Fulani braids are probably the hottest black hairstyle in 2017. If you’re not currently rocking this look, you’ve most likely seen someone rocking it because it’s that fly. If you wear your natural hair and you are looking for a cool, functional style, then this Fulani braids look is a must try. And frankly speaking, summer is here, which means for many of us it's mine to put our hair away and bring out the braids.

2. BRAIDED HIGH BUN
This look is one that probably takes the least amount of time because it’s created with jumbo braids. Six jumbo box braids in the back, three in the front, and two forward plaits on either side of her head. What’s nice about this look, beside it being quick to do, is it gives you a bit of flexibility since you can easily wear the braids up or down.
3. FULANI BRAIDS WITH CROWN
Here’s where things get a bit more complicated (but with a beautiful result). This style also has box braids in the back but pencil-width box braids, so there are a lot more of them. It also has the quintessential one cornrow in the vertical center of her head. And then two horizontal ones (one on each side) going from the side to the center.
If DIY Fulani braids aren’t your cup of tea, you can, of course, get the style done by a professional hairstylist.

As mentioned earlier, the braid pattern of Fulani Braids is what makes it distinct. There are four common elements to the pattern:
