One of our favorite things about box braids – other than the fact they look fierce AF – is once they’ve been fitted, they’re a pretty low maintenance hairstyle. Just think; your natural hair is being protected, you practically got a free facelift and other than the mandatory scalp care and nighttime silk wrap, you don’t have to spend hours caring for them. With that said, if you do want to update your OG box braid lewk, there’re tons of cute ways to experiment and play, from the classic 90s bob to braided bangs. To give you some major inspo, we curated a box braid gallery of tons of dope styling options.

1. Chop a bob
