Finding a good braider is hard sometimes. Finding that person with those magic fingers that don’t pull too hard or braid too tight is one of my life missions, especially when it comes to cornrows. With cornrows I want the lines straight, parts crisp, and all the braids to be uniform. And with the weather getting cooler, ladies, I am all about protective styling. So without further ado, here are some cornrow looks to get inspired by.
