Shoulder length Marley textured crochet braids with versatile middle or side parting

This would be the first time I’ve installed crochet braids like these. The client’s plan was to blowdry and curl the hair after installation. I think that’s what’s so great about Marley hair- although it’s synthetic- it can be manipulated and curled!
I tried a new braid pattern that could allow for a versatile middle or side parting. I quite liked the result so think I’ll stick to this braid pattern.
I liked this big Afro look, but once the hair has been curled/ blowdried, the volume will decrease a significant amount.

Waist length medium sized box braids

I initially thought this installation would be difficult and time consuming as I have never installed braids on Caucasian hair.
The client had very short hair at the back as a result of a recent haircut. The back was the hardest to attach to the braids as it was extremely short and the texture was very silky.
However, as a whole, her hair was quite easy to do, I just had to ensure I held a tighter grip when braiding. The time length was 6 hours.

Shoulder length loosely curled crochet braids

This client requested for the braids to be installed in such a way to allow a versatile parting. Although very good quality, the hair used ( freetress) was very light and thin, and so I had to use a lot more hair than expected to prevent a sparse and empty look.
The light and loose texture of the curls allows for a stress free and carefree look.

Waist length curly crochet braids with blonde highlights

This client requested for her crochet braids to not be too full, so I put less hair than I usually would.
She also requested blonde highlights which I thought gave the hair some character.
The hair used is by freetress, and the curls were a loose soft curl.
