Top 10 Braids for Long Hair Black Women 2015

#1: SPIRAL / LACE  BRAIDED PONYTAIL

So you know I had to show some diverse styles, to show on both ends how different styles can be created from different cultures.  Stepping outside of the box, I’ve never seen such an intricate design for a braiding design.  Had to try!  So starting from the top all hair is pulled back into a neat ponytail.  Taking some hair from the ponytail it is then wrapped around the rubber band to hide it.  Then a medium size braid is weaved into the hair giving it a spiral effect, so some of the hair is loose and then you see braid been spiraled around all the way to the bottom.  Such a beautiful braids for long hair style.  If your thinking of a nice outing on the town, or even for an event or wedding, you are sure to turn heads.

When it comes to the long tresses adding color is always a way to make the whole style pop.  The front bun is just swooped one time instead of multiple and the rest of the long braids are left down to show the two toned placements of the braids for long hair.  Fun summer look for sure!
