Ha! Weave puns never get old to me.
Happy Friday fellow weave enthusiasts. Can I say everytime I see last weeks post - Project Concern I still laugh a little. Ok, on to new weave. This first weave above came to me from my friend Jack this morning. He found in on a construction site near 16th and Valencia in San Francisco. You can clearly see the tracks on this weave. And this is always a personal favorite. That means that weave was not in tight. Weave needs to be in tight I am talking Beyonce - Lose My Breath tight.
Or that means that someone was walking home with fresh weave to get their hair did and this fell out of the bag. Which is sad cause that is a waste of money and good weave. The last option means that someone was working at the construction site and something snagged and pulled that weave right off their head. And to that I say OUCH.
This next weave was sent to me via text from my favorite cousin Jessica. My Uncle sent it to her and wanted to make sure that I saw it. It was the 1st weave he has seen. And it was on the corner of Silver Ave and San Bruno in the city. I think my favorite thing about your 1st weave spotting is that you suddenly become more apparent of weave and you will now see it everywhere. TRUST!
I can't really tell what is going here with this weave. It is a whole mess of weave and it looks like it was rained on. So I guess it is sorta like a weave puddle. Watch your step, you don't want to get your shoes weaved.

PROJECT CONCERN: http://sandrarose.com/2009/11/19/who-knew-they-made-lacefronts-wigs-for-babies/
This story was sent to me by a couple of friends (Thanks Matt and Maria). This woman felt that her baby should be glamorous like Beyonce. UM I have seen images as Beyonce as child and you know Tina did not put her baby in weave. Well, until she was old enough to perform and start making her money. But that is another story.
This is just so wrong. Babies are not supposed to have hair this long. What if she feel asleep and started choking on it. I really hope this is fake. You know I love me some good weave here and there. But this just crosses a line. CPS should be on alert. What are your thoughts on this? Discuss.

WOW so it has been over a month since my last post. For that I fail. So today I am giving you too much weave to handle. First this weave was emailed to me today from my friend Michael. He saw this by Best Buy in San Francisco on his way to work. There is certainly more than just weave going on here. I am wondering if the weave was outside of the box and maybe someone grabbed it out and realized it was not their color. Or maybe it was blowing by like a tumbleweave and it got caught up with all this trash. Either was I love that Michael sent it in.
Next we have this video that is a few weeks old. It has been circulating the Internet for a bit now. I have seen it a dozen times. But my dear friend Cecilio emailed it to me at email@example.com and I realized I had to share
This queen had just won some gay title in Brazil. I think I don't understand what they are saying. And in an interview after she/he had won this other queen comes up and snatches her crown and weave all at once. It is kind of amazing. And is it me or does the jealous snatching queen look like Shannel from from RuPaul's Drag Race?
Next I would like to give snaps to Shelly. She sent me a text on Sunday that she had seen 2 weaves on the street on Sunday but could not stop and take a picture. I do love that when you think of weave you think of me. And I am also ashamed to admit. But sometimes I am so busy I don't have time to stop and smell the fresh weave and get a pic of all the weave I see.
Lastly, a reader of this blog (and I just thought my friends read this) sent in a link to his flickr gallery that features all the weave he sees in West Oakland. Thank you Brian. There certainly is a LOT of tumbleweave in West Oakland:
I think I may have to go there for a scouting trip.

.........You think of me. Now that I am back to blogging more weaves. I am flattered that people think of me when they see hair weave. Or even in this case a wig. An old friend of mine, Rashelle was in Lisbon and saw this gem at an outdoor flea market. I have to state that this is a wig and not a weave. But I still love that she saw this, thought of me, and then took a picture and sent to me. I had to share. It's not so much a lost weave but a weave for sale. And Girl let me tell you I am not buying some used wig. But hey someone might. Happy Weavesday!

This here weave comes in all the way from Crown Heights in Brooklyn. Thank you Kathleen I can say that this is def. worth a five. Kudos to you and Lyndsey for spotting this gem. It could have almost been missed with all the leave tangled around it. If the wind would have picked this up it would have def been a tumble weave.

I received this weave over the weekend from my friend AJ. With the caption should this weave get a ticket? While most of it is in the green zone some is in the red. So I say no ticket. But I have to say this is a nice hunk of weave. There is def a few braids in there. I wonder if this weave was pulled out cause it got caught in someones door? HMMM...weave for thought.

So this weave brings up a good question. Is this actually weave?
This weave comes from my friend Shelly. She spotted it by here office on 9th St. in San Francisco. In the email she sent it in she said she was not sure if it was weave or not. I am going with yes. I have seen enough hair weave in my day to know what is and isn't. But sometimes it can be a rope untangled, or a tangled hair net. And you know what I am not going to be the person who touches to try and find out what it actually is.

So I promised my sister Lyndses last week that I would post 2 weaves a week. EPIC FAIL on my part. So today I am posting 3 weaves. 1 to make up for only one posting last week and 2 for this week. I know it's UnbWEAVEable. Lyndses promises to keep me in weave she says there is so many in her hood. This first weave comes from the East Village on W. 4th and Bowery. I actually can't tell if that is some lost weave or a dead cat. You be the judge.
This next weave comes from her hood - Crown Heights in Brooklyn. One thing you should know about Lyndses is that she is a photographer. And it shows in this picture. When I catch weave I am just about getting the weave. She has caught the whole scene here. This weave is telling a story. Clearly it's garbage day. Was this weave in the trash and fell out? It is one of those things that make you go hmmmm
This weave comes from me. I found this at the Castro Muni station while waiting for the train a few weeks ago. I always love when I spot a weave. This was one of those awkward situations when people were walking up and I was trying to snap the shot without looking weird. I am sure I failed.
Lastly, Stephen last week started punning with the word weave. Well, you know I am a fan of that. Hence the title of today's post It's UnbWEAVEable. Here are a few more he came up with. If you can achieve it, weave it and Weave me alone.
Can you think of any? Comment. Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will post them on here.

So this weave comes to me from my friend Lauren L. She sent this to me on Saturday night. Which leads me to believe she saw this in our around work. She works at a restaurant neat Union Square in San Francisco. What really stands out about this weave is the track. You can actually see the track. This more than just a random piece of weave that fell out. This is the whole line. WOW!!! Whoever did this girls hair seriously F'd up. It's also at night. So she lost this on the way to the club. That sucks. That would so ruin my night.
I also want to share a movie dedicated to hair weave:
Chris Rock made this movie about all the money and pain that is in the hair weave business. I am going to this opening night. I can't wait. EVERYONE SEE IT! Who knew it was that tough to get good hair. I wish I could say I feel their pain. But as a man I don't. I just respect and appreciate it.

This here weave comes from Harlem. Spotted by my dearest Kateri on 127th and Lenox.
You know it is fall when the leaves start gather on the ground and in Harlem so does the weave. I love the leaf is tangled up in the weave. Seasons change and apparently so do hairstyles. This weave is even a fall like color. I love the curl. I am kinda sad for whoever lost this cause her hair must have been fierce.
p.s. I spent the morning back logging weave images. I should have enough to get me through a few months. If I commit to 1 post a week. So keep spotting weave spotters and send that weave to email@example.com.

First I just have to say this is an exciting post for me. Most of the weave findings come from my own personal weave encounters or they are sent to me from a friend (who usually sends it to my personal email or cell). But today this weave comes to us from a reader. A Randomweaves first. I checked the hotmail account this morning and there was an email from a gal named Kerri. So thank you Kerri for the share.
This was taken in front of a Walmart (CLASSIC). Maybe the person who lost this weave was on the way in to get some new weave: http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_constraint=0&ic=48_0&search_query=hair+weave&Find.x=0&Find.y=0&Find=Find. Oh yes some Walmart locations carry hair weave. Well whatever the case I love how this is all caught up in the wheel of a Walmart shopping cart.

This weave comes to us all the way from New York City. Spotted in the West Village by my friend Rachel (sent by way of Lauren). That is a whole lotta weave to have lost. I Maybe this is from Tyra when she shed her weave to go natural. Who knows.
P.S. this morning I was running late to work (thanks muni) and I was walking to the office and I spotted a weave on the ground. I didn't have time to stop and take a pic. Sorta sad. Keep sending me weave pics y'all: firstname.lastname@example.org

Greetings Fellow Weave Enthusiasts,
I realize it has been over 2 years since my last post. And I still get pics sent to me from friends all over the place. And of course I still always stop and take pics when I do see a weave. I am sorry for my absence. I am going to try to be a bit more consistent. But after checking my email this morning I found an email from my friend Kevin. He came across this beautiful weave. You can tell that after falling out of the owners hair the braid itself became unraveled. This is a perfect example of a tumble weave.
Now with today's post I am going to make a commitment of updating at least once a week. I hope you all continue to enjoy. And as always if you find a weave please send them to email@example.com
