One of the best hairstyles for women of color is braids. There are so many braid hairstyles that women love to do. But the most popular braid styles are box braids, twists, and cornrows. These braids are done by using artificial hair extensions called kanekalon hair.
Although most people prefer to use black hair extensions for their braids, it is not the only option out there. Kanekalon hair extensions come in so many different colors including blonde, brown, blue, red, auburn, pink, green, purple and so many more.
So if you are someone who would rather prefer colorful braids, then there are endless possibilities for you. You can opt for one color or a mix of two or more colors. Also, there are different ways to braid colored hair. See below for some colored hair braids hairstyles.

The top part of the braids is done with black hair and once it gets to the middle, it is continued with the second color, this gives the braids an ombre finish. You can also simply use ombre braiding hair in your preferred color.
