Feed-in braids

Also known as ‘knotless’ braids, feed-in braids are even better for protecting your hair than most other styles. To create super long box braids or cornrows, the stylist will usually secure extensions to your natural hair with a knot. With this technique, the stylist will gradually ‘feed’ the extensions in – plaiting them together with your real locks for a seamless blend. The result? Braids that have less bulk and put less tension on your scalp. They will also flow like real hair, giving you all the extra length you want with a natural finish.

Dutch braid Hair

A Dutch braid is nothing but a French braid done in reverse. This braid look has some great dimension to it because of the way it sits on top of your hair. The Dutch braid can be incorporated in a half up style to give it a flirtatious vibe or styled with a bun to make it work appropriate. All you need is a hair brush and a hair elastic. Start with brushing out all the knots and tangles in your hair. From between your temples, pick up the front section of your hair and divide it into 3 sections. Braid it for one stitch by flipping the side sections under the middle section. In each stitch of braid, start adding hair from outside the braid to the side sections before flipping them under the middle section. Once your Dutch braid has reached the nape of your neck, simply braid the rest of the way down and secure the ends with a hair elastic.
