Here we have a bold and dramatic hairstyle built on a long layered cut. The hair is likely naturally straight, but styled anyway to enhance
the straightness and structure of the cut and style.
The blown-out and ironed-smooth locks are enhanced and adorned by and with micro-braid extensions that hang on either side of the face,
anchored in the hair to either side of the central parting.
This technique of applying extension hair is a great way to introduce a touch of color and pizzazz into an otherwise hard to color hairstyle. It is
certainly a healthy alternative to trying to lighten the naturally black hair to the level of color necessary to achieve the blonde color shown.
