Crochet Braid Hair
Crochet braids may sound like a reference to our own hair, but it's actually talking about the way we add styles to our hair. Crochet is more specifically a way to add extensions to hair. As with knitting, the basic principle of this method is to braid the hair and then extend the hair over the braid. However, unlike knitting, the hair used is loose and not on the weft. Instead of being sewn in, crocheted hair is crocheted (essentially a hook) under an ear of corn and secured with a knot. For a more in-depth approach, see below.
A French braid might be the most commonly known plait other than a basic three-strand braid. A French braid basically adds one more step to the basic braid technique by starting up near the crown of your head as opposed to the nape of your neck. It follows the same pattern of crossing the left strand over the middle strand, then crossing the right strand over the middle strand, and repeating all the way down—except every time you’re going to cross a side strand over the middle strand, you first add extra hair from that side.
It is the reverse of the French braid and is also known as the inside-out braid. The technique is similar to French braid but in this case, you have to bring the strand of hair under the three sections of the braid, unlike the French braid where the strand is brought in the middle of the braid.
The Dutch braid was not invented by the Netherlanders as many people wonder, instead, this hairstyle was adopted by the South African immigrants that came to the Netherlands. African women used to tie their hair into various kinds of braids to protect them from the damage caused by the sun.
Feed-in braids are a kind of plaited hairstyles where the braid is built with extensions from the ground up instead of just installing the extensions.
In feed-in braids, hair is braided very close to the scalp to form straight, continuous lines, just like cornrows. They get the name feed-in braids because the method of 'feeding in' thick pieces of hair is used to create this hairstyle
Goddess Faux Locs are a form of faux locs with a more bohemian styling. The hairstyle can vary depending on the type of hair chosen. It's common for the style to have a bit of a curl throughout the loc or at the ends. Flynn decided to create her own spin on the trend.
Cornrows are one of the most popular hairstyles right now. Braid the hair close to the scalp and use your hands to create a raised braid. Each in a neat line-that's where the style name comes from. The adaptability of cornrows is unlimited; They can be thin or thick and can be combined with other braided styles, such as box braids, or used to create false edges or fake hooks. Even better, cornrows are a protective style that can last for weeks without requiring much maintenance.
History shows that the Fula people of West Africa invented this amazing hairstyle. While there are many variations on fulani braids, the typical hairstyle involves a thin, tight braid that creates a distinctive, distinctive pattern at the top of the head. The two most common features you'll see in this hairstyle are a cornbraid in the center of the head, and a few cornbraids from back to front around the temples -- both features are demonstrated here by Erica Ash, as shown in the image below.
Butterfly braids are also known as jungle braids or no-knot passion braids. Butterfly braids are protective hairstyles where the hair is braided and then slowly rolled into waves, like the wings of a butterfly. Butterfly braids come in many forms, such as Butterfly locs, which have become very popular in the last two years. So much so that it extends to a lot of things like butterfly or Braid hair and so on.
Jumbo Box Braids
Jumbo braids are a larger, thicker variant of the famous African hair care hairstyle that divides natural hair into boxy shapes, and they surpass other braided hair care styles for a number of significant reasons.
Senegalese Twist Braids
Unlike Jumbo Box Braid, this hairstyle has a regular thick and thin braid. It is a very common hairstyle in daily life and costs very little. However, it is thinner than Jumbo in appearance. It also starts from the scalp by separating a small section of hair, then splitting the section into two sections and twisting it together from the root to the end.
Crown braids are like halo braids sitting higher on your head. If you're going to braid like this, then braid the Dutch braid from left to right, starting about an inch back from your temples. Starting from here will make the halo look more raised and less like a crown braid. As you add more and more parts, the braid will begin to coil around your head. When you run out of hair to braid, twist the last few strands and tuck them in. For formal occasions, especially in the summer, halo braids are a beautiful hairstyle and a great way to show off earrings.
