NO CROCHET! NO SCISSORS! After some thought and Youtube searching, I figured out a way to make my mid-back length hair into a short length chunky box braids bob and I love it! It was so easy (only took around 3-4 hours) and you don't need anything other than some small elastic bands and kanekalon hair cut to your desired length.
The ombre hair I used is latchedandhooked.com. It's the three tone colour number 53 braiding hair (price $10:99 per packet). I used 1b dark brown kanekalon hair underneath by Dream Girl. Full video tutorial below.
