    Styles 1 & 2 for us! I want to get some braids the length and thickness of Solange’s but they look heavy 🙁

      That length will probably be a little heavier but you have the thickness to support it so it should be fine. Then again it may not be so bad as mine are not heavy at all 🙂

    hmm my hair is thin, but I still will like to get the braids just not that long as Solonge, maybe bra strap

      Bra strap will work just try not to make them too thick so they won’t be too heavy

    I haven’t gotten braids in over 10 years. My hair is pretty long(bra strap) and I want to get the twist. Not as long as Solange, but maybe to my lower back. I worried of braking my hair and the weight.

      Since your hair is so long it should be able to handle the weight if it is is healthy. Just keep it moisturized and keep the braids fresh, don’t allow them to hang!

        I wonder if you can share some nice creative ways to wear the long twist so that it isn’t worn down and hang too long.Thank you

      Those are twists. You can start like a braid then twist or start as a twist from the root.
