Braids are passed on for many generations and surely they can never go wrong. Trends may come and go but the classics stays forever. Hair braiding has been around since 3000 BC and is originated in ancient Egypt and Africa. The Egyptians used to wear their hair short on a casual day. On special occasions, however, Egyptians had been known to wear black wigs. The women, not only had long hair wigs, they also had their wigs braided and decorated with ivory and gold.
Hair braids come in all shapes, sizes and styles such as fabric braids, pigtail braids, braided Mohawk, tiny braids and cornrows braids which we have seen on the latest runways. For example, at the Antonio Marras spring 2012 show at Milan Fashion Week models were sported with round-the-crown braids.
A very popular style this season is the braided Punk or the braided Mohawk hair style is more the dramatic braid version. This style needs strong holding products that will make the style long lasting. But as you know strong styling products drying the hair out so you will have to use the proper hair treatments.
