31 Crochet Braids Hairstyles

Crochet braids made a huge debut in 2015 and and it looks like they are not going out of style anytime soon. Hardly a new style, the resurgence in popularity of crochet braids — also known as latch hook braids —  is partly thanks to the current 90’s revival in both hair and fashion trends. This style is not only simple but easy to do as well. A great protective style with endless numbers of options, crochet braids allow you to experiment with various lengths, colors, and textures, all while keeping natural hair safe and undamaged.
The most common method is braiding your natural hair into cornrows, after which extensions are looped through the cornrows using a crochet hook. The end result is a seamless style that lets you show off bold hairstyles while your natural hair takes a break.

    • Hi Maria,
      Here’s what you need to do to get this style: Wash your hair with water (no shampoo or conditioner), Then use Shea moisture or a Wonder Curl Jelly. Then let your hair dry naturally. To maintain this hairstyle you can roll the hair and pin it back (during nighttime). Good luck!

  1. Never try crochet before but i want a Bob style but i dont want to cut my hair…Can u tell me what kind of hair to use and how to maintain this style. ….

    • Hi Ivana,
      The best way to maintain the texture of your crochet braids is to Keep the hair moisturized and spritzing it with aloe vera water and a leave in conditioner. To add more volume to this style you can use bigger sections when doing your twists, and you can use a pick and pull from the roots and cut the hair in layers.
