Hair braiding is the creative art of interweaving strands of hair to form a design. Hair braiding styles are known to be protective styles because they protect your natural hair from daily manipulation.
Having your hair braided keeps your hair out of the way while you are working.
BRAIDING STYLES @ iHOBBS
PICK & DROP BRAIDS
Pick & drop are braids which are plaited for down the hair for about 2.5 inch, knotted, then the rest is just left out. At iHobbs we skillfully go far enough past your hair before knotting to avoid any damage to your own hair. This technique requires a high degree of skill.
Cornrows are glamorous type of hair style where the hair is braided close to the scalp in order to create straight or patterned designs. Cornrows give you added option of using your own hair or attaching extensions for longer length. At i-hobbs, we can create a range of attractive and precise styles.
Faux locs creates the illusion of real dread locs using extensions twisted around your own hair. This style requires human/ synthetic hair wrapped around your natural hair. Actual human hair locs can also be attached to your roots to creat faux locs.
Twist braids involve the twisting of strands of hair from the roots and going all the way until the ends of the hair shaft. Twist braids can be achieved either with/ without incorporating hair pieces/ extensions into your natural hair.
