Braiding has long been a tradition in the Black community as well as a bonding experience between mothers, sisters and cousins. Braiding takes time and it often hurts, but the end result is worth it. African braiding styles are very unique and creative. They can be styled in various ways, you can experiment with different colours without the commitment of dying your own hair.
Braids can be styled with headbands, barrettes, turbans and so on. They will help protect your hair from the environment and help you forget about hair styling for months while looking fabulous. Fashion Designers such as Rachel Zoe, Rebecca Minkoff, Kenneth Cole have incorporated African braiding styles to their fashion campaigns. Braids are in and are here to stay. Check out any of these styles and try it on this weekend
