Goddess braids are a great choice for some extra temperament, such as date night or attending a formal event. The look is created with two large braids twisting on either side of the scalp. These braids are usually braided using synthetic or human hair, making them more attractive, easier to maintain and last even longer than regular braids.

Curved Cornrow

This style looks charmingly edgy but can be a great way to show off your personality and your beautiful hair. This style is created by braiding regular cornrow braids but instead of running along the scalp, they are curved in various ways, creating a unique hairstyle. This style is recommended for special occasions, but you can rock it any day or night!

Kinky Twists Braids

Kinky twist braid styles are perfect for those looking for something with a bit more body and length. They are usually made using synthetic or human hair and are very versatile. They can be styled with accessories such as headbands, jewels, and more. Kinky twist braids work best for long to medium length hair and they look great when taken out after a few months.

Micro Braids

Micro braids are the perfect combination of tight and voluminous. They are great for adding volume to very fine, thinner hair. The process of creating micro braids is longer and more tedious than other styles, but the results are amazing. Micro braids look best on longer hair and can be styled in a variety of ways, from a fancy updo for a formal event to two sleek braids for a business meeting.

Faux Locs

Faux locs are a great way to switch up your style without having to commit to real locs. This style is created with two-strand twists extending from the scalp into little locs. The synthetic hair ranges from straight to wavy and can be worn for a few weeks up to several months. Faux locs are great for those who like to change their styles frequently and want something that can be easily styled.

These unique and attractive braided styles are great for any occasion and they are sure to make you stand out. Find your favorite and try it in 2021!
