Box braids have been around for a while and are definitely not going anywhere anytime soon. While the trend has shifted from micros to jumbos to classic poetic justice to all the way down to your butt a la Solange versions, the newest braid trend is definitely the bob.
The shorter style works as a perfect protective style transition for all the #teamtapered naturals, take significantly less time to both install and take down, and is much lighter on your head, which means less potential damage to your hair, scalp and edges. Check out these different ways to slay the bob box braid trend!
Pick a length: chin, shoulders, in between, or layered
Go jumbo or super small
You can still style your braids!
Have fun with different colors!
Don’t forget to accessorize
BONUS TRICK: If your hair is long, just cornrow the back and install the braids crochet style, or only 3/4 of the way down your head.
