Classic box braid are one of the most iconic styles for Afro-textured hair. All your hair will be sectioned into squares and worked into individual plaits to get this look. You can use your hair or have extension braided in, which will give you head-turning long, full locks. They are considered a protective style and can be any length or thickness; however, if you have naturally thin or fine hair, opt for smaller box braids, so there’s less tension on your scalp. While box braids take a long time to put in, once finished they last for weeks and are very low-maintenance
A timeless and feminine style, the french braid is a classic for a reason. You can wear this versatile braid for a casual brunch, the gym or the office. Keep it super smooth for a more professional braid, or pull a few face-framing pieces out for a soft and romantic vibe. You can also team it with a fishtail braid or half-up, half-down style, and French braids are also a popular hairstyle for wedding guests. Whatever the occasion, a French braid is a perfect choice.
If you’re looking for a new way to style your braids, the simplest option is a high ponytail.
The style is popular because it draws the eye up, making your face seem longer. It’s also versatile, working equally well for the office, school, gym or a date night. To make your braided ponytail look perfectly polished, secure it with a clear snag-free elastic and wrap some of your braids around to cover it. Finally, add hair accessories for some extra personality.
