This hairstyle looks intricate, yet consists of simple 2 french braids put together with a hair accessory. Missy also added a few wefts of her clip-in Dirty Blonde Luxy Hair extensions for extra length and volume – this is, of course, optional – but hair extensions make this hairstyle so much more dramatic because of that extra ‘oomph’.
