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!

    People can do what they want to their hair. Get over all of this my hair is better than yours and if you wear weaves, wigs, dye/relax your hair, or wear make-up, you aren’t natural or being true to yourself or “race” foolishness. There are important things to worry about in life, and hair is nowhere near dire to sustenance.

    Gorgeous! I’m natural and wear crochet braids a lot. Get over it! Anyway, if you can corn roll, or know somebody that corn roll, that’s half the battle. Get your hair and a crochet needle. Just watch a tutorial once, and I promise, it’s sooo easy. If my 14 yr old can do it, you can too. It’s really hard to mess up.

    I’m sorry it shouldnt matter rather a woman wants to be natural, permed, weaved or wigs they are all OK & the woman is still beautiful. I’m so tired of this natural vs weave crap. People have a choice to do as they want… They style is cute & there’s nothing wrong with someone natural doing it. Smh
