Difference between Box braids and braids



Difference between Box braids and braids

Braids are one of the trendy hairstyle at the moment , everyone around the world is embracing braids, both old and young .

Including celebrities like Solange Knowles , Beyonce, Keri Hilson , Brandy , Monica among others .People braid their hair for different reasons i.e as a protective style for those who have  natural or problem hair, low maintenance for people on holiday or busy schedules ,new mums , students etc .

But i strongly advice that people with thin hair should stay away from braids because  it can make matter worst for them. If you must have them it must be done by a professional  whose fingers are soft.

Nowadays the long waist braids  are  the trendiest of them all,the longer the more sexier and chic it looks , this way you can still have a low maintenance hair and still look stylish for any occasion .There are different ways you can style them for those who want to have fun with their braids.

Because of the confusion between box braids and braids ….

Now lets talk about the difference between box braids and braids !

Box braids are referred to those braids that are parted in square forms like tiles , box braids can also be referred to braids that are chunky  or thin and spacious where you can see your scalp when tied in a bun and they can be braids that are in a particular pattern. To avoid the scalp to show you can use plenty of hair extension and make it chunky, this can be very heavy .

while Braids can be any braids but generally they are normally small to medium in size ,close together and full .And you use less braiding hair.Braids are normally parted in arch or any how, there are no particular pattern but they are full that no scalp show through when you tie in a bun.

This one are more easy and fun  to style because of the size and fullness.This is the most popular one of them all.

Hope this helps !
