Half Wig and (Braids) individuals in the Front...
WEll, I decided to post my latest hair style. I am wearing my favorite, Easy Vera - here is the link
But I went to a braider up the street and got individuals put in the front of my hair. The braids are from the ear forward so about 2 inches.
WHy - Just to give my hair a break. I noticed that my edges had thinned a little when I had in my U part wig. I wanted to take a break from the perms and I said...what can I do...
SO....I said just put some braids in the front. Then with my hair in the back, she just did 5 big braids going straight back.
What type of braided hair to buy - I bought human hair and only needed 1 pack and a little of another pack. I used human hair because I wanted the option of being able to curl my hair. I also bought the human hair that had a body curl. Now I'm not talking about wet/ wavy but the human hair that has a body curl or loose curl pattern.
WHy did I need a pack and 1/4 - because I asked the braider to use as much hair as possible for the braids to ENSURE that it would be full enough to cover the wig. I have done this several times and you don't want to get your hair braided to then don't have enough to cover the hump or wig.
What COlor Hair and What COlor Wig - Just make sure they match, I did 1B wig and 1 human hair - in this particular wig the 1B was a little shiney and the 1 human hair matched it better. You have to really take your wig with you when you buy the braiding hair.
How am I wearing my hair:
Well, I have been wearing it pinned up in the top and just hanging in the back. Here is an example -
If the picture does not appear - it is a half up half down hairstyle - You just gather the top and pin it and leave the back curls hanging down.
Hair Accessories - I have just work nice hair clips in the back and glitter hair combs.
What does the hair look like - It looks like a person with styled individuals. Some people might think that it is not fully braided but I like it and I have received a lot of compliments.
At night - I take the half wig off and pin a scarf and bonnet down over my braids.
How Long- I plan to keep it in for at least 4-5 weeks.
