Also known as Patra braids, Solange braids, big braids, box braids, dookie braids and Poetic Justice braids..lol A long list of names for sure!
I think Patra or Sheneneh braids better suits mine.
I ADORE them! Some people don’t like big braids but I sure do!!!! I prefer them over small braids.
Sheneneh pictured below in her all her ratchet glory.
I was tryna look like Brandy! I LOVE her twists and how she styled them!!!! She is so pretty<3
Word in the streets is that Jamaican dancehall singer Patra is the originator of these big braids. She allegedly started sporting them in the 90s first.
Now time for some more braids inspiration from Angela Simmons, Queen Bey, Brandy, Keri Hilson, The Okpo Sisters, Solange, Janet Jackson, Eva Marcille and Jhene Aiko. I got these pics via Google image search and I went absolutely HAM..lol
I am just gonna rock braids all summer. Not so my hair can grow but because I don’t feel like doing my hair. It’s either rock braids or shave all my hair off…lol I don’t feel like dealing with my hair.
How are you rocking your hair this summer? Do I look like Sheneneh or NAH?
P.S My sissy in law is a great hairstylist so if you’re looking for someone to do your hair, I’d be more than happy to pass on her contact info.
Let me know in the comments and thanks for reading 🙂
