Are you tired of your usual bun or beanie over braids? Here are four fun styles to keep your ends protected during the harsh, cold weather:
1. Faux French Braid on Mini-twists
This style gives the illusion of length while protecting the ends of your strands. All you need is one pack of hair extensions that resemble your texture (e.g., Marley braid hair). The style can be modified for much shorter strands.
2. Twisted Elegance
This style is great for those who love flat twists with a taste of elegance. You will need a comb for neat parting, enough hair for twisting, and … well, flat twisting skills. No need to worry if you don’t know how to flat twist; this lady has a step-by-step tutorial for beginners on her channel.
3. Versatile Box Braid Extensions
Braid (or twist) extensions are a popular go-to protective style this year. However, if you’re tired of the classic braids-in-a-bun, this tutorial will give you a few more styles to try. It showcases some cute updos as well as a spin on the classic bun.
4. Elegant Natural Pin-up on a Twist Out
If you do not want to let go of your twist outs or braid outs, try this style to protect your ends. You will need a few bobby pins and enough hair to work into an updo.
