There's no doubt that boxer braids are a major hair trend this season –Kim Kardashian has been rocking the look since the beginning of the year, Mainstream media went crazy and acted like black women hadn't been rocking this style for ages. Formally known as Cornrows! The culture jacking goes all the way back to Elvis Presley!
But thats neither here nor there, If you want the steps on how to CORNROW your hair. Here are quick 5 steps below, or just watch the video above.
Step one: It's easier to plait tresses which are clean and knot-free, so give your locks a shampoo and condition before you start. Blowdry your hair and then spritz a touch of texture or styling spray – this will make it easier to hold the style in place.
Step two: Divide your hair into two sections with a middle parting, which goes all the way back to the nape of your neck, as if you were tying your hair into pigtails. For a smooth line you might want to use a tail comb to section off your locks. Secure the two sections either with clips or elastic bands.
Step three: Loosen one of the sections. Take a small section of hair at the front of your head, and begin braiding. Slowly begin to add more hair so that the braid gets thicker and longer.
Step four: Keep working down the section, increasing the amount of hair you're braiding – make sure not to leave any strands loose as this style works best when it's impeccable. When you reach the ends of your locks, secure with a hairband.
Step five: Take the other section of hair and repeat, then secure with a hair band. Spritz hairspray all over your head to ensure the style doesn't budge.
