Braided hairstyles for men include box braids, the long braid and sectioned braids. These styles are most often seen on textured hair but are sometimes worn by those with fine hair.
Box braids are small braids that are braided directly onto the scalp. Often, these braids are used with extensions, making the hair look much longer. They are usually braided in straight rows but are sometimes braided in swirled designs.
The long braid is a very alternative look and is worn down the back or over the shoulder. This style works with longer hair of any texture.
To create sectioned braids, the hair is divided into square sections and then braided. These braids are sometimes gathered up in a ponytail at the neck.
