If you are someone who want to have low-maintenance hairstyle to support your active lifestyle, then perhaps you can take into account the cornrow hairstyle. This hairstyle is basically a traditional hair braiding, which originates from African.
If you are at all interested in this style, you can modify the cornrow in numerous looks, which include linear style, parallel rows, or curved and complex geometric patterns. In addition, cornrows can be adorned with beads.
This style is favored due to its easy maintenance. Hereunder is an example of the cornrow hairstyle for women with black hair.
You can try the extensions and tree braiding. Hair extensions can be simply woven into the cornrows for women who do not want to expose the hair to other harsher hair styling procedures.
This can also add lots of options to the styles from which a woman can choose. Having the hair extensions which are woven into cornrows is considered to be less painful than are the other methods of styling.
Tree braiding is actually a style or hair braiding whereby synthetic or real hair is woven into the cornrow braid, which simulates the appearance of longer hair.
Unlike the traditional cornrow hair extensions that appear clearly like hair braids, the tree braiding offers the chance to extend out each twist and then turn of the actual hair braid. That can create a natural look for long hairstyle.
Eventually, the artificial hair will fall over the cornrows, which covers up the actual braids, and gives a natural look.
