Braids (or plaits) are all the rage when it comes to hairstyles. Dated back to the time of the Pharaohs, braids were an unspoken sign of statuses in life including wealth, marriage, mourning or tribal notoriety. Through time it has revolutionized into a modern hair fashion accessory. An intricate modern hair fashion accessory, but an accessory nonetheless. But now with DIY Braids, you can replicate the styles you’ve grown up doing and the latest techniques.
