12 Ways to Shine in Knotless Crochet Braids

Why knot? Allow us to illustrate.

Knotless crochet braids belong to the category of sewn-in hairstyles. This gorgeous, sexy look is a protective hairstyle that can be worn many ways.

The great thing about sewn-in hairstyles like knotless crochet braids is that it’s easy to switch up your look rather quickly. These braids are hair extensions (a.k.a. weaves) that are sewn into your hair into cornrow braids. Whether your hair is damaged, are in the process of growing out your hair or if are just plain bored with your style, sewn-in knotless crochet braids protect your hair while it “heals” and grows as well as give you a brand-new look to play with while your own hair takes a break from styling. Read on for some inspiration:
