What are the popular types of Braid?

Braided hairstyles are one of those statements that have its casual version, wedding version, serious version and so many more. Braid is that element that blends in almost all occasions. Some common variations of braids are Box Braids, French Braid, Lemonade Braid, Dutch Braid, etc

How do you rock Braids?

Braids are nothing but weaving done on the hair. The hair texture be it afro, thick or thin decides the feel of the braid. Sometimes the weaving starts on top of the head or some start from the middle so different length gives a neat vibe to it.
