o Hair historians, such as Lori L. Tharps and Ayana D. Byrd, state that in 1950, an Ohio housewife and hairdresser named Christina Jenkins invented hair weaves and patented her unique hair weaving technique. Jenkins, the wife of a jazz musician, thought 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.
