Braiding 101..

History of Braiding 

The art of braiding can be traced back centuries to its roots in Africa. Historically, every country in Africa has a form of braiding incorporated into its standard of beauty for men and women. Throughout the African American hair experience, braiding has been used as a restorative technique for the health and well-being of the hair. Until the 1960s, braiding was performed in the privacy of the home and not worn as an adult style.

Today, the art of hair braiding has evolved into a newer age of style and creativity. Culturally, just about every hair style involves braids such as hair weaves, crochet braids, box braids and more, for all ages. Braids served as a protective hairstyle that can be worn to work and maintained for weeks when done professionally and well maintained.
