There are a lot of different types of hair braids, and the braid type that you choose should depend on the thickness and style of your hair, as well as how your facial bone structure looks. You want to find brands at Surfers Paradise Hair Wraps and Braiding that will frame and flatter your face to make sure you look as good as possible.
Box Braids are popular for people who want thin, individual braids. They will flatter a lot of faces, and they are good for protecting fine hair too.
Cornrows are traditionally associated with the ethnic community, although these braids are becoming more common among sportswomen as they are popular for their tight, no-nonsense and no-fuss structure. They don’t tend to come undone, and they are easy to maintain. They are quite severe, though, and to soften them you might want to make them into a wrap-around braided bun. This creates a nice elegant look.
If you’re looking for something a little different, then a braided updo could be the answer. Updos have been in fashion for decades, but they’re usually soft, flowy, and to be frank a little boring. Wrapping a braid around the outside can make them seem a little more creative and glamorous. Tease the burn itself out a little bit to make it look more casual, and you’ll have the “I just threw this together” chic and fashionable look with minimal effort.
As you can see, there are a lot of different hair braids to choose from. What works for your hair may not be the same as what works for your friends, so don’t be sad if your box braids look flat, or your cornrows seem too thin. Just keep experimenting until you find something that works with your hairstyle and your face.
You probably won’t need to put the product on your hair to make the braids stay – in the fact that’s not a good idea because it will make it harder to wash and care for. Try to find something that will look good when your hair is ‘natural’, and then sleep with your braids wrapped up in a soft scarf or a towel to stop them getting matted and messy. If you do this, the style should last a while before it needs to be pulled out and re-done. When you wash braids, don’t scrub them, because that can make them matt and damage your hair.
