Drama-free braiding for kids.
Step-by-step, here are the products you need to care for your natural hair as you grow that awesome afro.
Looking for a simple yet stylish answer to your hairstyle in the upcoming summer months? With the sweltering heat well on its way, braids are here to save the day! They are a low-maintenance option for styling your hair for months at a time, but with so many braid hairstyles at your fingertips, how does a girl choose?
Some of the most popular hairstyles for natural hair at the moment include the low braided bun for chic elegance; twist rope braids, ideal for thick, unruly hair; and wrap-around braids with twists for a beautiful feminine feel. No matter your personal style, there’s a range of black hair braids to have you set for summer...
The braided ponytail is perfect for a little summer sass, styled with feed-in braids which are pulled back into a mid-height or high ponytail, depending on your preference. The smaller braids of the ponytail are ideal because they won’t weigh your head down and work to protect the ends of your hair. This cornrow method also pulls on your edges for that sleek, snatched look. Visit your nearest salon to ensure your cornrows are on point.
Seeing as ‘90s style has done a full circle and come back into fashion this year, the iconic Poetic Justice braids, made popular by the movie of the same name, are bang on trend for summer. This is a fun and flirty look for anyone in their mid-20s or 30s.
Finally, you can never go wrong with long, luscious and free-flowing braids – a signature look for many African women. The braids can be split into various types, including twist braids, locks or box braids. Plus, you can get creative and add coloured braids into the mix for some distinctive flair.
