Long Braided Hairstyles Using Extensions

Braided hairstyles are always in during the summer months, especially if it's protective braided hairstyles. You’ve probably seen celebrities like Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Kim Kardashian, and so many more sporting braided hairstyles for years! We wanted to keep up with the trend and we are now offering braiding services at our salon in the Bay Area!

Three of our models wanted to show off a new hairstyle for an event coming up or something they have longed to try. Alba, our celebrity stylist, was more than happy to help achieve the looks these women were looking for! She used bulk hair for braiding, and other types of Remy hair extensions to achieve these killer looks.


Jumbo Boho Box Braids

Box braids are a staple for protective hairstyles for the summer. Journie has always wanted to get box braids professionally done. She didn’t want to go for the traditional box braids, she wanted to try bohemian jumbo box braids. With this look, Alba braided her hair with our wavy bulk hair in 22” inches, about 5-6 bundles. Then using the 12” curly bulk hair, she crocheted them into the braids and knotted them so they can give that messy boho look. Journie is looking like a brand new woman with her new do and she is loving it!

Feed-In Low Ponytails

If you don’t want to fully commit to the protective braided hairstyles, you can also do feed in low ponytails. Davy wanted to prepare for her birthday celebration with a new hairstyle! She wanted to do feed in low ponytails with curly hair for a more volumized lengthy approach. To add length to the braids, Alba used some of our tight curly weft hair.  She put the braids in a small bun, and secured the weft with bobby pins! With all of that done, Davy is ready to celebrate her birthday in style!

Braided Half Ponytail

This hairstyle will definitely give you summer vibes! Brittni has plans this summer to go to Hawaii, and what better way to go on vacation than with a new cute look! Alba braided the top of her head and put half of the hair into a ponytail. To add in extra volume, she added in our clip-in set. To take it to the max, she crimped the hair and teased it a little bit to give a fuller look. She also added length to the top half of the hair and wrapped one of the clip-ins to cover the elastic hair tie. Brittni is now ready to drink Pina Coladas and layout on the beaches of Hawaii!
