What Are Cornrows?

Cornrows are a traditional style of hair braiding originating from West Africa. To achieve this beautiful look, the hair is braided tightly to the scalp in a continuous, raised pattern.

Cornrows can be produced using various techniques which result in a multitude of designs including straight, geometric, or curved styles. They're often adorned with colorful beads or shells which enhance their beauty. When done by a skilled professional, cornrows generally last between 2 and 4 weeks.
