What are Cornrows?

What Are Cornrows?
by@magicfingersstudio

Cornrows are one of the most natural hairstyles that both men and women find equally appealing. The best way to describe the style would be to mention that it is a type of braid done incredibly close to the scalp. The sections of your hair that go into the cornrows are neatly attached to the scalp.

Instead of going straight down the middle of the back, side braids go asymmetrically across the head. As a rule, they start on one side of the head, move to the other, or stay on just one side. Because side braids are one-sided and asymmetrical, they will look great on both the left and right sides. What is more, side braids are a great way to create your one-of-a-kind look.

Should you be willing to try fashionable cornrows, you may need a detailed guide as to braid those sections. The process is quite basic at its core, but it may take you a few tries to succeed with the result you like. Follow these steps to achieve the goal you aim at:

Prepare the hair.

You can’t start adding cornrows to your style without a proper preparation process. You need to wash and condition your locks well before starting the braiding process. Don’t forget to add some moisturizer to your tresses to prevent breakage.

Map the section.

Before you begin the process, you should decide how many sections you want to add to your head. Work with a rat tail comb to define crisp and neat parts.

Divide the primary section.

Divide the first section into three, the way you would with a regular braid. Make sure that the section is as small as possible.

Start the cornrow.

Begin braiding the cornrow like a regular plait, but after the first section, you should be adding small portions of hair on each side of the cornrow.

  • Begin braiding the cornrow like a regular plait.
  • After the first section you should be adding small portions of hair on each side of the cornrow.
  • Connect the braid with the scalp as tightly and neatly as possible.
  • You can add some clip-ons as you proceed with the style to enhance the length or the color, or both.
