– Wrap-around braids and twists for black hair with fresh flowers. These are loose, messy and inspired by Boho chic.

– Very loose whimsical braids for long hair. The braid that starts from mid-shaft is not noticeable in the front and looks sloppy in the back.

– Low braided buns. Braided bun updos are always an extra charge of elegance to ennoble even the simplest outfit.

– Twisted rope braids. These long 3 dimensional braids, ideal for long thick hair, look very interesting, unhackneyed and worth a try.
The Most Gorgeous Black Braided Hairstyles

Check out the ideas in pictures below to get inspired.
1: Criss-Cross Goddess Braids
 Chunky cornrow braids, referred to as goddess braids, are perfect for days when you want to give your hair a break or when you are going on a beach vacation and would rather not worry about styling your strands every morning. The great thing about the braids of this size is that they don’t take too long to do and are easy to take out.
 2: Bold Triangle Parted Box Braids

Braided hairstyles are quite common among modern women, especially traditional looks like box braids. One of the easiest ways to make a standard style seem fresh and new is by changing the size of the braids and experimenting with parting. Large braids will go well with the 90’s revival and athleisure/streetwear fashion trends that are popular at the moment.

3: Braided Bun
For a long time, large braided updos were reserved for older women on the go. But everything old is new again, and now younger women are embracing the style with flair. The micro braids accent the jumbo cornrows for a fun twist on the classic.
4: Feed-in Braids
The benefit of the feed-in method is that it makes cornrow hairstyles look more natural and less bulky by creating a narrow and flat point at the hairline. This also creates less tension and protects the edges. This method of braiding can be done at any African hair braiding salon.
5: Centre-Parted Crown with Fishtail
Although they are known as “boxer braids” now, this double braided look has been popular for quite some time. Despite being one of the most popular and, therefore, common braids hairstyles for black women, the addition of a fishtail braid at the end and platinum blonde streaks makes this look a step above the rest.

6: Braided Updo Hairstyle with Curls for Short Hair
No need to rock a fully braided style to get the effect. Braid the back, leaving room in the front for bouncy spiral curls. This style works well with short to medium hair length, as it does not require much length to complete.
7: Snake Braids
Long and curvy braids are not your typical cornrows, but the idea is pretty much the same. Try the snake braids if you want a fresh take on the hair braided closely to the scalp. Add golden beads for extra bling!

8: Revamped Braided Ponytail
Take a ponytail to the next level with braids. Because the style is not very versatile, you want to introduce something quirky or fun into the look so that it doesn’t feel boring after a couple of days. Incorporating smaller braids, or wrapping hair around your ponytail holder are those simple touches that will keep it exciting.
9: Cornrows with French Roll Updo
Smaller braids tend to last longer, so if you are willing to commit to a style for a couple of weeks try this braided hairstyle for long hair. The gorgeous rolled Mohawk will suit a variety of occasions like a work trip or vacation with your significant other.

10: Chic Braided Bob
Braided bobs are simple but so chic. This is a run-out-the-door hairstyle that never fails – the wearer always looks pretty, polished, and put-together. The best part is that this ‘do is a winner with thin, thick, or medium braids.
11: Gorgeous Pocahontas Braids
This show-stopping double-plait is updated by color and complemented with side cornrow braids for a look you’ll be proud to wear casually or for an up-coming event.
