Braided hairstyles are probably the most favorite kind of hairstyle of women. It doesn’t matter whether you are black or white, since braids are applied to everyone. It’s just that the kind of braids a black woman will typically do are different than the braids a white woman will go for. It’s a culture thing and also the difference between the quality of the two races’ hair. One of my favorite things to notice when I see pictures from red carpets is the chosen hairstyles and especially when braided haistyles are chosen. And since no one can do a more elegant and extravaggant braided hairstyle than a black woman, I have gathered some of the most incredible braids that we’ve seen on a red carpet worn by black women.
1. Golden stitch braids
I want to start with a hairstyle that did not come from a red carpet, but from Cosmopolitan, where stylist Stasha M Harris came up with this magnificent braided hairstyle.
2. Yara Shahidi
The young and super-talented actress follows the steps of Janelle Monae concidering her hair and through her show Grown-ish and her public appearances she gives us amazing braided or not hairstyles.
3. The Master Janelle Monae
If there is one woman in Hollywood who knows everything about braids, it is Janelle. I could not start describing Janelle’s choices, so I leave you with a picture to judge for yourself.
4. Issa Rae
You’ve heard the phrase saying that ”everyone works with what they have”. Issa Rae may not have the volumous hair of Yara Shahidi, but she manages to work her hair in amazing and very unconservative ways.
