If You Can’t Decide Which Braid Style…Then Don’t..

Corn rows with braids gives you both styles fused together. If you want to integrate it into your current style, you can just get it done on one side, giving a very unique look that combines your current style with corn rows and braids.

The style you see here shows the fusion of the styles together. It is also the same hair style Bo Derek had in the movie “10”.

Easy to care for…

With the braid corn row combo style you do not have to brush your hair for three weeks. No worrying how to style your hair. The only thing you have to do is wash it.

The Final Touch

At the end of the braids you can make even more choices. You can use different colors for a fun beach look. You also have the option of using bands, if that is more your style

Here are 2 Outer Banks visitors that added their own touch to braids and extensions. These two visitors to Life on a Sandbar’s Nags Head Braiding location have a hair braid that is underneath their current style.

Braids with 3 Colors of Beads

This allows them to keep their current hair style yet still add some new (braiding) touches to it. The braid extension also allows some color coordination. Both ladies opted for 3 different colors of beads.


Very Sturdy for the Active Lifestyle

Another huge advantage of this style of braid is that it is perfect for the active person. Whether you are visiting one of the beaches in Nags Head, Kill Devil Hills or Kitty Hawk or beyond, this braid can last a long time


In fact this could be one of your most lasting Outer Banks memories, both in photographs and for the time you take it home. Some of these braids can last up to a year! You also have the option to remove it if you want to much sooner, without it impacting your current style.

What are Sideways Braids

Braids really allow you to express your creativity. The different variations of braid styles allow people of all ages to have fun and express their individuality. One style that has become very popular is the sideways braid

The sideways braid is a hybrid of the cornrow style, except it is designed to work with other styles instead of being the dominant hair style. It also can be done in a myriad of ways.

Outer Banks Braids Braid Styles in OBX

Major braid styles

There are a few principle options you can choose when you are opting to braid your hair.

Feather Extension

One is a simple colored braid called the feather extension. This is a really fun, non committal way to have style without a drastic change to your hair

Corn Rows and Hair Wraps and more extensive styles

If you are looking for braids that are a little more prominent, then hair wraps and corn rows are a good choice. These are a great way to have a whole new style.

Hybrid Braid Styles

You can also do multiple variations on these styles. Some people have chosen to go with partial corn rows while leaving their current style in place.
