Long box braids are a protective braiding hairstyle that is normally chest-to-waist-length and contains box-shaped divisions at the roots. The length of the braids can vary from one person to the next. You can’t deny that this traditional hairstyle for African ladies, which involves braiding the hair, looks really stunning even without the addition of length.
Celebrity fashion figures like Zoe Kravitz, Kehlani, and Jordyn Woods all rocked various dramatic box braid designs. These looks ranged from gigantic box braids to beaded center-part styles to playful rainbow-dyed box braids, and they had us fantasizing about them. Beads, metallic cuffs, and trendy hues are just a few of the variations that may be used on your braids in order to make them more unique and attractive.
Angela Perrantes, a specialist in natural hair and an artist in the technique of braiding, demonstrates her several interpretations of this extremely adaptable hairdo. The hairstyles you can wear on a daily basis are virtually limitless; some examples are updos, side braids, and half-up, half-down styles.
You don’t need to be concerned about keeping it up because there are just a few actions that need to be taken, such as covering your hair at night while you sleep, maintaining a hydrated scalp, and washing your hair a few times each week. If you follow these steps correctly, you should be able to enjoy these enticing braids for anywhere between six and eight weeks.
