Cornrows – Otherwise known as “cane-rows”, cornrows are worn by men, women, and children. These are narrow rows of visible braids that are very close to the scalp.
Micro braids – These are tiny, single braids that are usually braided halfway, leaving the rest of the hair flowing. This can be done either naturally or from synthetic hair.
Kinky twists – These are tightly twisted or curled braids. They are rope-like and two-strand-based braids, looking like dreadlocks.
Dreadlocks – Also called “locks” or “dreads,” these are matted coils of hair. Dreadlocks are usually intentionally formed. Because of different hair textures, various methods are used to encourage the formation of locks, such as backcombing, twisting, or a process involving weaving of the hair with a crochet hook to form knots.
Tree braids – These are small cornrows that start at the front of the hairline and end at the nape of the neck while hair is added to make a full head of weave, giving you flexibility and many carefree options.
Pixie braids – These are individual braids that are usually small to medium in size. The braids are layered to various lengths and usually frame the face. They give a youthful, short-braid look.
Flat twists – These are two-sectioned braids, interwoven to lay flat on the scalp. They can be designed to a variety of patterns with or without extensions.
Goddess braids – These are large, inverted braids designed to lay flat on the scalp in a variety of patterns. The free end is styled into a finished style.
Single, individual, or box braids – These are basically free-hand braids without extensions. The braids are divided into three equal sections that are intertwined or weaved into one another.
Silky twist – Large sections like a cornrow base are rolled and gelled into a flat design pattern.
