HOW TO STYLE YOUR BOX BRAIDS.

One of my readers asked me to do a post on how to style long braids.What I love about long braids is they’re easy to style.I’ve had my braids on for 3 weeks now and I’ve started getting bored of them so I looked for ways to style them here are a few ideas ladies. πŸ™‚

1.THE BUN.

This is a simple classy way of wearing your braids.It doesn’t take much time so you’re good to go in no time.You can make the bun anywhere on your head.You can make it at the centre,really low,really high like this or even at the side depending on what you want.

2.IF YOU LIKE IT THEN YOU SHOULDA PUT A HEADBAND ON IT..

I love love love this stuff.Very stylish,easy and functional.I have like a whole collection of alice bands.Though I have to admit they make me lazy to try anything else sometimes because I can just use them ,guilty! πŸ˜€ Here’s me in a bunch of them:

MY MONOCHROME AND I.

This was me in church this Sunday:A black lace croped top,a monochromatic midi pencil skirt and black patent leather heels.A monochromatic object basically is one that’s black and white,so my skirt it monochromatic.A monochromatic look can also have a black top and white bottoms or vice versa.

Chanel has since the beginning of time been predominantly monochrome and I love it because of that classic black and white vibe.Their logo is even black and white!
