Box braids are large single braids trendy for the summer. Pricing varies based on length of braids. Box braids are a style often achieved with human or synthetic hair.

French Braids are the most popular braids usually done in two.The Braids lay close to the scalp and the final result is very sophisticated.In the simplest form of three-strand braids. The French braid includes three sections of hair that are braided together from the crown of the head to the nape of the neck. Variations on this hairstyle include the Dutch braid and the Fishtail braids. All of the hair is initially divided into three sections, which are then simultaneously gathered together near the scalp. In contrast, a French braid starts with three small sections of hair near the crown of the head, which are then braided together toward the nape of the neck, gradually adding more hair to each section as it crosses in from the side into the center of the braid structure. The final result incorporates all of the hair into a smoothly woven pattern lay over the scalp.
Braided Cornrolls are similar to french braids, but are smaller tighter braids that line up against the scalp.
Herringbone / Fishtail Braids
The Herringbone or fishtail Braids are very similar to french braids. Fishtail braids use two thin layer of hair to intertwined hair divides into only two sections instead of three.This braid gets its name from its intricate, bone-like structure. The two-strand braid pulls smaller sections from behind each strand and tuck them under the opposite strand in the front.
The Dutch Braids Similar to french braids but looser,and relaxed -looking. The Dutch braid is the reverse of a French braids. It’s sometimes called an “inside-out”braid or a reverse braid. The technique is the same, except that instead of bringing sections of your braid over and into the center, you would bring the braid under.
Lace Braids is a simple braid that falls in the front of your head, like a tiara or a half moon and weaved together. The braided hair appearance is loose. The longer your hair, the better longer your lace braid will look. You may also add flowers or jewels to your lace braids to give you a desired look.
Locks or dreadlocks price range is based on the desired length of the lock and can be worn in many styles.
Dreadlocks are strands of hair formed by braiding and twisting of the hair. Dreadlocks can also be formed through a technique called “twist and rip”. While leaving hair to its own devices – foregoing brushing, combing or cutting the hair, also known as the “neglect” technique and “free forming” – will generally result in tangles and mats, the formation of evenly sized dreadlocks takes planning and maintenance.
Various methods are used to encourage the formation of locks such as backcombing, braiding, rolling and the crochet hook method. All of these methods require ongoing work to be applied to the dread before it becomes neat and tight or mature. However, if the crochet hook method is applied by a skilled hand throughout the length of the dread, then the resulting dreadlocks are instantly tight and will not need any rolling.
