I want to install some kinky curly with all my perimeter left out.  I want to be able to wear my hair in a puff, smoothed back with a headband or just out in a curly fro.  I have a 10" and 12" bundle.  Can someone please post a picture of the braiding pattern I would need and how to lay the tracks so that when my hair is smoothed back, you can't see a bump from where the tracks begin??  This will be my first time doing my own sew in.

There are many. Check the beginning of the thread. Eitger circular or the bullseye braid pattern would work. Flatness depends on the weft size and thickness of ure leave out hair. Also depends on how track is sewn

I am new to BMH so I am assuming ''bumping" means adding a post to be notified via email when a new post is added to the thread?? Is that right?  Anyhoo, this is great info! I am waiting on a shipment of 26", 24" and 22" in kinky curly hair and I am planning to attempt my own install for a fashion show the following week *EEECK*  I have done my own sew in in the past but I am trying to get into the more technical stuff now.  I want to leave out my full perimeter with a boomerang part AND I want to be able to wear all that beautiful fluffiness in a high bun when I need to tone it down and go to work.  I need to learn more about how to make sure my install is flat with no bumps (when I pull it back and up in a bun) and how to do my braid pattern.  Like would I have 2 perimeter rows?  1 to sew the wefts under to  hide them when the hair is pulled back and one to sew the net to?  Am I thinking about this too hard?
