The Tresstastic: Chunky Braids

Screen shot 2012-01-01 at 01.06.52

I’ve been thinking of doing chunky braids for a little while now. Maybe longer than my usual twists and this pic has definitely inspired me to think bigger too!

Amongst many other things, I'm a 30-something contemplative Londoner making the daily commute between contentment and ambition.When not blogging, I'm using my talents for good as communications director at Gingerland and co-founder of Love Harlem.

    Hi, I just discovered your blog and i’m loving it! :)
    This style is beautiful, I would like to do this but my natural hair just isn’t long nor full enough! :(
    I’d like to use extensions to make it, please, what sort of hair/extensions would you recommend?

      Hey Kator, Kanekalon hair works well for this I think. Gives it a nice silky finish :)
