28 Stunning Crochet Hairstyles You Need to See

10 beautiful ways to wear crochet braid styles this season.

Crochet hair is a protective style that uses a crochet technique. This method is a way to add extensions to your hair via a braid. For this style to work, there has to be something for the crochet needle to latch onto. In this case, it’s a cornrow braid. Although, for many, the crochet braids style seems to be new it’s far from that. This technique has been around for years. However, as of late, many women are using these extensions for protective styling. Why? Unlike many other protective hairstyles, creating crochet hairstyles is super DIY-friendly —if you can cornrow braid.
