Box braids are a type of hair-braiding style that is predominantly popular amongst Africans and African-Americans.

This type of hair style is best described as “protective style” and is “boxy”, consisting of square-shaped hair divisions.

Box braids are generally created by using synthetic hair to help add thickness as well as supporting the real hair in the braid also.

Because they are not attached to the scalp like other similar styles such as cornrows, box braids can be styled in a number of different ways.

The installation process of box braids can be lengthy, but once installed they can last for 6-8 weeks. They are known for being easy to maintain. However, these braids can also be done with natural hair.

How To Style Color Box Braids On Light Skin?

  1. Buns. This is probably the most popular way to style your box braids into a chic updo. The major advantage of buns is their variability. High buns can be bulky or more compact, loose or tight, simple or with elements of braiding.
  2. Ponytails. Make a high ponytail, wrap it with a beautiful silken scarf or attach a hair flower, and you already look awesome.
  3. Twists. They are an additional element that you can introduce into your creative hairstyles. You can twist your ponytail or front section off your forehead, for instance.
  4. Braids. Asymmetric braids from box braids, wrapping either side of your forehead are a brilliant idea.
