Cornrow Styles for Women: Summer Protective Styles

Summer is officially here and the last thing most of us want to do is to style our hair daily. This is when Protective Styling comes in handy. Protective Styles are the best way to give your hair a break while keeping it healthy and cute at the same time. One of the quickest and easiest protective styles to do is cornrows.

Here are a few cornrow styles that I have been loving lately: 


Beyonce's "Lemonade" Braids. Let's face it, Beyonce has been the (celebrity)queen of braids for a while now. She has been rocking them, on and off, since she came on the scene. I have been seeing this particular style being replicated EVERYWHERE and for good reason. These are beautiful yet classy at the same time and go with any outfit!

Feed in Cornrows - This is another VERY popular cornrow style and as you can see, there are many different ways to do them. The smaller braids add so much flare! 







Ghana Braids-  This particular style has been called "Ghana Braids" because of the technique used in West Africa where they continuously add hair into the cornrow while braiding. Although there are many different ways to do them, this is my favorite look. 


Fulani Braids : This is another traditional West African hairstyle originating from Fulani women. This style is gorgeous and I love how they look with beads or other hair jewelry. 










Now everyone knows(or should know) that Braids/Cornrows originate from the Mother Land, Africa. Check out this interesting article , on Black Girl Long Hair, about uniquely worn hairstyles in Africa. You will see some of the cornrow styles I featured in this post.
