For the Love of Box Braids!

There's nothing more important to a woman than her hair! It's the total headpiece that adds personality to a woman's apperance and serves as the crown for many to look at in awe. Since I've been at an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), one of the most common hairstyles I discovered were Box Braids. These coily locs come in various sizes, styles, and colors as well as being known by multiple names. I personally referred to Box Braids as "Poetic Justice" braids for years before discovering their actual name. The braids became an especially popular style after multi-talented Janet Jackson rocked them in the movie Poetic Justice (1993). Here are some beautiful featured styles of Box Braids.
