Introduction: What are Brown Box Braids?
Brown box braids are a popular trend in the African American community. Recognizable by their pattern of dark brown hair, most people also associate these braids with natural hair and the texture of kinky or curly hair that they cover. The main difference between brown box braids and the natural hair is the texture. Natural hair tends to be very tightly curled, causing it to have a small circumference. Brown box braids are typically made with synthetic hair that tends to be much more loosely curled and larger in circumference.
In contrast to natural hair, there is one other feature about brown box braids that has some similarities to the texture of natural hair: the smell. Naturally and temporarily clipped hair tends to have a scent similar to its own odour and oil; it usually smells burnt or charred, like after an explosion. Brown box braids tend to have this scent as well, but only for a very short amount of time.
Color is another common feature of the cut. Brown box braids have been created in a variety of colors, including black, white, and a combination of the two. There are times when certain colors of brown box braids are worn only to keep up with fashion trends; other times they are worn for practical reasons. For example, the latter case is often used by women whose hair is in dire need of a trimming.
Different Types of Braid Hairstyles and How to Make Them
Braids can be either two-strand or three-strand, although the majority of braids are two-strand. Two-strand braids are made by tucking two strands of hair through a comb, then wrapping the strands around each other and pulling it tight with a rubber band. This style is normally worn with twists pulled down on one side and in front of the ears. Three-strand braids are made by using a hair elastic to weave the strands in and out of each other. The length of the braid is determined by how many times you repeat this process, or how many wraps you make. Once your braid is complete, another rubber band is wrapped around it to secure it on the head. The third type of braids are cornrows. Cornrows are the most popular type of braids and usually last longer than other types. These types of braids are made by weaving the hair in and out and back again. To complete this style, hair is rolled in a tiny coil called a rosette. The rosette is sometimes left empty to allow the hair underneath it to show. Other times, hair is left out of the rosette to form locks on the top of your head. Cornrows may also be used as a technique for making wigs or extensions or may be used as an alternative to weave hairstyles. The most important thing to remember when wearing cornrows is not to force the hair into tight coils. If you experience cuts or scratches, use a styling cream to prevent the hair from growing out too fast.

Brown Girls with Box Braids Showing Off Their Natural Hair Flows
Brown box braids are worn in many different hairstyles, including a bun, ponytail or pigtails. Recently, more girls are wearing their hair in its natural state while sporting brown box braids. The popularity of this style is due to the soft natural texture of the hair that is covered by the synthetic braiding hair. The lock of hair is wrapped so that the natural hair grows out from underneath.
Brown box braids are one of the most versatile styles because they can be worn in many different ways. For example, one girl wore her brown box braids for a casual look with a ponytail and bun. Another girl wore her brown box braids in a side-braid with a low ponytail. The last girl wore her brown box braids in an updo hairstyle, which was the most beautiful style of all. The updo was created by wrapping the synthetic braiding hair in a bun and then pinning the strands of natural hair to the back of her head.
Conclusion: Which is the Best Braid Style for Your Face Shape?
The best style for your face shape depends on a variety of factors, including the braids it is used in and the hairstyle. If you have a round face, then a bun would be very flattering. The braids in this hairstyle are bunched at the top and pulled down, creating volume at the crown of your head. The bun is pulled down on one side to create a shape at the back of your head, and it is secured with a clip. The bun has been pulled back to expose the lengths of hair that are tucked into the bun, thus creating dimension and fullness. If your face is more square shaped, then you can wear any one of the braids used in this article. A pulled back braid is quite flattering for a square shaped face because it softens the angles, and it creates a rounder shape at the back of your head. A twisted braid can also be worn with this hairstyle, as it exposes some of your hair at the front to soften your jaw line.
If you have an oval-shaped face then you can wear any of the braids used in this article. You should ensure that they are styled in such a way as to draw attention to your best features. This can be done by pulling the braid back from your face so that it is tied at the side of your face, and then twisting the ends to create texture. This style is also very flattering for oval faces because it draws attention to your best features.
