Celebrating Cornrows and all their Glory

Cornrows have been adorned by Africans dating back to 500 B.C. and were even etched into the back of the head of the majestic sphinx. Cornrows have since come a long way and are still being rocked by many women today, and not just by black women!

Cornrows can be wore very small and this basic cornrow style can be achieved with your natural  hair or by adding extensions for length.

This funky style uses cornrows of a way of adding flare to these deep waves. Try purchasing some Deep Wave hair if your hair is not long enough to achieve this length. Have a specialist style and add the extensions for a longer lasting, professional look.

These beautiful cornrows of various sizes help achieve this beautiful, "crowned goddess" look and can be worn in the office or after work for Happy Hour.

This side pony is a funky alternative to achieving a more mature ponytail look.

Jill Scott has always been admired for her mesmerizing natural dos! This full look can be achieved by adding small cornrows to the front of the hair and doing a funky twist, coil or braid-out in the back!

For an alternative to traditional cornrows, try making them a lot bigger than you usually would for a "goddess braid" cornrowed style.

Similar to Jill Scott's gorgeous style, this can be achieved by doing the same with small cornrows along the crown of the head and 2-strand twisting the back, without taking them out. Gorgeous!

If you're looking for different protective styles, cornrows are a great and long-lasting protective style option!
