Avatar • Jun 5, 2015

Ghana Braids (also known as “banana braids”) is a style that has been around for a while and is currently bubbling over with folks around the globe. The style is essentially your traditional cornrow style but much bigger. The style starts with hair braided to the scalp in a crescent pattern and loose braids that hang down the back. Take a look at a few styles that caught our eye.

Lol. I think if I was featured on BGLH I’d have the same réaction. Call my friends, my family and making a little dance.

i thought this were just large cornrows with a tapered front? i didn’t know there was a name for them. when i’d describe how i wanted my hair (to the braiders) they’d say it was “special technique” and try to charge $40 extra.
