African Hair Braiding is the perfect way to completely change up your hair

Braids are a classic, versatile hairstyle option that always stays in style. They are stylish, modern, and a practical choice for keeping hair off your face in hot, rainy, or humid weather. Braids come in all shapes and sizes. There are endless possibilities for styling your hair with braids, from curly and intricate to bold and straight. There is no denying that braids are dominating our social media feeds and celebrity-style picks. These are great if you’d like to dip your toe into braided ponytail styles without learning complicated techniques (because they’re so easy).

Braided ponytails are a great protective hairstyle that can last up to two weeks while allowing you to go about your daily activities and workouts. If you have fine hair, try a textured braid like a fishtail to give your ponytail more staying power.

Different braided hairstyles to try

Extra Long Cornrows Braid

Cornrows add a chic touch to ponytail hairstyles, as worn by actress Tracee Ellis Ross who takes her look to the next level with extra-long braids.

This can give the appearance of a longer, fuller ponytail without heat or chemicals. Additionally, cornrows can be a protective style that helps keep the hair moisturized and protected from damage, which can be especially helpful if you use heat-styling tools to style the human hair braiding hair extensions. 

Faux Bubble Ponytail 

If you want a ponytail hairstyle with some style but not too much volume and your braid skills need some improvement, this faux bubble ponytail could be a good option. Actress Gabrielle Union rocked this short, bubble ponytail hairstyle confidently. A faux bubble ponytail is a hairstyle that creates the illusion of bubbles or small, puffed-up sections in a ponytail.

 Depending on the desired result, you can create as many or as few bubbles as you like. You can also add accessories like beads or ribbon to add flair to your faux bubble ponytail.

Braided Hair Bun

A top bun with a braid hairstyle is a trendy way to style your hair. It entails creating a bun at the top of your head and adding a braid to the design. To create a top bun with a braid hairstyle, start by pulling your hair back into a braided ponytail at the crown of your head. Next, create a bun by twisting the ponytail into a coil and securing it with bobby pins. 

You can add a braid to the design by braiding a small section of hair and securing it around the bun with bobby pins. Alternatively, you can create a braid and incorporate it into the bun by braiding the hair before twisting it. 

Red Haute Cornrow Box Braid Ponytail
