Experimenting with different hairstyles on delicate hair can be difficult without causing damage. Braided hairstyles come in handy in this situation. Color, length, hair accessories, and style options are key to rocking a braiding hairstyle. 

Braided hairstyles are popular because they are both low-maintenance and visually appealing. There are so many braided hairstyles to choose from, so committing to one for weeks can be challenging. If you’re looking for a trendy braided hairstyle that you can change up occasionally, this blog is for you. 

This blog features the top 10 inspiring hair braid styles for black women.

  1. Box Braids 

Box braids can be worn long or short, large or small, and with or without knots. Box braid styles range from jumbo box braids to small box braids.

  1. French Braids

Compared to other popular braided hairstyles such as cornrows, the famous inverted braid sections go inward and look flatter, unlike a traditional French braid that falls down the sides of your head. 

  1. Feed-in Braids 

Feed-in braids may be the way to go if you want knot-free braids at the base. Feed-in braids, like cornrows, passion twists, are a type of protective braided hairstyle. Start with a small amount of braiding hair extensions and gradually increase the size of the extension sections as you progress. 

This method eliminates the knot at the start of the braid and creates a natural-looking transition of hair thickness throughout the braid. 

  1. Individual Braids 

Individual braids can take a long time to complete because a full head of hair can have 150 to 250 small extension braids, but the result is well worth the effort.

  1. Lemonade Braids 

Cornrows parted in a side-swept formation are the original lemonade braids. As hairstyles change, this braided hairstyle has evolved to include larger braids and various parting styles.

  1. French Braid Updo 

You can tuck and protect your ends for up to a week with a French braid updo hairstyle. This rapunzel-inspired hairstyle is simple, with a single French braid running from back to front.

  1. Cornrows with Space Buns 

Cornrows with space buns are popular because of their versatility. You can wear this hairstyle with or without extensions, and it can be made to look simple or elaborate.

  1. Knotless Box Braids 

Box braids made with a feed-in technique are known as knotless box braids. Human braiding hair extensions are added in small pieces to achieve beautiful flat plait designs that aren’t too heavy on the scalp. 

  1. Braided Ponytail 

Ponytails are a lot of fun, and adding braids to the mix only adds to the fun. Cornrows or feed-in braids are braided at the crown of the head with a ponytail in the high braided ponytail. Depending on your hair length, you can make these gorgeous braids with or without extensions.

  1. Mini Twists 

Consider mini twists if you want a long-lasting protective style that you can wear in various ways. The two-strand twist braids can be done with or without extensions, but adding length will make styling your hair easier.

With so many braided hairstyles, you can change your braids as often as you want. Bring your inner artist out by combining braided styles. Get your virgin braiding hair extensions from Indique hair for the most natural look.
