20 TRENDING BRAIDED HAIRSTYLES FOR WOMEN


Women have worn braids for thousands of years all over the world. The style is one of the most versatile, running from incredibly intricate patterns to simple plaits. Braids are also perfect for almost every occasion. 

Researchers say that braids were “in fashion” even 2000 years b.c. If they have survived till our time, there definitely must be something special in them, don’t you think? No wonder, every year world-famous designers experiment with braids at fashion shows. Fancy to know what’s new they offer!

Keep scrolling down to see the top braids for black women to try in 2020.

1. Braided Bun


From loose braids to cornrows, there’s no single way to rock a braided bun. So which style will you pick?

2. Box Braids


Classic box braids are one of the most iconic styles for Afro-textured hair. All your hair will be sectioned into squares and worked into individual plaits to get this look. You can use your hair or have extensions braided in, which will give you head-turning long, full locks. They are considered a protective style and can be any length or thickness; however, if you have naturally thin or fine hair, opt for smaller box braids, so there’s less tension on your scalp. While box braids take a long time to put in, once finished they last for weeks and are very low-maintenance.

3. Thick Braids


This look would require very thick and long hair to pull off. The braids are very thick which takes a lot of hair to accomplish. But the style is stunning.

4. Criss-Cross Goddess Braids


Chunky cornrow braids, referred to as goddess braids, are perfect for days when you want to give your hair a break or when you are going on a beach vacation and would rather not worry about styling your strands every morning. The great thing about the braids of this size is that they don’t take too long to do and are easy to take out.

5. Double Dutch Braids


Whether you’re hitting the gym or the beach, make these easy double Dutch braids your go-to look

6. French Braid


A timeless and feminine style, the French braid is a classic for a reason. You can wear this versatile braid for a casual brunch, the gym or the office. Keep it super smooth for a more professional look, or pull a few face-framing pieces out for a soft and romantic vibe. You can also team it with a fishtail braid or half-up, half-down style, and French braids are also a popular hairstyle for wedding guests. Whatever the occasion, a French braid is a perfect choice.

7. Tight Braids


These tight braids bring a different look to someone who wants a no-nonsense style. The braids are tight, so they are easily manageable.

8. Dynamic Side-Swept Cornrows


Braided looks are so popular among African Americans because of how they protect the hair. Once the hair is in the braid, it is free of heat and manipulation for weeks on end. Plus, it’s really cute and there are endless designs to express yourself.

9. Kinky Braids


With kinky braiding hair, you can get a stylish look that complements your natural hair texture and protects it, too

10. Braided Ponytail


If you’re looking for a new way to style your braids, the simplest option is a high ponytail. The style is popular because it draws the eye up, making your face seem longer. It’s also versatile, working equally well for the office, school, gym or a date night. To make your braided ponytail look perfectly polished, secure it with a clear snag-free elastic and wrap some of your braids around to cover it. Finally, add hair accessories for some extra personality.

11. Rope Braids


This is a great example of the rope braid. Her hair is very long, so the look suits it properly. The braids are styled in a rope-like fashion and left down.

12. Asymmetrical Goddess Braids


Mix plaits of different sizes into braid hairstyles to create texture and dimension. Combining chunky and thin braids is unexpected. It’s also a lot more exciting than regular plaits. The unique parts keep the hairdo fresh and fun. Add beads or gold cuffs for the final touch of personalization.

13. Two French Braids


Can’t quite get the hang of Dutch braids? Go French instead.

14. Lemonade Braids


Lemonade braids were made famous by Beyoncé, who wore them on the cover of her smash hit album Lemonade. The style involves creating neat, even and close cornrows that go from left to right, rather than straight back. Lemonade braids are a versatile look as they can be any size or thickness, and you can also combine them with other cornrow styles like zig-zag, or add accessories like rings and beads.

15. Creative Art


These cornrows look like a work of art. They are shaped around the head to give a style that could be worn to a fancy event.

16. Feed-in Braids


The benefit of the feed-in method is that it makes cornrow hairstyles look more natural and less bulky by creating a narrow and flat point at the hairline. This also creates less tension and protects the edges. This method of braiding can be done at any African hair braiding salon.

17. Cornrow & Box Braids Combo


This Instagrammer is having plenty of fun with her blonde braids. Teaming her cornrows with box braids is pretty fabulous alone but with her beaded tips, she takes this combination to the next level! Keep slaying, honey.

18. Fishtail Braid


A festival classic, the fishtail braid brings a touch of boho to any look. It’s one of the simplest braids to create because it doesn’t involve a complicated pattern. However, you will need to separate your hair into small sections – about half an inch – and keep the tension throughout the braid to avoid it falling apart. You can begin the fishtail at any point on your head, using a French or Dutch braiding technique, which means it will work on short hair as well as long. A double fishtail is also a great way to wear this look.

19. Twisted Braids


If you are looking for something truly eye-catching, then these twisted braids are the perfect look for you. It’s a rather large style so it will require a lot of hair.

20. Cornrows Enclosed by Headband Braid


Have fun with your protective styles like this halo braid. All of your ends will be tucked away, so you won’t have to worry about breakage. To make a hairstyle like this last, make sure to wrap your hair with a satin scarf every night or use a bonnet.

Ways To Make Sex Last Longer

How To Last Longer In Bed
There are some things in life that, inevitably, don’t last a long time. But sex… should not be one of those things. Sure, there’s a time and place for a quickie, but for the most part, sex should be an experience that is enjoyed for as long as you and your partner want, preferably with no time limit.

It’s not exactly news that it takes men less time than women to reach orgasm. And once it happens, sex is often over. After ejaculation, men go through a refractory period where they are unable to achieve another erection for a certain length of time (women have little to no refractory period). It’s normal and it varies, but it does have a way of interrupting intercourse. The only way to defer it is to delay orgasm, which is why we’ve put together a list of tips for lasting longer in bed.

Insanely Tips To Please Your Man In Bed
You probably want to know how to please your man in bed. But guys aren't always so verbal about what they need.
The bedroom is one of the great stages of male performance, so what you see on TV is typically far from what can (and should) be delivered in reality. That's why sex experts chimed in with more accurate insight about what guys really want you to know when the two of you climb into bed. Here are the top sex tips for women.
1. Do It With the Lights On
You may be worried about what your husband thinks of your post-breast-feeding boobs, your C-section scar, or that at some point, he'll stop being attracted to you because you look a little — OK, a lot—different than you did on your wedding day. But men rarely notice your self-perceived flaws — they only become aware of them if you're preoccupied with them or go out of your way to cover up. "It's true, men are very visual," says relationship expertBernardo Mendez. &…

10 Things You Didn't Know About Donald Trump

10 Things You Didn't know About Donald Trump

Whether you love him or despise him, you just can’t ignore Donald Trump. “The Donald” has been a controversial public figure long before his recent bid for the presidency. The real estate mogul isn’t after the presidential perks or salary, in fact it’s costing him dough to chase the oval office, so why is he doing it? Some say he’s running for a higher purpose, to restore our country to glory. Others claim he is a megalomaniac with nothing currently better to do than rile up America.
To fully understand Trump, it’s important to dig deeper than the sound bites and information offered by talking heads on TV. One minute he sounds almost presidential, other times he seems a misogynist bully. Not too many voters really know what he’s about so it’s important to analyze the man behind the public image with some lesser known facts about Donald J. Trump.
