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.
STYLE IT RIGHT
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.
