Amongst black women, the cornrow hairstyles are known as a form of traditional African American hair braiding, in which the hair is braided so close to the scalp. The styles of cornrow can be linear, in parallel lines, or, as an alternative, can be styled in complex geometric as well as curved patterns. Cornrows can be easily adorned with lots of beads.
The hairstyle is particularly favored due to its easy maintenance. As such, it is mostly worn among women who do not want to spend too much time in front of their mirror styling their hair or those who have active lifestyle.
It can be simply left in for several weeks at a time, with careful conditioning and washing as well as oiling of the scalp and hair.
The last option of cornrow hairstyle is the geometric cornrows. There are indeed thousands of examples of geometric cornrows which show the imagination and creation of the hair stylist.
These particular styles are created by using the similar method to that which is used for the traditional cornrows, yet instead of braiding the hair in parallel rows, you had better braid your hair in shapes of your preference.
The shape of your braid can be anything form circles and even swirls to numbers and letters.
These styles of cornrow can be made as extreme and bold as the model wants, and the wearer can opt for having something which is entirely original and unique.
