Hairstyles come and go but braided hair is an ancient beauty technique with a long history that roams across countries, cultures and centuries.

In some regions, a braid was a means of communication. At a glance one individual could distinguish a wealth of information about another, whether they were married, mourning, or of age for courtship, simply by observing their hairstyle. Certain hairstyles were distinctive to particular tribes or nations. Other styles spoke to an individual’s status in society.

In modern times, hairstyles aren’t quite so serious but one thing hasn’t changed: braids are still around, and they are awesome!

These images are just to good to be true!
