Hair Extensions Hack: Kim Kardashian's Method

So one night while getting totally lost in YouTube tutorials, the M+B team stumbled across a makeup tutorial with Kim K and Desi Perkins. Just as we were reaching for Instagram, Kim gave up a huge secret and revealed the key to her changing hair length that is a saviour for short haired gals everywhere. 

To seamlessly transition from blunt bob to hip grazing locks, Kim braids back the hair at the side of her face to avoid any shorter hairs poking out. She braids all the way to the back so that the hair extensions can fall seamlessly and there’s only the shorter pieces at the back to blend. This hack is perfect for anyone with short hair or a blunt haircut and will allow you to go that little bit longer if you want to.

We’ve talked about our hack for tying up the hair at the nape of your neck a million times but this is one step further and would work amazingly well for thick hair. It’s essentially a super skinny dutch braid and might be fiddly at first but so easy with some practice. You want to start by creating a section of hair around your hairline. Just make sure to leave enough hair out at the front to cover it, as Kim has. You can then braid either side back to meet in the middle and secure it with some bobby pins. Once you’ve finished, clip your extensions in as normal and you’re done!
