For an easier variant of the box braids but equally flattering, try braiding large chunks of hair at a time. Similar to your usual style but also subtly different.

Juxtaposed colors are highly rare because a few people can pull it off. Whether you’re going for really dark and really light colors or shades that are close to one another, remember that it’s most important to just wear your hair like you just don’t care!

How would you describe this look?

This look is a convenient low maintenance style yet very stylish. My favorite thing about this style is the endless options of colors as well as styling. The look lasts up the 3 months.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is for busy hard-working women with little time for hair like stay-at-home moms. It’s a great protective style for kids and adults. Remember to oil your scalp regularly, and live your life the best you can.

How would you describe this look?

This look is called the boho braids. I love the curls that are mixed with the braids. The curls give the braids a whole new look that everyone gets excited about.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This style typically lasts 8-10+ weeks, and you don’t have to do too much to this style. It only requires a braiding scarf for coverage at night and a little holding foam from time to time.

How would you describe this look?

This look is bold and beautiful. The color is what makes it bold, but it’s a beautiful protective style that can be worn in many different ways.

Any advice for someone considering it?

I will let my client know that the color will have you standing out (you could do this style in any color). This style can be done on all hair types, but it works best on coarse hair.

This style can take up a while to do depending on the size and length. These blonde braids took me 3.5 hours to complete.

Before starting this style, make sure your hair is moisturized with some type of oil (I used Doo Gro Stimulating oil). This style is great for wanting to get up and go with minimum to no styling and great for vacations and getting your hair wet. This is an overall fun protective style for anyone.
