Shoulder length tightly curled crochet braids with invisible side parting

20150413-160531.jpg

Although these kind of curls have the tendency to produce a lot of volume rather quickly , this client wanted a very tame look, so I put less hair at the back, and filled it up towards the front.
Both the client and I were pleased with the cute, finished look.
The invisible parting is great if you’re seeking a more natural look also.

Shoulder length vixen crochet braids with Marley hair and versatile 4 way parting

20150406-191746.jpg

Having installed this the first time, I found the process quite simple and quicker than the usual crochet braids.
For those who are unaware – the ‘vixen’ term refers to when the hair can be parted 4 ways from the centre of the head. Hair is left out around the perimeter and around each quarter of the head to create a natural look. As a result, styling is more than versatile as the client can now achieve half up half down styles, a ponytail, or even the fishbone style.

Shoulder length ringlet curl crochet braids in a ponytail

This post was simply to show the styling versatility crochet braids have. Although very simple and basic, the classic ponytail is suitable for work, everyday wear or even for a night out! The curls also give the ponytail some character and volume.
Hair used: cherish- Spanish curl

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.

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.

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.
