Shoulder length knotless 4 way part vixen crochet braids with leave out and Marley hair 

  
Similar to my Previous post, this client did the 4 way part vixen crochet braids but left additional leave out to enhance the natural look.

To help your hair texture to blend with the Marley hair even more, you could blow dry it or use gel but your hair generally tends to somewhat ‘mould ‘ in with the Marley as time goes on.

Chest length Afro curly crochet braids with side and middle invisible partings and perimeter leave out

    
The brand of hair used for this style is ‘noir’ Marley hair, it enables more of an Afro curly look, as opposed to the coarse Afro textured look.

The leave out increases styling versatility and the invisible Partings create the illusion that the hair is growing from the scalp.

Crochet braids invisible partings

  
This post is simply to show the comparison between crochet braids invisible partings. The image on the left shows an invisible parting done with human hair and the other image shows the parting done with synthetic hair. 

Generally I won’t do a full head of crochet with human hair because it sheds a lot and results in a very sparse and empty look. This client requested to have just her parting crocheted so she could do a weave install on the rest of the head.

If the hair is too silky, I tend to not agree to do invisible parts as the knots are likely to come loose, but as you can see invisible partings generally enable a more ‘natural look’.

Waist length white blonde small sized box braids 

  
Similar to the previous client, this lovely lady also decided to try a daring white blonde colour to match her white blonde hair- very Christina aguilera ‘genie in a bottle’. Although she also had a shaved back, this was a very small section, so the combination of her silky textured hair, and the small sized braids resulted in a 6 hour installation time.
