Long hair, don’t care!
The magic of textured hair lies in its versatility. Whether it’s curly, kinky or coiled, manipulating each strand into literally any style is possible, thanks to its ability to withstand all kinds of styling methods.
Statement-making hair is always on trend and as of late, we’re googly-eyed over waist length braids. Celebrities like Beyoncé and Justine Skye are kicking off spring in the standout look and now we’re inspired to do the same!
