Braided Hairstyles for African-American Women
What do box braids, corn braids, micro braids, and all other weaving variants have in common? Except for the fact that they require little attention and maintenance, they can all be decorated with our favorite woven accessory: beads.
Beads and braids are the perfect summer style, bold and stylish. In many African cultures, weaving and corn weaving are a tradition that has spread around the world due to immigrants and people of African descent recreating and reimagining ancient traditions. Now that the natural hair movement is in full swing, women are keen to braid hairstyles to try new looks, protect their hair, and show pride in tradition.
