Imagine the (styling!) possibilities

 I've been getting a lot of questions about styling NBR. 

  • Can it be pulled back without showing? How high?
  • Do I have to curl NBR?
  • Can I just wear it straight?
  • What about braids, will my extensions show?
  • What products should I use?

Not only can you ponytail your NBR extensions, they give you the BEST ponytail. Topknots, high buns & half-up buns are possible too.

Can NBR be worn straight? Do I HAVE to curl it?

Yes- it still blends beautifully styled straight! The extension hair comes in multiple textures, and all of them can be worn straight if you'd like. If you primarily style straight and your hair is naturally smooth, I recommend wearing Silky Straight extensions instead of body or beach waved.

You don't have to curl it. However- if you're going from short to super long, however, you may want to wear your hair slightly waved to help blend as your hair grows out.

 Braids! Yes!!

Can I braid my hair with NBR? Absolutely! I love sleeping in braids and pulling my hair back with braids because it's not only cute, but it helps keep a pretty wave in your hair, which extends how many days you can wear your style. NOTHING will show, even if you wear 2 French braids straight down the back of your hair. 

I LOVE how you can take a basic braid and fluff it up a bit. NBR gives you the DENSITY that makes braids look next-level & Pinterest-worthy.

 One of my favorite, easy ways to sass up an easy summer style- silk scarves. Make sure they're real silk- it grips and makes a much more secure knot than synthetic fabric.
