Hairstyles come and go but braids have been a part of our beauty culture for thousands of years. From African cornrows to Grecian goddesses to Native American indians, braids have made appearances on the heads of men and women throughout history indicating everything from utility to glamor, social status to ethnicity, marital status to even religious affiliation. In modern times, hairstyles aren’t quite so serious but one thing hasn’t changed: braids are cool.
