Braid Lovers

 I have been wearing braids since I was a kid in the 90s. I grew up on braids. Its something that was known in my culture. In 2016 its so cool and nice to see all these cool ways to style, and braid. Its also beautiful to see other cultures embrace braids. Its been a up roar in the Kardashians wearing braids. But let me say this, No the Kardashians did not make braids a trend. But Yes they can wear braids if they want. Braids aren't designed for one culture or race. Braids are universal. You rock braids and you look fab doing it ladies. Check out these different styles of braids I know you will love.

                       The Upside Down Braid

The French braiding technique is used here again, except this time, you’re going to do it so that it starts at the nape of your neck and works its way up.

Box Braids/Poetic Justice Braids

Box braids are individual plaits that are usually divided by small squared off parts or boxesBox braids may be of any width or length, but most women add synthetic or natural hair to the braid for length as well as thickness and fullness.

The Crown Braid

crown braid is your best headband. It adds statement texture to your updo that is seen from every side. You may opt for a neat tight braid or go for a chunky and messy fishtail. Both updos and half up styles look stunning with headband braids

Crochet Braids

crochet braids are hair extensions that are literally crocheted into your own hair (braided into cornrows) with a latch hook tool. 


The Fishtail Braid

The technique consists of taking one strand from underneath one of the sections, and passing it over to the other. You repeat this on both sides continuously to get the pattern demonstrated in the picture above. 


The French Braid 

Each time you pass hair over the center strand, you’re going to grab more hair and add it in. That’s why you get that patterned appearance where the hair looks like it’s been pulled from the sides. 


The Dutch Braid

This allows the braid to sit on top of the head, as opposed to weaving in towards the head in an inverted fashion. 


Mico Braids

Micro braids are tiny, delicate braids that are tightly woven into hair, and generally last for several months.
