Crotchet Braids With A Bang Including Braid Pattern

Crotchet braids with bangs

We always post pictures of crotchet braids on Facebook, twitter and Instagram and the response is almost always favorable. It is a great protective style and a very popular alternative to regular braids and other types of weave, not to mention it is super duper easy to do yourself.

We found a great tutorial from MSPYT81 that included the beehive braid pattern and bangs which is below the post but before you watch there are a number reasons women like this style that you might want to consider.

The first thing that we thought was awesome is that your hair is protected in a way that leaves the edges intact (providing that your edges were full and strong beforehand of course). So many times we do protective styles involving additional extensions and expose our edges to damage; with crotchet braids you could eliminate that problem.

Another great reason to choose this style is again related to the health of your own hair because it allows you the freedom to moisturize and cleanse your scalp as often as you need to because you can part the hair and reach your scalp which is very different from some most weave options.

Styling is also very versatile, we often see crotchet braids in a curly style but you can use straight hair, kinky hair to create a ‘natural’ look or even do individual twists or braids. The benefit of this is that you can recreate micro braids without your hair suffering the same stress it would with regular micros. If you have a stylist who is great at crotchet braids he or she could replicate virtually any style you desire using this technique.

Additionally as with all protective styles that involve additional hair, we always encourage a little creativity, so if you want to try some color then go ahead and do it. Crotchet braids give you the freedom to do a bit of experimentation, you can go bold or subtle just enjoy the style once you decide to take the plunge

Convinced yet? Well if not, check out the tutorial and give the style a shot, we loved the bangs, it was the perfect touch!

Tosha Alston-Barnett

Look like the natural hair “trend” is over and we are getting back into weaves then itll be relaxers… SO sad.

LaTanya McDowell

I understand what you’re saying. But, it’ll never be over, because it’s not a trend. We have to keep encouraging our sisters who still can’t see the beauty of their natural selves. #DownWithWeaves

Tosha Alston-Barnett

Ever since going natural I will never go back… I agree just keep encouraging them the versatility of natural hair… without weave

Anna Marie Richard

NeNe WickedAmbitions

This is cute

Jei Lowe

Right up my alley!!!

Cherie Baker

It’s actually really easy to do. Just use free tress hair. )The kind that has no track) then you simply latch hook the hair onto the French braid. The braid pattern you use depends on how u want the hair to fall.

Satin Berry

you look alot better natural than made up with all that makeup

Kevina OnenOnly Kennerly

Other salons outside of bk do this lol. I go to an African hair braiding shop on 125th St in Harlem and they do this. They’re called best braiders 44 west 125th St. I usually get my hair done by jamila. My sister and I have been going to her since I was about 12yrs old. She’s really nice very professional and does an awesome job. And charges a fair price. (718) 213-0915 this is her number.


How much does she charge and what is considered a fair price?

Lexx Lee

Dessa Boo I may try it w bangs next time! Yeah or nah?

Kevina OnenOnly Kennerly

And just because a woman is natural doesn’t mean she can’t get a weave. It’s called protective styling. I’m natural and get braids, the occasional sew in and what not but this definitely isn’t a “trend” for me. I haven’t had a perm in over 5 yrs and definitely won’t be going back.

Negra Alice

Beautiful girl and haïr wouaaa

Tasheen Lockridqe

And all this time I thought women were using their own natural hair for this style & it’s weave smh the deceit lol jk it’s cute nonetheless… Always wanted to get this style but I thought my hair couldn’t do this now I know I could do it this way! We chocolate sistas sure are creative!

Resa Mann
