With the cold season being here, many naturals are turning to box braids for protective styling.  That being said, it is really easy to get into a styling rut when wearing braids for two to three months straight.  Well, that is until now; here are ten of the most stunning box braid pictorials to inspire you.

Let’s start with Revele-toi and her gorgeous knotted style.  For this look, all you will need is an elastic hair tie.

All of these are nice. My hair just can’t handle braids anymore. Follices too sensitive.
