Thick braids

Not everyone has fabulous, thick locks. Actually, most of us don’t.

A lot of times our clients that come in for up dos tell us they love the inspirations, but that their hair is too fine for the braided look. They usually turn up thin, lacking the visual impact of what they see on the models.

Well, it’s actually surprisingly easy to give your braids a thicker look. All you need to do is to pull the outer sides of the braid to thicken it up, prior to adding your bobby pin or hair band.

We found it on Elizabethany.com, who shared not only how much difference it makes, when you thicken up your braids (called pancaking), versus when you don’t.
