For a simple, historic and beautiful hairstyle, cornrows are the hairstyle. 

Cornrows are a type of braid plaited very close to the scalp using an underhand, upward motion to produce a continuous row. 

Cornrows like dreadlocks are worn by men and women. 


Cornrows are great because they are a lot less time consuming than braids however if the hair to plait the cornrow has been pulled too tight this can cause hair loss. 

There are also different types, styles, lengths of cornrows. 

See pictures below of some local celebrities rocking cornrows:
