Christina Jenkins: The inventor of the weave
Jenkins, an African-American woman, thought that it would be more feasible to sew hair directly to the head instead of weaving hair together and attaching it to the scalp with pins. Christina Jenkins and her husband Duke established a company called Christina's Hair Weaves in the early 1950s. People from around the world wanted to learn from the woman who invented hair weaves, and these individuals paid her to come to their countries to teach her unique weaving technique.
