STYLE TIPS: Styling Marley Braids

In case you were wondering, I am still enjoying my extensions. It was my first time getting extensions, but I've quickly gotten used to having this extra hair on my head. But, as with my own hair, I can't wear the same style day in and day out. It has been a month since I had them installed, but here are a few styles I've worn in the last 2 weeks.

Now... all I did for this style was braid my twists into chunky braids. I felt very hippie, free-spirited, and earth toned. Then I thought JANET! Yes. Janet became my hairspiration. The photo above is from her video  You Want This. I spent the rest of the day dancing to All For You.

It's pretty simple to take chunky braids and roll them into a messy bun. Later in the day I tucked the ends for a more structured look.

So... I'm all for simplicity. There's not a lot to explain about these photos. Here I twisted two front twists, leaving them open at the ends. I brought one twist over, and combined all the hair into a side braid. Simple, summery style.

And finally, if you take those same chunky braided twists from the first photo and CAREFULLY dip them in   nearly boiling water for about 10-15 seconds and allow them to dry, you get this crimped look. A lot more pizzazz than straight hair. 

Don't let boredom sneak up on you. Enjoy your hair. All of these are super simple, right? What do you think? Let me know in the comments below.
