Box braids happen to be the best protective style for absolutely any kind of weather. Although the installation time may be a little lengthy, it goes without saying that they are worth a little strain. You may have seen Rihanna rock this look on numerous occasions, the most recent being at the Fenty Fashion Launch, where she stunned red, waist-length box braids.
After installation, there comes the question on ways you can style your braids. No need to sweat it sis, I got you covered!
