6 Ways To Style Crochet Braids

hqdefaultCrochet braids made a major appearance in the natural hair community over the past summer. It seemed like everybody decided to hop on the crochet braid bandwagon. Can you blame them? Crochet braids are an excellent and versatile protective style for natural hair. Now that the fall is in, some ladies may still be in the market for crochet braids. Here are six quick and easy styles for your crochet braids.

1. Sidehawk

What You Need: Gel, Edge Control, Bobby Pins, Toothbrush

The sidehawk is super simple. All you have to do is apply gel to one side of your hair, add a little edge control on top and brush your edges with the toothbrush (so that they can be laid!). After brushing your hair back secure it with a bobby pin.

2. Frohawk

What You Need: Gel, Bobby Pins, Brush

The Frohawk is basically the sidehawk if you pin up both sides! After applying gel and brushing your hair up, use a few bobby pins to secure the style. You’re going to end up with a few hairs laying down in front and a full ‘faux hawk’ style.


3. Peacock

What You Need: Gel, Toothbrush, Scrunchie

The Peacock is pretty much a half up/half down style. You’re going to gather a section of hair in the front (the crown of your head). Use a brush or a toothbrush to brush your hair back. Afterwards, gather the section into a bun and wrap it around itself so that the ends of the bun are sticking out in the back. Marley hair has awesome texture, so the bun in the front will have an unique look.

4. Puff

What You Need: Headband or Scarf

You create a puff with Marley hair the same way you would do a puff on your natural hair. In the video she uses a scarf instead of a headband because Marley hair is longer and heavier. Using a scarf is a great way to avoid headaches because it won’t be wrapped as tight.

5. Retro Bang & Puff

What You Need: Headband or Scarf, Bobby Pins

This style starts with a puff. Take a section from your puff in the front and take it out. Fold the section underneath itself at the front of your head and secure it either with bobby pins or by tucking it underneath the scarf. Your bang will be a little shorter than a normal bang but it’ll give you a totally different look.

6. Updo

What You Need: Bobby Pins

The last style shown in the video is a roll, tuck and pin on both sides of her head. Both sides wind up being tucked into each other in the back of her head.

All of these styles are quick and easy. They don’t require any real skill and barely any product. However they help revamp your crochet braids and make them look like brand new.These are good styles for almost any occasion. They’re perfect for anyone looking for new ways to style their crochet braids.
