What are the most popular braid hairstyles?

  1. Ghana braids / Cornrows – both are an African style of braiding. This braiding technique is quite easy, and the braids go down the back of your head, along your scalp. The main difference between the two is that cornrows are usually made on natural hair and are quite flat. Ghana braids, on the other hand, are made with weave or extensions, making the braids larger.
  2. Box braids – another African style of braiding. They are characterised by the square shaped hair divisions. Extensions and weave is also used with them.
  3. Crochet braids / Latch hook braids – yet another African style of braiding, which has been very modernised lately. Crochet braids are created when after the hair has been braided into cornrows, hair extensions are attached to it with a latch hook or a crochet hook.
  4. French braid – another braiding style which originated in Africa. The French braid is probably the most popular out of all the braiding styles. It is very easy to do yourself and doesn’t take a lot of time. Three strands of hair are braided together from the crown of the head to the nape of the neck.
