How to wear day-to-day.
Our advice is to keep the hairstyle itself. The African braid may seem complicated to novices, however is simple once you get the hang of the technique. Simply ask your best friend for a helping hand so that you can create a look that will open up your face and highlight your features. In terms of color, you’ll need a strong dose of confidence to pull off the neon touch. If you’re thinking about coloring your hair to achieve this effect, remember that harsh colors can damage your locks
and require lots of upkeep. Create the look.
Recreate this look for yourself by using hair chalks or clip-in extensions in bright shades to add a splash of color. Next, you can start braiding your lengths. Take a large section from the very top of your head and separate into three equal sections. Keep two sections in one hand and the third in the other. Start as if you were braiding your hair normally, then incorporate outer sections of hair into your 3 main strands. Repeat this process by crossing your outer sections over the centre piece, and vice versa. Make sure you braid all of your lengths into the braid, then secure with a hair tie of your choice
