Box Braids, Braids Styles & Twist Braids
What Are Box Braids?
Box Braids is a type of hair extension which is rapidly growing in popularity. They're similar to Micro Braids except for the fact that Box Braids use synthetic hair rather than natural hair.
Box Braids consist of three-strand braids created by crossing opposing strands, one pair on top of the other. Since this is a difficult thing to do using only two hands, two braiding stylists are often required.
How Long Do Box Braids Take?
Box Braids take about 6 to 12 hours to complete, and last several weeks when they are properly maintained.
To achieve a flawless Box Braids style, always seek the services of a professional hair braider. He or she will make sure the proper techniques are used to avoid placing too much tension on the hair.
