Braids are a protective hairstyle that shields your hair from damage. The art of braiding is ancient, but these styles have never gone out of trend! From a French braid to braid twists, if you are baffled by the umpteen types of braids, let us simplify things for you. It can be a wedding or a business meeting, going to the gym or on a date, you can find a braid for every occasion.

Box Braids

Box braids are a protective hairstyle for natural hair, achieved by sectioning off the hair into squares, or ‘boxes’. Braiding hair is often added to the natural hair for length and each section is plaited into individual three-strand braids from root to tip.

Micro Braids

Unlike box braids that are bigger in size, micro braids are much smaller (hence their name) and require a lot of patience. They can take several hours or more to create, depending on how much hair you have and how long you want them.


Twists may have one less strand of hair to work with, but they are just as beautiful any braid! We love particularly love this braid queen’s Marley twists and the natural-looking kinky finish. So, if you’re a naturalista in dire need of change, you know what to do!

Crochet Braids

Crochet braids actually refer to the method of crocheting hair extensions into pre-cornrowed hair. This fast method is favoured by hairstyle chameleons, who love to hop from voluminous curly to straight hairstyles.
