|Curly FrohawkThis is an artful blend of the braid and mohawk and lets girls get in on the fashion forward style that males have claimed as their territory. The stylist used a relaxed style sectioning technique and combined some varied skills from her arsenal. Girls with curly hair won’t lose that curl profile and those who don’t will gain a curly look by going the Frohawk way.||Braided MohawkCornrows are uniform and neat with this style, which can be done on girls with long hair. Instead of descending cornrows, the stylist started at the hairline and worked toward the middle of the head so there’d be plenty of volume for the mohawk finish. Girls sport the neatness of the rows of braided hair, and are left with plenty of hair to fling and toss about.|
|Two Strand TwistsTwo-strand Twists: No parting on this style gives it a free and sassy girl look. With double strands of hair dancing around each other in sweet closeness and finishing with enduring intertwining, girls with this look can have thickness in their flow of hair all around. It looks like a braided curtain trailing down her back and it sasses up her face as well||Zig Zag BraidsGoing for a tasty varietal style, girls with this look are making a statement about their individuality, their freedom and their heritage all at the same time. It’s the cornrow plus something extra style that will get a girl noticed. All hair is away from the face, showing what a cutie pie she is.

|Dutch BraidThere’s something appealing about turning things upside down. This style does that to the traditional French braid. This braid has tension, but not too much. This style can help tidy up a girl’s scalp hair after a fresh washing, yet it offers free-flowing loose hair at the back. Really the braids are upside down with the stress of hair going underneath close to the scalp instead of close to the air.||Crown BraidWhat girl doesn’t want her own tiara? To have a crown grace her head says princess all the way. With a circular braid base and thinner braids intertwined, it becomes the glorious crown made from the girl’s own tresses.|
|Four Strand BraidWho said braids had to be done with three strands? This four-strand adds an almost checkerboard pattern to the finished braid. Unique and noticeably different, this braid style can be done in multiples all over the head.||Rope BraidThe rope braid is a different take on the two strand twist. With a looser hair flow, it can do wonders to keep hair more tame and organized without complicating matters. Girls like jump ropes and won’t mind having their hair styled like this jumping sensation favorite.|

This is no mystery. It is ethnic and a charm for those with natural hair. The main caution with this style is that it is for even length hair. Aside from that, with a nice afro pick and good moisture, but not too much, this style can be winning in all kinds of ways and with all kinds of lengths.
Some thin crisscross braids filtering up from the back, along with unbraided hair can be swept into a bun at the top. The bun is created using a ponytail where the hair is tucked under all around and then pinned.
Braids going from the face to just below the crown of the head can be finished off with a non-uniform bun. The bun should run rather low, not at the top. Clipping this messy bun will be a breeze if you don’t take yourself too seriously.
Updos don’t have to be at the top of the head. This style has swirls of braids. At the nape of the neck the hair is gathered into a side ponytail.

It’s a race to the top! The braids are made from the frontal hairline to the crest and then the rest flows down. The style ends in a cascaded ponytail.
