Waist length medium sized braids

Shown client had never before installed braids so was skeptical as to what the outcome would be.
She wanted the braids to look quite subtle and easy to maintain hence the medium size and waist length.
She loved the end result!

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.

Bottom length medium sized box braids

This client did box braids for the first time and loved the end result! Her hair texture was very soft and silky so I found it more difficult than usual to firmly attach the extension to the root. We got there in the end, and it looks fab on her as you can see! The hair was very full and reached her bottom.
The hair used was expressions in colour 1b.

Bottom length chunky box braids

As opposed to the braids below, these braids are chunkier and slightly long in length which was suitable for the tall client. The chunky braids scream retro and are ideal if you’re going for a funky, 90s look!
The hair used is ‘Xpressions’ in colour 1b.

Hip length medium sized braids

So the braids are back! You can’t go wrong with this classic look, of course braids take a lot longer to install than crochet braids, but the end result is always timeless and neat. The picture is pretty self explanatory, the size is medium (more or less equal to the width of my index finger). The long length increases versatility and styling- as you can see ,the client chose to style hers immediately in the classic half up -half down style.
The brand of hair used was ‘Xpressions’ in colour 4.

Bottom length medium-large sized braids

Here is another illustration of my forte- braids.
I must highlight- these are the longest length I’ve installed on any client thus far. The braids extended to the client’s bottom – which perfectly suited the tall lady, so the braids enhanced and effectively complimented the client’s height (very solangesque).
The partings were very small so to enable the client’s desired ‘full’ and plentiful appearance. Although extremely long, the practical size of the braids allows the hair to be easily manipulated and styled into buns, ponytails or any type of style you desire!
