Tips for a long high braid with hair extensions. Long hair continues to be trendy, at least for all women who like to emphasize their femininity. However, those who were not naturally endowed with thick and full hair, but rather have fine hair, often do not enjoy growing their hair extremely long in a natural way. This is exactly where many women, including myself, resort to a little help – hair extensions, hair extensions and hair thickening.
I regularly have new hair extension extensions put in at my trusted salon at Melina Best Friseure in Cologne. Melina uses tapes for inconspicuous hair extensions and hair thickening, which are worked into the hair for several months and thus ensure a permanently beautiful and well-groomed hair appearance.
Again and again I get questions about my extensions, when I consciously show in my social media networks that I have a hair extension, because you hardly suspect it if you do not know. For me, this is exactly one of the reasons why I love going to Melina and her team at Barbarossaplatz. I am convinced here by the extremely high quality hair, the professional insertion through years of experience and specialization in extensions, as well as the super pleasant and natural climate at Melina and her team.
Long and high braid with hair extensions
A question that I am asked again and again has been increasing lately: Can you wear a high braid with extensions? Due to stars like Ariana Grande, who is known for her long and high braid, the question arises whether it is also possible to wear a high braid with the tape extensions without the joints being visible. How do you do a braid with extensions?
Yes, it is clearly possible, however, there are a few things to keep in mind when doing a high braid with extensions that I would like to answer for you in a little more detail.
No matter if you have extensions with bondings or tapes, it is possible to wear a high or even deep braid. However, it is up to the placement of the extensions whether you will see it later or not. Please mention it before the placement that you like to wear a braid from time to time, e.g. for sports.
Especially with a high braid, it is best to throw the hair over head and then comb it down. Take the hair now together and look again normally in the mirror, whether it fits visually so and knot the hair now with a braid rubber. The tape extensions remain invisible when they are completely folded down and covered by the lower top hair.
It is also important to use the right braid elastic. Depending on the amount of hair, you have to test through a few different variations here. It must be tight, but also have enough tension, otherwise the braid slips down again immediately. You can’t use the currently so popular Invisibobbles for this effect at all.
You should wear this type of high braid only about twice a week, because the pressure on the hair roots is enormous with this hairstyle. If you wear the braid too often with extensions, the hair can break or even fall out. So the pulling force on the extensions is not the biggest problem here.
I personally like to wear a deep braid when I want to tie my hair away once as a braid at extensions. I also wear a loose deep braid for sleeping. However, there are also outfits and stylings with me, where I then like to combine a high braid with extensions to it. In some looks it is the last icing on the cake to give the look a special freshness.
Another personal tip for those who have less dense hair at the temples or on the forehead when they tie a braid with extensions: you can simply use some attachment concealer spray for the slightly balder areas to fill in the visible gaps slightly visually.
Conclusion – braid with hair extensions and false hair
I hope my tips and explanations about the braid with extensions have helped you, but I can tell you, who has good extensions, who prefers to wear his hair open. Whether curly or straightened, beautiful long hair often completes the outfit and style.
Many thanks at this point also to Melina Best and her team for the tips that she could also give me for my high braid with extensions. You can just tell that the team has fun with long hair and has gained extremely reliable experience over time.
