A crochet braid is a super stylish hairstyle that involves crocheting hair extensions into your natural hair with a crochet hook. Also known as a latch-hook braid, this style is very similar to weaves and is perfect for women who are looking to give a break to their natural hair from all the braiding and twisting.
To create crochet hairstyles, your hairstylist will loop artificial hair extensions through your natural hair with the help of a crochet needle (or something similar). Since this style uses synthetic hair, you can choose any type of hair texture you like – from a bouncy bob to voluminous curls.
