Cornrows are also known as rows or braids and they are a traditional African style. Here the hair is braided very close to the scalp depending on your desired design. The good thing with braids is that they are easy to maintain. You can also leave them on for weeks. If you feel that cornrows are your thing, here are some of the best designs that you should consider going for:

Braided Diva

This style is characterized by designer cornrows on one side and super braids on the other. You should start by sectioning your hair and braiding one side using your chosen design. After sectioning you should continue braiding the different sections into long single braids. To achieve the desired length and thickness you should add synthetic hair. Once you are done you should spray the hair in order to make it shiny.

It's good to note that while the hairstyle is good to have, it looks great on you if you have an oval face. You should also have a medium to coarse hair.

Curly Fro Hawk

You should braid your hair up on both of your sides in order to create a fro hawk. Before you start braiding you should ensure that your hair is clean and dry. Once clean you should go ahead and braid the hair with the design of your liking. When you are done you should secure the hair in place using pins. To have a great look you should apply a small amount of mousse.

This style is ideal for you if you have an oval or round face. For the style to last for a long time you should ensure that you keep the moisture content up. You should also cover the hair at night using silk or satin bonnet.

Side Ponytail

You should braid up your hair on one side and then top it up with a curly side ponytail. Just like other styles you should start by sectioning your hair off and braid it up. For ideal results you should braid it in a slight curved pattern. When you are done you should pull all of the hair into a ponytail and roll it with perm rods or flexi-rods.

You should allow the hair to dry and then remove the rods.

This hairstyle is ideal for you if you have a round or oval face. For ideal results you should have long hair. If your hair is not long enough to make a full ponytail you should go for other alternatives. For example, you can go for the drawstring ponytail.
