 Here are twenty braided hairstyles to think about the next time you're ready to try a new do.

Braided Puff

When we talk about braided styles for black women, we usually think of options that require an extended trip to your favorite braider. But, Fatou Diedhiou shows us that we can remix even the puff with braids. See her tutorial here.

Classic Box Braids

Classic box braids are always a good idea. Ashley Blaine shows us that you can rock them with dipped or non-dipped ends.

Braided Jumbo Ponytail

Kelly Rowland’s braided jumbo ponytails are on my list of styles to try. These braids work on all hair types. Just grab a little gel and a bundle of Kanekalon hair.

Braided Top Knot

Amanda Seales’ golden top knot is a braided up-do that won't weigh you down like traditional box braids and will pair well with professional work attire or tops with high necks.

Guava Island Braids

Rihanna’s Guava Island braids are another excellent option for all hair types and can be done on your natural hair (depending on the texture) without adding extensions.

Long Cornrows

Take a cue to from hair icon Tracee Ellis Ross and add length to your go-to cornrows. The longer, the better!

Braided Locs

Chloe x Halle are always showcasing the versatility of locs, and their braided coils with a touch of neon intermixed are a stunning representation.

Side-Swept Braids

Okay, so these are twists, but we added this cropped, side-swept do because this look can be achieved with braids as well.

Colorful Shoulder-Length Box Braids

If you're ready to trade in your natural hair color for pastels, use Kersti's colorful shoulder-length box braids as your guide.

Whip Braid

If you missed Tessa Thompson's whip braid at the Met Gala, head over to Google to catch a glimpse. A whip braid might not work in certain areas of the real world, but this braided crown works for any occasion.

Braided Up-do

We enjoy braided looks that can be done in the comfort of our own homes, and Osmia's braided up-do is one of those. You may need the help of a couple of mirrors angled in the right directions or a best friend that is patient and good with parts.

Crown Braid

Crown braids can be achieved on any hair texture, but Ciara's goddess braid is ideal for ladies with a few days old silk press, relaxed hair, or a sew-in. Don't be afraid to frame the face with loose pieces of hair to add texture.

Cornrowed Crown Braid

Since Serena stepped foot on the world stage, she has rocked braids with pride. Her Teen Vogue cover was no different as it was the first time a cover star wore braids. You can wear Serena's cornrowed crown with the back of your hair pulled up or down.

Jumbo Braids

If Kelly Rowland's double ponytails weren't your style, these jumbo braids are a way to split the difference while playing up the jumbo braid trend.

Here are twenty braided hairstyles to think about the next time you're ready to try a new do.
