Fulani Tribal Braids

Fulani tribal braids originate from the Fulani people of West Africa. They have become a popular hairstyle and typically incorporate several elements.

The iconic aspect of Fulani braids is the central twist or braid located at the top of your head, which can be accessorized with rings and beads for an even more stylish look.

On either side are thin to medium-sized braids that can remain loose or be tied up into a bun. It’s no surprise why this diverse and vibrant style has grown increasingly popular throughout recent years!

Make your tribal braids utterly unique by adding a pop of color! Ombre hues such as blue and purple will attract attention, exude individuality, and show off your inner radiance.

For maximum safety when incorporating dyed extensions into the braid look, go for protective styles that won’t damage or bleach your natural hair. Go wild with style – you have nothing to lose but the boundaries of traditional beauty norms!

With feed-in braids, extensions are added to your natural hair without tying knots. This puts less strain on the scalp and makes for an even more protective hairstyle.

If you have short or thin strands, these extensions will provide a thick tribal braid look that is sure to make heads turn! Feed-ins are not only great for length but they also bring fabulous fullness and body.
