10 Best Braid Hairstyles

  1. Knotless Braids

Knotless braids are a type of braids hairstyle that does not begin at the roots of the hair. They were created using the feed-in technique: your natural hair is first braided to about ½ or 1 inch before the extension is added. This type of braid is painless because they do not require a tight hold on the hair roots. If you use the same extension color as your natural hair color for your knotless braids, you get a seamless natural look as the end result.

2. Jumbo Braids

Jumbo braids are for ladies who do not like micro (tiny) braids. As the name implies, these are big braids. Your hair is divided into 12 – 18 sections and braided.

3. Goddess Braids

Goddess braids are thick raised cornrows. They are usually big in size and are suitable for women who do not like tiny braids.

4. Lupita Braids

Lupita braids are braided wigs created especially for ladies who love braids but do not have the patience to sit for hours to get one installed, battling hair problems that prevent them from getting their hair braided, or ladies who just want to try on a braided wig. This wig is fashionable and makes you appear more confident.

5. Ghana Braids

Ghana braids are thick cornrow braids that are braided straight back. They are suitable for ladies who desire a fuller and longer braids look.

6. Keke Braids

Keke braids are braided wigs that are made with curls in them. Furthermore, they come with cowrie beads to give off the African girl’s appearance. 

7. Passion Braids

Passion braids are a type of braids hairstyle created using two synthetic bundles: FreeTress Water wave hair and Freetress Pre-stretched Waterwave braiding hair. The end result is usually a butterfly kind of look.

8. Stitch Braids

Stitch braids are braids created by sectioning your natural hair into thick or thin horizontal lines before braiding. They end up giving you a beautifully unique look.

9. Bantu Knot Braids

This hairstyle involves putting your hair in box braids and then manipulating those box braids into Bantu knots. You can further decorate them with beads or cowries.

10. Ponytail Braids

You can do this in two ways: one by having your entire hair braided or by putting your natural hair in a bun, attaching a ponytail extension to it, and braiding it. Either way, ponytail braids are a beautiful braid hairstyle.

Braids are beautiful and you should have so much fun when you wear them.
