As the name sug­gests, it’s a hair­style achieved by braid­ing the hair very close to the scalp to look like rows of corn on the cob. Also known as crows, the style is mostly prac­ticed by the African com­mu­nity. It’s a very ver­sa­tile and low-main­te­nance hairdo that can be kept in­tact for days.


Make sure to mois­turise your hair well be­fore you pull them back into corn­rows. Tightly braided ones may hurt your scalp, cause hair­fall or give you a headache, so make sure that the braid­ing is com­fort­able. You can also weave rib­bons into your braid for a cool, dressed up ver­sion of corn­rows. Hair ac­ces­sories such as dia­mante pins are also a good op­tion to stake through your hair.
