Medium sized braids with shaved sides

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.

The braids are back! The style is pretty self explanatory. We achieved a classic poetic justicesque look through waist length chunky braids. These braids are perfect for styling versatility or if you need to protect your natural hair!

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.

Hip length chunky braids

This particular client desired long braids but did notwant the heavy feeling that usually accompanies these type of braids. She requested for the hair to not be too full either, so to grant her request, I did bigger partings but made the braids large enough to prevent a sparse look.

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.
