A couple of weeks ago, our very own Leila talked excitedly about her beautiful Fulani braids. When I noticed the growing hair trend, I was reminded of singer Alicia Keys and her signature cornrows with two backwards cornrows on either side of her head. Now, ladies are taking the look to another level and are truly making Fulani braids their own. Here are 16 Instgrammers who are putting a unique spin on Fulani braids and killing it!


Love the all the textures in the look. 

Thank you @keyessentialshair for doing something different with my hair 💕💕💕☺️#essencefest
