@pinkvalenciaga_ // X-Pression Cuevana Bounce
Go bold with bouncy twist out curls. Pre-curled and ready-to-wear, spend less time curling each individual strand, and more time letting your curls bounce to the beat of the music. PRO TIP: Accessorize with scarves to style up your hair, AND protect it from the elements. @kymberlibrenzell // X-Pression Cuevana Bounce
Lightweight, yet voluminous, this style is big, but still breathable and airy. Perfect for fun in the hot sun at every outdoor festival you will be attending.
PRO TIP: When installing these crochet braids, be sure to use the brick layering method to create space between each strand so that the hair lays flat, and for extra breathability.
