35 Best Bob Box Braids For 2020

 

Inspired by the legendary Cleopatra, we introduce the bob box braids as the next big trending thing in the hairstyling world. In addition to being a protective style for your natural hair, they can be a solution for girls with shorter hair who wish to flaunt exceptional designs.

They are the retro-chic design that works with any kind of upcoming event. So, with the help of these tips and tricks below you will be able to master a whole new level of "drop-dead gorgeous".

General Tips And Tricks You Should Keep In Mind

Before you kick it off with your massive braiding skills, here are a few pointers to give you a heads up above mastering the art of box braids.

  1. Each face shape is paired with the suitable hair length for it. For example, round faces pair up perfectly with relatively short hair.
  2. Don’t forget to seal the ends of your braids with elastic hair bands. Then cut off the rest of the extensions that you don’t need once you reach the desired length.
  3. Don’t braid your hair tightly unless you are okay with damaging your natural hair or want to end up with hair loss.
  4. Avoid thin braids. Because thicker braids offer more volume and take up less time when you style them.
  5. Always use hair extensions with more length than you exactly need. Because as you braid your hair it tapers down and becomes thinner as you reach the end. Thus, it is better to have a few extra inches before your braid ends. Then you can cut off the extra length that is no longer needed. After all, volume and shape mean everything to this style!
  6. Don’t forget to take care of your hair at the nape. Even though it is a bob, adjusting the length of the hair dramatically can definitely turn heads towards you the minute you walk through the room.
  7. Get your friend to help you. Because this is a hairstyle that can last for hours to finish yet can last for up to 2 – 3 months

You can always go backward and just shape your hair in a bob before you start braiding. Then, decide the length you and braid. You can also consider the jumbo box braids or poetic justice braids.
