Medium sized braids with shaved sides

20150329-161708.jpg

This young lad has set a new trend with braids ..who would have thought!
The braids suited his edgy/ arty style and the shaved sides allowed the style to look stylish as opposed to feminine.
If you are a guy and want a cheaper , quicker alternative to faux locks, then braids may be your answer! For a more masculine result, bigger braids with bigger partings would help you achieve this, and putting it in a bun or ponytail (like shown in the picture) may also reduce the feminine look.

This client who refused to show her gorgeous face requested a style that seems to be quite popular, if you look at my other posts, you’ll see that I have done this style for a few clients.
I consider this style to be so popular because it’s fun, light, bouncy and easy to maintain! It is also easy to cut and style also.

Chest length crochet braids with Marley hair and knotless side parting

20150316-154030.jpg

I must point out that this is the first time I’ve installed the crochet braids using the knotless technique- for a first timer I think I did a pretty good job 😜! The knotless technique is suitable for those who seek a natural look as it creates the illusion that the hair is growing from the scalp. We already know that the Marley hair allows the most styling versatility as the texture and appearance closely matches that of natural Afro textured hair. It can be blow-dried, curled or just left as it is.

Shoulder length tightly curled crochet braids with versatile side and middle parting and blonde highlights

This style required me to focus heavily on cutting and styling. The client initially wanted a long length but decided she did not like the look so I cut and styled it instead! She was pleased with the end result. The layers and blonde highlight add character and compliment the client well.
The side and middle parting also allow styling versatility.
