Big 'Beyonce' Bun 1 / 15 Share Pin It Mercredie Remember after Beyonce gave birth to Blue Ivy and rocked that box braids bun? Of course you do. In memory of that style, French beauty blogger Priscilla from Mercredie created this box braids hairstyle. Now all that’s keeping you from being as flawless as Bey is a stretchy headband and some bobby pins. “The Maze” Style 2 / 15 Share Pin It KyssMyHair The hair blogger from Kyss My Hair recommends using a big stretchy headband to keep your hair together in this box braids hairstyle. The headband won’t pull on your braids and can be easily hidden by the style. High Bun with Side Bang 3 / 15 Share Pin It MissKenK To get vlogger MissKenK’s braided bang-and-bun look, create a loose braid with the bang pieces crossing over the top of your head and into the bun. Separate the braids in your bun into two sections, braiding each. Twist them around until they’ve formed the bun, tuck, and pin to secure. Heart Bun 4 / 15 Share Pin It SuperChiomy Even though this look seems like it takes a lot of work, vlogger SuperChiomy shows that it’s easier than you think to achieve. Just separate the pieces of a high ponytail into two parts, and braid them to the ends. Then, in an alternating motion, twist them into a braid, and secure them tightly. “The Ring” Style 5 / 15 Share Pin It KyssMyHair To achieve this simple yet elegant style, Kyss from the Kyss My Hair blog says to start twisting all your braids in one direction. In one motion, swoop them all back to one side, and secure with bobby pins. Braided Half-Up Style 6 / 15 Share Pin It Sage Ogun This look is a great one for box braids newbies. Vlogger Sage Ogun created this quick and cute look by pulling back the pieces from the front and creating one large braid. Be sure to pat the braids down so that they’re flat. Use your favorite mousse to eliminate fly-aways and give it shine. Pocahontas Braid 7 / 15 Share Pin It Mercredie This look is the classic half-up look. But Mercredie blogger Priscilla adds a simple twist: a braid. The cool part about doing this style with box braids is that you don’t need any pins or hair ties. Double Twist Bun 8 / 15 Share Pin It MissKenK If you’re feeling fierce, then follow MissKenK’s lead and incorporate an accessory into your box braids style. After creating braided buns out of the front and back sections, add a glitzy ear-cuff clip or pin. Pompadour Bun 9 / 15 Share Pin It Mercredie The beauty blogger at Mercredie has no shortage of box braids hairstyles, and this one might be our favorite. After creating a high ponytail off to one side, separate it into three sections, and braid each. Make a lopsided crown out of the braids by pulling to the opposite side of the ponytail, and secure with as many bobby pins as you can. Twisted Back Bangs 10 / 15 Share Pin It Super Chiomy Vlogger SuperChiomy braided from the front and tied the braids into a knot in the back. If you’re feeling more relaxed, leave the braids down for a boho chic style. Flower Bun 11 / 15 Share Pin It MyBlackHair Hair-blogging twin sisters at MyBlackHair created this classy flower bun hairstyle for your box braids. Taking small sections from a ponytail, twist them around your finger to create “curls.” These curls will form your flower. Continue until all the pieces have been curled and pinned. Mini Front Bun 12 / 15 Share Pin It Mercredie Priscilla from Mercredie moves the top section to the front, then quickly braids it all the way to the end. After a twist around, leave the last bit of the braid out, and pin it down to secure. High Front Twist 13 / 15 Share Pin It Revele-Toi This box braids hairstyle—created by the French hair blogger at Revele-toi—starts by making a heart-shaped twist with a small section of front braids. Gather those pieces with the side braids into a ponytail. Twist the pony into a braid, and be sure to tuck in all the ends. Faux Hawk 14 / 15 Share Pin It Tiara Monet Vlogger Tiara Monet rocks this faux hawk style. Start by creating a fishtail-braid–type weave from the back to the front. Then pin it back, and mold it to the height you want. Double Bang with Pony 15 / 15 Share Pin It Peakmill We like blogger Peakmill’s box braids hairstyle because it’s an eye-catcher. Start by securing the side-swept bang under the pieces for the braided bang. Once the braid is complete, pin it back, going in the opposite direction of the first bang.

Upon first glance you’d be forgiven for thinking these were just cornrows but before you carry on you should know these are not just new cornrow styles, these are goddess braid hairstyles. Those are something different… Consider to be one of those go-to styles, easy to live with, low-maintenance, etc., it’s a great design to pick when you’re trying to give hair that’s been over-treated or chemically treated, a break for a while. Let’s take a look: 1. Goddess Braids Chignon Hairstyle What makes them different from cornrows? Well, these goddess braid hairstyles are completed with larger braids, more pronounced than their counterparts. Instagram / kersti.pitre They generally lie on top of the scalp and usually with a center-parting, heading towards the back and nape of the neck in a halo-style. You can add to that innocent nature but doing yours like this one, the goddess braids chignon hairstyle, by twisting the braids together into a low bun and pinning into place. You could even consider wrapping a scarf around your bun for an extra accessory. 2. Four Goddess Braids Style Four? Why four? Why not is the question you should be asking. We love this four goddess braids style and we think you might just love it a little too. Instagram / conteh_hair_braiding Make sure your lines are neat and sharp and you’ll have a great time with this fun look. You can either leave the braids left loose down the back or design them up into a twist or bun design for those days you can’t be bothered to rock it down. The choice is down to you, these goddess braids are so versatile! 3. Elegant Updo For those occasions when only the very best will do, this elegant updo is a great design and if you wanted to bling it up a little more, you could even consider adding hair cuts to random strands with beautiful light reflecting metals and gems. Instagram / mzpritea If you’re going to rock these goddess braid hairstyles, make sure you have great conditioned hair to start with. This will pull the hair quite tight and if it is already damaged, you may find that it leaks to further breakage and hair that just won’t do as you say. 4. Purple and Blue Style When you have a rocking ‘do like this fabulous blue-haired beauty, you have every right to show it off and what better way to accentuate your style than with a brand new pop of color? Instagram / iamglamfreak You don’t need to go for blue of course, there are plenty of options to choose from, but there’s something about this purple, blue and black combo that makes us go a little weak at the knees. Boldly blue – we love it! 5. Goddess Fishtail Braid Updo A fishtail braid works a little differently from a normal braid but in this goddess braid hairstyle, it looks pretty fabulous don’t you think? Instagram / filthyrichtresses A fishtail braid uses four strands as opposed to three, and you alternative strands between both sides in order to get that braid-lined effect. It’s a bit tricky for a first-timer but after a couple of go’s (and a few YouTube tutorials), it didn’t take us long to pick up this new and funky braid technique. 6. Three Goddess Braids We’ve seen four goddess braid hairstyles so it makes sense to show you a similar look but this time, with three braids instead. Instagram / eboni_styles_ One braid, two braids, four, fifteen, it doesn’t matter. Pick a number and ask your hairstylist to go with it. You’re in control and there’s no right or wrong when it comes to beautiful hair styles like these. 7. Braided to the Back These braids have a number of different names associated with them from goddess braids hairstyles to halo crown, milk maid, goddess crown braids, and more. Instagram / hairby_beauti If you want a look like this that will stay in place for a while, you’re better off doing it on two-day old hair where the hair isn’t too oily or greasy but at the same time, not too dry, soft or fluffy like it can be when it’s just washed. 8. Cute & Simple Design Before you go for a stunning (but tight) look like this, make sure you undergo deep conditioning treatments for at least two weeks to ensure your hair is in good enough condition to withstand the tension and pressure about to be placed on it. Instagram / mzpritea The last thing you are going to want is further damage and breakage to your hair and although the look is considered low-maintenance and versatile, it still can cause some harm. 9. Caramel Brown Goddess Braids We showed you purple and blue and if they weren’t quite to your tastes, why not look at these goddess braid hairstyles with beautiful blends or caramel brown running through them. Instagram / eboni_styles_ The contrast in color between light and dark here works very well and it helps to add more depth to a one-dimensional look. Everything about goddess braids screams with texture so it makes sense to add more with a pop of color too. 10. Curved Style Ladylike and almost Greek-goddess in nature, what’s not to love about this curved style, another of the great goddess braids hairstyles that are simple, easy and versatile to wear both day to day and night to night. Instagram / riddlemetwists When you ensure your hair is moisturised and strong prior to having your cornrows or braids put in with a style this like, your new hairstyle will last longer and you’ll be less likely to suffer with that frizziness you can often find with afro hair in braids.
