1. Box Braids

This hairstyle really hit it off and the end of 2013 and is still rolling in quickly this year. It is a very
versatile hairstyle that allows you to just have fun with it. We even seen celebrities like Beyonce herself rocking the box braids hairstyle.

2. Tree braids

Tree braids are a natural type of hair extensions that is increasing in popularity. It uses a series of braids and knots to hold extensions in place.

* Divide your hair extensions into three pieces of equal size. Combine the natural hair with extensions, maintaining the three equal pieces.

* Continue this process until the braid has reached your desires length. Ideally, you should continue
braiding until you are past the endpoint of your natural hair and are working only with hair extensions.

*Using the outer 2 sections of hair, secure the braid with a knot. Allow the middle section of the hair to fall through the braids. Use the two sections of hair to tie another knot further securing the braid in place.

3. Black Braided Bun Hairstyles

If you are looking for a more sophisticated look try braiding your hair into a bun. Braid your hair into a ponytail and secure it with a band. Then wrap the hair around the ponytail and pin it .It is easy and it will leave you looking chic and sophisticated.

4. Micro Braid

You achieve this hairstyle the same way as the box braids but they are way smaller. Some people micro braids over the box braids because it is lighter on your head and easier to handle different styles.

5. Classic Hair Band Braids

If you don’t want the entire braided look you can always try the classic hair band. You just part your hair on one side and braid it around and under the back of your hair making it appear you are wearing a head band.
