No, they do not wear them as frequently; however, certain Hollywood actresses have recently popularized hair extensions for white women. Gwyneth Paltrow wears them. Kate Winslet’s mane of hair in Titanic was all extensions. White women who do get hair extensions usually get them for “instant long hair” and/or to add fullness to fine hair. As for braids, I have known a few “artsy” white women who get braids, but it is quite rare.
