The Evolution of Braids

Protective styles have come a long way! Gone are the days of plain, straight braids and cornrows. Protective hairstyles have become a way for individuals to express themselves and not just about practicality. In this blog, we will take a dive into the trendiest braids and cornrow styles that have taken this summer by storm.

Heart Cornrows

Love is in the hair! This braiding style intricately incorporates a heart in the cornrow pattern. These braids can be done in various hairstyles like cornrows and lemonade braids, adding a special touch to your look.

Mermaid Braids

Remember the wavy pick-and-drop braids from the 2000s? They're back, revamped and better than ever! In this style, the first half of the hair is braided, while the ends are waved and flow freely.

French Curl

Voluminous, bouncy, and utterly chic – that's the essence of the French Curl. By incorporating pre- curled extensions into your braids, you can achieve a dynamic and lively curl at the ends that oozes charisma.

Peekaboo braids are a fun way to inject a pop of colour into your braids. These braids take a section of braids that have a contrasting colour to the rest of the hairstyle. This section can be hidden or on show! How you want to slay this style is up to you.

Flip Over Fulani Braids

This latest trend is going viral on social media platforms. Flip-over Fulani braids offer a fresh twist on a classic technique. A blend of knotless braids and cornrows, allows you to wear your cornrows in different ways, making the style more versatile than traditional straight-back cornrows.

Bubble Braids

Bubble braids are an innovative way of doing your braids. Unlike traditional braiding, this style features elastics and/or scrunchies spaced out and pulled out to create a bubble-like effect. This is a great way to incorporate some character into your next protective style.

Goddess Braids

Elevate your protective style game with goddess braids. These are essentially box braids with curly strands added throughout the braids and at the ends. The added curls help to make this look truly divine! To avoid the tangling and matting caused by synthetic hair, why not try using human extension hair for the added curls?
