#FashionTrends – 5 Amazing Fulani Braids For Women Of All Ages

Braids

If you’re not old enough to have heard of actress Bo Derek, you’re probably at least old enough to know who singer-songwriter Alicia Keys is. Aside from being stately, beautiful, and successful women, these gorgeous celebrities have something else in common: they’re both known for their classic Fulani braids.

Fulani braids are usually styled with unique patterns of thin-to-medium tightly plaited braids that are close to the head and taper into hair extensions of all lengths. It’s associated with an African ethnic group known as the Fula.

You’re probably looking for a complete change of routine, after trying the same old braids. The beautiful plaiting in the top section of the head gives it a beautiful and elegant touch. It’s a break from the norm and a unique twist that will have you feeling like a new woman!

2. Top-Knot Bun with Cascade of Thin Braids
A signature hairstyle that shows off your graceful neck line, the top-knot bun with a cascade of braids offers you the best of both worlds. A classic half updo with jet-black extensions that fall to the waist are all that’s needed for a romantic dinner and drinks with that special friend.

3. Classic Fulani Braids with Massive Ivory Beads
One of the most traditional ways to wear Fulani braids is choosing a splash of subtle color. The copper red extensions are weaved throughout the entire length of the super-long braids. As if that weren’t enough, bright ivory-colored “tusk” beads bring the sepia tone down to a level that matches with every item of clothing in your closet.
