If you like this first style, then white box braids are for you. They are made by using white hair extensions to braid the hair. This is done so that knots are used to secure the braids at the roots. Depending on preference, white box braids can be made in small, medium, or jumbo sizes.

4. Half-Black Half-White Box Braids

Half Black Half White Box Braids

Half-black and half-white braids are made either by using black braiding hair for one side of the hair and white for the other.

5. White Fulani Braids

White Fulani Braids

Fulani braids, also called tribal braids, originate from the Fulani tribe of Africa. These white tribal braids are characterized by the presence of white cornrows, braided in front from the front to the middle of the head or from the center to the sides with box or knotless braids at the back. White Fulani braids are versatile because the cornrows in front can be plaited in so many styles.

6. Half-Black and Half-White Knotless Braids

Half Black and Half White Knotless Braids

Half-black and half-white knotless braids are made with both black, dark-colored extensions and white or white-blonde extensions. The braids are made in such a way that each individual braid is intertwined with either the black or white extensions. Unlike Half-Black Half-White Box Braids, there is no signature knot at the base of the scalp where the braid begins, but the transition from natural hair to extension is smooth at the roots.

7. White Knotless Braids

White Knotless Braids

White knotless braids are similar to the white box braids hairstyle, but there is one difference; the knotless ones do not have knots at the roots of the braids, making them painless. They do not produce much tension to the scalp, if at all, giving it a higher score on the comfortability scale for the wearer.

8. Red and White Braids

Red and White Braids

Just like the name, red and white braids are made using either red or white braiding hair for each individual braid. They’re plaited in a way that some braids are red, and others are white. Red and white braids can be made to follow a specific pattern, like red ones on one side and white ones on the other, or they can be made in an irregular order to spice it up.

9. White Twists 

White Twists

Braids aren’t the only hair-weaving technique that can be used for white hair! Twists can also be made using white braiding extensions. White twists can be made either tight or loose. Depending on preference, the sizes range from small to jumbo.

10. Brown and White Box Braids

11. White Braids Wig

Though not as common as other styles, wigs are one of the easiest, fastest, and most economical ways to rock white braids. You do not have to sit for several hours to make them or get them done. You can easily take them off and reuse them, too, if you like.

12. Black And White Box Braids

If you don’t want anything too dramatic, you don’t have to braid most or all of your hair white.

Black and white box braids can have each side of the head as either black or white. They can also have an irregular mixture of black and white.

White feed-in braids are cornrowed braids that look so neat and natural it’s as if there is no braiding hair added at all.

19. White Braids With Curly Ends

Long White Braids

If you love long hair, then you want to try out these white braids. They’ll be an excellent choice for you, but the long length of the braids might make them take a bit longer to make. However, this also makes the braids come out nicely, and there is a wide range of styling options.
