Cornrow hairstyles are characterised by tiny braids that are braided extremely close to the scalp. Cornrow styles for men have no limitation. They can be designed in any way. The stylist braids the cornrows in the hair, keeping them close to the scalp and if desired, creates braided designs, such as zig-zags, curves, straight lines, circles, or a combination of all these.



Microbraids are tiny braids also known as invisible braids because they are so small. Unlike cornrows, micro braids hang loose and away from the scalp. Micro braids can be combined with cornrows for a different ways.

Back Braid


A traditional braid style for men is to simply wear one long braid at the back of the head. The stylist gathers all the hair at the back of the head and forms a braid, secured the ends and leaves it to hang down the back.

Male braids are a hairstyle a lot of men don’t even consider, but they can be stylish look. They are most popular with African-American men, but anyone can wear them and make them look good. The longer, the better, though, because the braids will lie flatter near your head if the hair is longer.
