The hottest style this side of summer is hands down braid-in hair extensions! For the best inspo out there, we spoke to Michelle Marshall, British international Redken artist, revealing her 3 favourite ways to wear this look. You know what they say, if you can’t beat them, braid them!


Look 1: Double Dutch braid-in hair extensions

For something of a statement, we’re big fans of this double Dutch braid style with colorful braid in hair extensions! “I love the more traditional Dutch braids in a single or double Dutch design. It’s great with multiple rainbow extensions to make a strong festival statement,” says Marshall. And the best part is, “braids are easily changeable with less commitment, making it a fun way to dress up your look!” the pro explains. Changing up your look is now easy as pie!

Look 2: ponytail braid in hair extensions

We love the statement-making bold colour and the style of this sporty ponytail! For tips on how you do braid in hair extensions, book an appointment at your salon ASAP. Here, your stylist can provide you with useful tips on how to make this look last. In the meantime, take heed of this useful tip: “A good dry shampoo does the trick to elongate the style. I would recommend Redken Redken Pillow Proof Blow Dry Two Day Extender Dry Shampoo for optimal wearability,” suggests Marshall. This will keep your braided ponytail looking fresh all day long!

Look 3: braid-in hair extensions bun

Spruce up your bun by adding braid-in hair extensions for a statement-making look! This eye-catching high bun is the perfect way to keep your hair off your face, while still looking stylish. So even if your hair is naturally short, “colourful braids with extensions can be used to add length for a seamless finish,” explains Marshall. This is the perfect way to add a pop of colour to any style, without the commitment, ideal for the girl who loves to change up her look.

Braid-in hair extensions have arrived just in time for spring and summer - try them now!
