    O my goodness! It is so pretty. I would definitely try this if my hair was long enough. Makes me regret cutting it!

  • Fishtails are so hard for me, but this is so gorgeous that I am going to force myself to learn 🙂

    Hey Abby!

    I’m curious with your extensions – is your hair color natural or do you color it? I know typically people get extensions matched to their hair color so I’m curious to know if you have to upkeep the color regularly or if it’s all natural.

    Love your styles!

    Please tell me more about how you incorporate your extensions. I just bought some extensions but I have a hard time hiding the clips and making it look natural. Which weft (how many clips) do you use and where do you put them in?

    Love this braid style!!! What is the name of the song in the video?

    In your tutorials, you’re always talking about how you hardly ever wash your hair. Do you just shower without shampooing, or do you cover the hair? I didn’t see another video with more details about not washing hair.
