What are the top trends in weaves right now? (styles, colours, etc.)

The top trend in weaves right now are tape ins, micro-links, lace wigs and quick weaves. These trending styles are versatile weaves that can be pulled into high ponytails or half-up half-down styles. 

Have lace front techniques changed over the last year or two? If so, how?

People are going towards more glueless methods if they are wearing it to keep up with a trend. Hair loss wig wearers are still wearing glue methods.

How is social media driving weave trends? Are there trends that have become very popular due to social media?

Social media pushes a trend very quickly so the lifetime of a trend is short lived, due to the fact that we can all see the trend worldwide at the same time in REAL TIME. So, people are ready for what’s next almost immediately. Style is usually brought back around with a little twist.
