18. Green Box Braids + Floral Headband

Green hair? Sure, why not! If you’re feeling like your green hair is just missing something, you should add some accessories such as floral headband. Big flowers in hair are a must-have for this spring and summer.

19. Half Updo Tutorial

Braiding the box braids into a big braid, always ends up with a stunning hairstyle. Besides French braid, you can braid a fishtail braid or simply make a two strand twist. We love this tutorial!

20. Box Braids Mohawk

Are you brave enough to shave off the portions of your hair? We don’t know about you, but this edgy hairstyle makes us want to shave off our sides right away! Shaved sides look better with longer braids. And don’t worry, high bun isn’t the only way to style your braids when rocking this type of mohawk.
