One of the most popular hairstyle choices for protective styling is Box Braids.  For those who love braids, colourful braided styles are a great way to add versatility to your look without damaging your own hair using harsh chemicals.


I went to a baby shower and saw a lady with  blue box braids.
I immediately fell in love with them and asked her what hair extensions she used, to which she replied X-pressions in the colour Blue. I was in the hair supply shop that weekend, purchased the hair and here we are today writing this blog post with my beautiful blue jumbo box braids which I love love love.

I have had so many compliments about this and I am really glad I took the plunge.

I used the X-pression brand in the colour Deep blue.  It is such a beautiful colour which is subtle, yet noticeable. This style falls perfectly in line with the hair colour trend which is in full swing at the moment.  If you have been thinking about making a bold or subtle hair colour change, summer is the ideal time to freshen up your look.  Trendsetters, celebrities and models have been strutting their colourful hair with blue being my favourite.

The items I used to achieve this look are:

1. 2 packs of X-pression in colour blue

2. Gold thread

3. Hair jewellery
