If you're yearning for a braided style and micro braids aren't tiny enough for you, go the extra mile and opt for invisible braids. Invisible braids are so small that they look like regular strands of hair. Because invisible braids are so minuscule, they offer tons of versatility when it comes to styling. Master a few styles and kick your braided style up a notch.
Incorporate long wavy extensions into your braids for a voluminous look. Fashion just an inch of invisible braids all around your head, then add lots of wavy hair that hangs free. The contrast between the flat braids and the textured extensions conveys movement and style.
If curls aren't your thing, add straight extensions to your braids. Or braid down one inch and let your long hair hang free. Keep your locks sleek and straight by using a flat iron to tame them. Before heat styling, make sure you're using real human hair. Synthetic hair will melt under heat and leave your locks one big mess.
The cool thing about wearing invisible braids is that styling them is super simple. Pull your hair into a basic ponytail for everyday errands. Make your pony instantly elegant by twisting it into a chignon. Use U-shaped bobby pins to secure the bun in place. Take your braids to another level by braiding them again. A French braid, meanwhile, is cute, feminine and easy to do.
Do the Twist
If you want to wear your invisible braids down, add interest around your face. Split your hair into three to four sections going back vertically. Starting at the hairline, twist each section back a few inches. Pin each twist in place at the crown of the head with U-shaped bobby pins.
