History of Ghana Braids

It was around 500 B.C. when Ghana braids became prominent in Africa. It was originally created to give honor to social status, religion, age, and ethnicity. During that period, Ghana braiding style can be observed in Hieroglyphs and sculptures. It can be seen at the back of the head of a sphinx. This style managed to survive through the Middle Passage until the Western civilization. Some slaves create curvier and more complicated designs to show their defiance and protest when their masters want to straighten their hair. At the time that they were caught and sold, they decide to shave their heads.

Now, a lot of women from various ethnic groups and races are rocking Ghana braids more than ever. It looks great on women of all ages. You can also adorn it with beads or flowers. If you want your shoulder length hair to look longer, then you tucked some extensions into it.

We have collected different Ghana braids styles, from the center-parted braids to the most detailed hairdo. These images only prove that any women can rock this cool style. What are you waiting for? Start pulling out your combs and start braiding right now. Continue scrolling to get you inspired.
