Woman wearing a weave in front of non-mahrams

Q: A weave is a hairstyle created by weaving pieces of real or artificial hair into a person's existing hair, typically in order to increase its length or thickness. Is it permissible for a woman to cover her own hair in front of non mahram men by wearing a weave?

A: It is not permissible.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
