BOX BRAIDS







Braids are very in right now...and I love it! 
There's a dozen reasons why I love braids..its convenient, easy-to-maintain and cost-effective. With the approaching rains, it makes for an even better hairstyle because it requires zero fussing even when beaten by the rain.
But as with every hairstyle, wearing the same look for an extended period of time can get boring and tiring and its no different with braids...well not anymore! Gone are the days when ladies wore their box braids packed in a bun everyday. With celebrities like Beyonce and Solange stepping out in stylish braids, more and more ladies are getting adventurous and trying out various exciting styles. I found a few of such pictures showing several creative ways you can pack your braids and decided to share.
Pull your hair up and off of your neck and back with a giant bun a la <b>Solange</b> . It may take a couple attempts to get everything tucked away neatly. The smaller the braids, the easier it is. Goody headbands are perfect for securing high braided buns.

Channel your inner mermaid with a side swept fishtail braid. Check out the awesome tutorials on the web to easily recreate this style.

Add a pop color your box braids and pin the front to one side for an effortlessly cool look. This is one of our all time favorite ways to wear braids.




I decided to take a break from braids, but this particular do would be up on my head very soon! Love!

Well, here's  Portia in braids...

  2. i love braids, even though i suck at packing it in different styles. The only thing bad about it is ur receding hairline after you loosen it. Most hair braiders think that once the hair is not tight it wont be fine. I always say that i don't think if the hair was that painful oyibo people will be rocking it.
