the length, thickness, and texture you want (via Hair Theme). A sew-in hairstyle is perfect for you if you're going to let your natural hair grow and give it a little break from box braids or straight backs (via Cosmopolitan).

Remember that maintaining a good sew-in comes with great responsibility — such as it is a lot of hair — because you have to keep it clean. After all, sew-ins and sweat don't do well together (via Refinery29). Plus, more hair means more drying time. Also, make sure not to go more than 4-6 weeks without proper stylist care because everyone's hair grows at different lengths, and you want the sew-in looking gorgeous.
