At one point it was faux dreadlocks, then crochet braids, and now I haven't been able to scroll without seeing at least a handful of knotless box braids. As you might have guessed already, knotless box braids are another variation of box braids. The difference is that, unlike box braids, these don't include the small knot that sits at the root of the scalp bec...

Cardi B Must Have Telephoned Lady Gaga For This Beauty Look, and We Like It

In 2009, Lady Gaga was synonymous with outrageous outfits (remember the meat dress?) and bows made out of hair. While Gaga has toned down her look in 2019, Cardi B has taken the reigns with clam-shell dresses, rainbow hair colors, and even recreating that iconic hair bow. The rapper performed at Coachella this weekend and was spotted with her husband Offset wearing hip-length blue and purple hair arranged into bows on top of her head. Her hairstylist, Tokyostylez, revealed on Instagram that he u...

Need a New Protective Style? These 21 Photos Will Make You Want to Wear Bantu Knots Every Day

A bantu knot, as popularized in parts of Africa, is a section of hair that's twisted or braided and later wrapped around itself to form a small bun at the top of one's head.

22 Photos of Women Rocking the Hell Out of Their 4C Curls

With a sea of YouTubers and natural hair influencers boasting looser, type 3 curl patterns, it's safe to say 4C natural hair doesn't always get a lot of love. As a 4C girl who spent years manipulating my hair with chemical relaxers and weaves before finally going natural, it even took me a while to come around to being proud of my texture. That's mostly because of a hair texture hierarchy of sorts that, more often than not, has caused people to deem type 3 hair as "good hair," the concept of whi...

Four years ago, I decided to wear my hair naturally curly. It took some time for people to adjust. I was q...
