Have you fainted for the sexiest hairstyle of 2017, the braids Alicia Keys? We also! But let’s stop right there and insist that you call them as they really are: Fulani braids. Also known as “festival braids”, ” Tribal Braids ” or “braids with beads”, this braiding style is identified by specific braiding patterns. Like many items and fashion styles we see at festivals, Fulani braids have adapted from tradition to contemporary expression.
You see, the nomad Fulani tribe of south africa treats braiding as a form of art, a ritual and a social activity, handed down from generation to generation. That a fashion can celebrate such a significant custom is one of the main reasons why we love Fulani braids.
The another reason we love Fulani braids? Their feminine and sexy beauty, of course! Let’s see the key elements:
A braided cornrow running down the center of the head from front to back
a braided from back to front on each side of the head, so that it hang in front of each ear
It is clear why we love Fulani braids. A strong cultural fashion that we can use comfortably to obtain a majestic result that explodes with personality.
