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.

Box braids styling options

I always claim how versatile styling options are for box braids but never prove it, so this is what the purpose of this post is.
These are just a few of the possible styles that can be done, there are many more.
The first style is the popular half up down style which I did by taking a section of braids from the top and wrapping two braids around the rest to secure it.
The second style is similar to the first, except I twisted all the hair around itself to create a bun, this style is a lot more stylish and trendy.
The third funky style is a high side ponytail which I achieved simply by holding all the braids towards the top side of her head, I then took two braids and wrapped them around the rest to secure it. This style is great if you want to stand out at a party or event!
The last style is the classic bun which is suitable for the lazy days or if you desire simplicity. To achieve this look, I followed the same steps as the second post, except I twisted all the braids around itself then secured with a hairband.

waist length extra chunky box braids

After seeing my ‘lazy’ braids, my sister requested to have them done also. It took 3 hours to install just like mine. The braids were also extra chunky with chunky partings to emphasise the cleopatra, poetic justice look.
The long length increases styling versatility and looks very trendy.

Shoulder length loosely curled crochet braids

This client chose loose curls as she preferred something simple yet still professional enough for her working environment.
TIP: when choosing to do loose curls, ensure to buy a texture which is not silky or it has a high chance of falling out! If you do choose to use silky hair however, ensure you install very tiny sections -that way the knots will be more secure.

Waist length medium sized braids

20150403-203849.jpg

This client requested a simple, easy to maintain style which is why I did the braids at a reasonable size and avoided making it too full.
The braids are versatile and can be styled in a variety of ways.
