You can never go wrong with braids. Year by year they do not go out of fashion with really creative braid styles coming up. Among them is the latest stitch braids. This hairstyle is unique. It is often confused for Ghana weaving but on a closer look, you will notice that there is no visible extension joining like the regular Ghana weaving. Also, another visible difference is several tiny stitches in this style.
This is a trending style for naturalist’s; it is achieved by basically twisting each plait. It suits to anyone irrespective of any type of facial complexion and hair texture. Flat twists are a great matter of choice when it comes to styling your hair in an iconic way and making it seem quite trendy. Flat twist can be done in a very good or a natural hair salon. Extensions can be used on it; preferably Marley twist or kinky twist extension to give a natural look.
Spring twists are braiding hair extensions used for very light and bouncy twists. They can also be installed crochet. They blend well with kinky and relaxed textures. Each pack is 110g. Use 2 to 6 packs depending on the exact look you want to achieve.

Used not just as a protective style, faux locks helps in hair growth, especially for the natural hair folks. It takes a lot to maintain this style especially if it is being considered to be worn long term. The stylist takes up to 4 hours to install this style with regard to how long it would be worn.

Wigs have also become really trendy in the Nigerian fashion market. Comfortable, affordable and stress-free, wigs save most Nigerian women the stress of visiting the salon. Whether made into braids or with the extensions even as Ghana weavings, wigs helps to keep the natural hair aerated and prevents itching.
