Adding Fake Hair

Neon or natural?

That is the question I ask myself when contemplating adding bobby pin hair extensions into a day hairstyle.

Fringe Braids

There are four kinds of Fringe Braids

Basic: The simplest is the basic fringe. All the hair is incorporated in the form.

Accent: The accented fringe uses strands of hair to add pretty accents to the style.

Cascade: The cascade fringe leaves half the hair down to soften the look.

Accented Cascade: And finally, the accented cascade fringe both leaves half the hair down and adds accents for beauty.

variation 4As you can see the fringe can be created using any number of strands that you desire. Feel free to use any accent on the fringe form when you are accenting. I have yet to use one that does not look good.

Changing up the same hairstyle

Simple ways to change a hairstyle.

Back to School Styles

Need ideas for back to school hairstyles?

Bows are a great way to add that special touch to a school hairstyle, especially when you create the bow with hair adding mystique to the creation of the hairstyle.

back to schoolThe photo depicts a five-strand braid. Use the number of strands you are comfortable using. This would look great with three-strands either dutch or french. Like this one below. It uses three-strand dutch. Instead of ending each braid separate it brings the tails together into a large bow.

bowIf these are too complicated, try something simpler and faster. Braid on each side of the head leaving the back hair down. Add the bow component using a barrette.
