1. Brown Box Braids
Brown box braids are made with brown braiding hair. The braiding hair is used to braid the hair individually from the root so that a knot forms at the root of the hair. Box braids may stay for several weeks without falling out.
2. Brown Knotless Braids
Brown knotless braids are very similar to box braids but with no knots at the root of the individual braids. Knotless braids are painless, and they also last for several weeks.
3. Light Brown Box Braids
There are the light brown box braids if you do not want your box braids to be too dark. Light brown braids usually complement light skin types, but they also look great on women with dark skin.
4. Black and Brown Braids
For each braid, black or brown braiding hair is used, resulting in black or brown braids on some and brown braids on others. Black and brown braids can be made to follow a specific pattern, like black braids on one side and brown ones on the other, or can be made in an irregular order.
5. Brown Braids On Dark Skin
Brown braids, particularly those with dark undertones, appear particularly stunning when worn by women with dark skin because, in comparison to light brown braids, they provide a more natural contrast with the wearer’s complexion.
6. Blonde and Brown Braids
Spice up your brown braids by making some of the individual braids using blonde braiding hair. Blonde and brown braids can have just a few of the braids at the back as a blonde, each side of the head as either brown or blonde, or the braids as an irregular mixture of brown and blonde.
7. Honey Brown Braids
Honey brown braids are made using dark and light brown extensions. The braiding hair colors are mixed and blended well before use, or you can just opt for ready-made honey brown braiding hair.
8. Dark Brown Box Braids
If you do not want your brown box braids to be too vibrant or draw a lot of attention, then go for the dark brown box braids. Dark brown box braids give almost the same vibe as black box braids.
9. Brown Ombré Braids
Brown ombré braids have brown as one or more colors transitioning into one another. Ombré braids are made from two or more colors and have one color starting from where the other color ends. There is also ready-made ombré braiding hair that can be used.
10. Dark Brown Knotless Braids
Braiding extensions in dark brown are used in the making of knotless braids in dark brown. If you want your braids to be dark but do not want black-colored braids, you may choose to have knotless dark brown braids done instead.
11. Brown Tribal Braids
Tribal braids, half up half down braided style with the front as cornrows and the back as a box, can be made in brown color using brown extensions. These Fulani braids can be made on all hair color types and any preferred style.
12. Brown Lemonade Braids
Lemonade braids, also known as side braids, may look quite stunning when created with brown extensions. Another name for these braids is French braids. The whole of the hair, including the brown extensions, is braided to one side.
13. Brown Locs On Dark Skin
Brown locs, especially the dark-colored ones, blend well and are great for dark-skinned ladies as the color complements their skin and gives a natural vibe. Brown locs are versatile as there are many options to choose from in terms of sizes, lengths, and styles.
14. Brown Braids with Blonde Highlights
When you are thinking about a color to blend with brown for your braids, blonde is one of the colors that go well with brown and is worth considering. Blonde colors are an excellent choice when utilized as highlights for brown braids.
15. Brown Feed In Braids
Due to their neat and natural appearance, feed-in braids are quickly becoming the hairstyle of choice for almost everyone. Brown feed-in braids can be achieved by working brown braiding hair into the braiding process as usual.
16. Brown Goddess Braids
Goddess braids have a fuller and more sophisticated look which makes them trendy. Brown goddess braids use brown extensions to braid the hair and have brown curly leave outs. Just like every other goddess braid, brown goddess braids require more maintenance because of the curly leave-outs that must be prevented from getting frizzy and tangled.
17. Long Brown Box Braids
Your brown box braids may be designed in longer lengths for those who prefer longer lengths. Because of the length of the braids, creating lengthy box braids takes much more time. This is because there are more individual braids involved.
18. Brown Braids with Beads
Beads are beautiful hair accessories that are used to adorn braids and make them look more attractive and sway while you walk. Beads of different types can be attached to your brown braids to beautify them.
19. Brown Braid Wig
Braided wigs are the easiest, fastest, and most economical ways to rock braids, as you do not have to sit for several hours to make them. Also, you can easily take them off and reuse them. Braided wigs are in several colors, with brown as one of the popular ones.
20. Black Knotless Braids with Brown Highlights
Brown colors in different shades can be used as highlights for black braids. When opting for brown extensions to use as highlights, ensure they are not too dark so that the highlight effect will be more pronounced.
