CitiHair Hair Braiding

Hairstyles come and go but hair braiding is an ancient beauty technique with a long and literally winding history that roams across countries, cultures and centuries.

Braids have made appearances on the heads of men and women throughout history, indicating everything from utility to glamour, social status to ethnicity, marital status to even religious affiliation.

In modern times, hairstyles aren’t quite so serious but one thing hasn’t changed: braids are cool.
