How to Do a ‘Quick Weave’ Site on YouTube
A “quick weave” is a popular hair styling method that is primarily used in the African American community. The quick weave offers the look of a weave. Unlike a regular weave, you can easily take the quick weave off just as you would take off a wig.
If you are knowledgeable about quick weaves and how to maintain them, you can share that knowledge by creating a quick weave site on YouTube.

‘Quick Weave’ Site on YouTube
Create your own quick weave videos with a digital camera or camcorder. To make things easier, you can have a friend do the recording. If no friend is available, try setting your digital camera on a tripod.
The goal is to make several quick weave videos, such as how to do a quick weave; tips for closing the top of the quick weave; how to shampoo your quick weave; and how to style your quick weave. The camera recording should capture actual footage of you performing these tasks on your head or on another person’s head. The footage should include “close-ups,” so the viewer can see exactly how to do the quick weave.
Import the quick weave videos from your digital camera to your computer. This is done by connecting a mini-USB cable from your camera to the USB port on your computer.
