After the hair is braided down, the scalp is then oiled and a net is placed over the hair. Keep in mind that whether your hairstylist leave uses a net or not is completely up the to stylist and doesn't mean that your stylist isn't a good one.

Sew through the weft or around the weft.
It is always best to sew around the weft, sewing through the weft will cause more shedding. Shedding of hair is natural because our natural hair sheds, but excessive shedding is something that can be avoided with proper care. Sewing around the wefts will minimize shedding and allow install take downs to be easier.
Hair styling is just as or even more important than the install. A stylist that KNOWS how to cut bomb layers, are a gem, because its all about the cut Honey!!
Ask your stylist whats her cutting techniques, ask to see photos of some layers she has done, is that the look you're going for?
