Additionally, updo braiding can add volume and fullness at the top of the head, further enhancing the overall shape and structure of the hairstyle.

This is especially useful for individuals with fine or thin hair who want their braids to look thicker and more substantial. Additionally, large rollers can also help set the hair and give it a slight wave or curl, adding more dimension to the braided style.
