Pixie Braids are a myriad of tiny braids covering the majority or the entire head of your hair. These fun braids can vary from 6 to 24 inches in length and some stylists singe the ends of the braids to stop them from unraveling. Bulk braiding works great for pixie braids because, in order to have a lot of pixie braids covering your head, bulk braiding allows you the extra hair and volume.

Aren't crochet braids just incredible?! Well, we tend to think so anyway. They're stylish and are a tad more creative than your average braid! Did you know that crochet braids are actually hair extensions that are installed by using a latch tool to crochet them onto cornrows? Pretty cool, huh?

Another braid you must try is a yarn braid. As you can see in the picture above, corn braids look pretty amazing in a big bun and with wavy bulk hair you can create a voluminous hairstyle that'll last all through summer and beyond if you take care of your tresses.
