How I Style Bob Box Braids

Hi all, hope you are having a productive week. So I have decided to delve into the world of beauty as well as fashion. I do some many different hairstyles and have some little beauty hacks here and there and thought why not share it with you guys. 

In this first beauty post I show you the different ways I have been wearing my bob box braids and yes they are greyish silver i'm kind of on this hype atm. In terms of maintenance i do oil my scalp once a week and massage my scalp. I also run my hands through the hair with some leave in conditioner nothing heavy so it doesn't weigh the hair down.

I have gone swimming with this hair style, i wear a swimming cap but no matter what my hair still gets wet, so I co-wash it so i don't smell like chlorine.  

Lets jump right into it. Enjoy 

1. Everyday

This is how the hair style falls naturally, however this is too in your face and not very practical especially for work.

This is just the everyday, day to day look.

2. The Headband

Another way I keep the hair out of my face is to put on headband on it as in the picture above, you can achieve that all (non slick) back look. Also because my braids haven't got a definite part, if I do want the hair to fall forward in a more controlled fashion the head band also helps with that.

3. The Topknot

The classic topknot, beware this will catch a lot of attention so if you are not particularly fund of people staring at you and trying to figure out whats going on I would stay clear of this. But i love the edgy and how daring it is. You will need a hair tie and some hair grips (bobby pins), because the hair is short there will also be a lot of tucking in required.

4. The Double Knot

Probably even twice as daring will be the double knot, again because the braid are short it will require a lot of manipulation and tucking so you don't have random strays and again bobby pins will be your best friend for this look.   And yes I have worn all this hairstyles to work, I work in an office setting. So depending on where you work you can definitely pull this off. Why be the same as everyone else when we were born to stand out. Bob braids do not have to be boring they can be as versatile as long ones too.
