For table worked pieces: hair must be at least 12 inches or longer. Chemically treated or colored hair can be woven, hair stored away for years or your own hair.
For the basket weave pattern, hair must be at least 2 inches or longer in length.
If hair is being cut, the longest strands are preferred, part the hair (go underneath) cut a small amount close to the scalp. Go to another area and do the same, keep hair shafts going all in the same direction. Secure with a hair tie at the end which was closest to the scalp.
