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!

    For all those who are crying it’s still a weave….what she is doing is called a protective style . During the colder months you because of the elements it can to harsh for our hair natural does not just mean no chemicals but it has to be healthy hair so to protect it a protective style is used…… This is a beautiful style and looks great

    I love this style. People can wear whatever they want to. Natural is nice and so is weave. I have long hair and I also wear weave a lot. It works great for when I workout. Weave to me is a great protective styling process for me. I also love braids as well. I believe she is just doing different styles and I definitely agree with you Kevina onenonly Kennerly!

    People can wear weave if they want to hell. Some people don’t feel like doing their hair, natural hair is a lot of work!
