Default Long Box Braids aka Booty Braids.. Would you rock them?

I'm curious about these. Now while i would like to get them in my own hair without extensions, ( i would act a fool if my hair was this long), i wouldn't mind wearing them

What about you ladies?

P.S I love the way Solange is wearing them in the first pic

yep, i think they're cute.

they're not the 'in' style of flowing ringlets but for once a fad is more receptive to what my hair can do so i'm all for it.

Default Re: Long Box Braids aka Booty Braids.. Would you rock them?

The only issues I had was that I couldn't wear buns. They just felt way too heavy. I did them myself so I just touched them up along the way. I used synthetic hair and I felt really fly with them. Not the best pic but for some reason I can't find too many of them.

I don't think I could do braids with extensions again because I abused micros for so long it left my hairline with some damage I'm still recovering from. I think the weight of those braids would be too much for my hair....also I'm a little scared of those chemicals they treat packaged hair with LOL. I miss wearing braids though! I hope my hair gets booty length long one day!

I'm natural and I've been thinking about getting these braids as a protective style for the rest of the summer. Possibly into the winter so I won't have to be bothered once school starts.

I work with a bunch of male engineers so I was nervous on their reactions, but I don't really care anymore. Most of them wear the same pants every day of the week anyway.

I plan on wearing my hair like Solange, in a bun. But after seeing that video in OT about that lady getting a possible MRSA infection from getting her hair braided I'm a little nervous on where to get them done now.

yup wore them in the 90's when the poetic justice braids were in. I really like them.

I saw a woman in whole foods with them last week and I thought they looked nice.

Beautiful braids ladies! I'd love to get some of these. I wore micros last summer and the braid was so tight that it messed uo my natural hair texture (made my hair straight). Does box braids alter the natural hair texture?
