One of the newer hair trends that has caught my attention are the box braids. For a long time; braids, dreads, and afros have scared me. But, it seems to have a strange appeal to me these days. And I have been considering a natural hairstyle for a few months now. I remember seeing a very beautiful young lady at the Grosse Pointe Woods fireworks with blonde dreads and it’s been like a never ending cycle of me trying to find a similar hairstyle.

A couple of days ago I took to my Google search engine and typed in boxed braids. To my surprise I saw Beyoncé (my favorite style star) rocking the box braids. It was like the confirmation that this trend is fabulous and it's something I should be diving into. I also saw pictures of her sister, Solange and I thought she looked absolute perfection. And of course I looked at images of women that aren’t celebrities and I loved their hairstyles in box braids as well.
So should I get box braids? And the answer is yes in my opinion. I’m young, black and I think that both of these facts correlate with the braided hairstyle.
