    You will need to find wigs and hair pieces that suit this short but sassy hairstyle to be able to pull this off and this means you will need to find wigs and hair pieces that are curly and mid length.
  • Goddess Braids – This style uses braided hair extensions to create an illusion of thick, long hair in braids when the person wearing these extensions actually has mid-length hair or thinning hair near the tips.

    Goddess braids are braids that are started at the scalp and continue on down to the very end of the person’s hair. 

You can use extensions to lengthen these braids and to give you the goddess-like long tresses you want.

The extensions you use for this hairstyle can be integrated in the braid in the middle of the braiding process to make them stay securely in the hairstyle.
