Get to Braiding
For years, I wondered how every woman on Pinterest and Instagram had braids that rivaled that of Queen Elsa of Arendelle . . . and she created hers using magic. Every time I'd try styling my fine hair, I would get a thin, totally boring braid. Call me naive, but it took me several years of pulling at my braids and pouring in dry shampoo to figure out that the people online had a secret weapon: hair extensions.
Luckily, I got my hands on the Beyond Hair Select Extensions ($349), a 10-piece set of real Remy clip-in extensions. While the method of putting them in took some trial and error, I've worn them multiple times and no one can tell. In fact, it just looks like I'm having a really good hair day. After getting used to them, I started to experiment with different-size wefts (pieces of hair) to bulk up my braid and was super happy with the results.
