This is an interesting take on braid style. This guy is busting out with the temp fade, undercut with a nice healthy looking braid duo. He looks like he is from the future like from the film Total Recall or some dystopian future where the world is dark all the time and people are cruising around in flying cars.

They live in high rises that go up into space and the cigarettes are much shorter like in the film the Fifth Element. What do you think the future will be like? Let’s say in 50 years.

Cornrow to a Man Bun Braids for Men

All the way down the cornrow and into a man bun at the back. I don’t think I have seen this hairstyle before but I like it. Braids are a great way of putting up your hair when it’s time for action. Action such as sport or physical exercise. Braids will keep the hair out your face while your doing graffiti or smoking a jay.


Big Box Braids for Men

The box braid is named because of the square or box it leaves at the base of the skull after the braid is tied off. It is part of the look and would look at this dude in the above image. That’s one crazy set of hair. Crazy in a good way though. He has some big ol, badass box braids and a straight fringe.

The gold or almost ginger works well with his dark complexion and really accentuates his features. The person who done these braids has some serious skill as you can see from the uniformity and tightness. This hairstyle would have taken some serious time to complete.

The golden caramel locks reflect the light and beam smiles onto the faces passers by while projecting thoughts of caramel eclairs into their brains.



Crazy Braids for Men

Get creative and get loco with these braid patterns. Wow this is out of this world. Who would have though braids could get so detailed and artistic. People amaze me everyday with their skill to take a simple concept and take it to the edge.

Take the skateboard for example. People started off riding a stick on wheels. Fast forward fifty years down the track they are jumping them in the air and doing crazy flip tricks. Human’s are amazing creature with unlimited potential. These braids are a testament to that.

No matter how advanced robots get they will never replace the human spirit and our will and perseverance to go to the next level. We rock.


High Fade Tight Braids for Men

This chap is rocking a sweet look. He has the tight braids going on with the high fade. This is a low maintenance hairstyle that will suit a person with an active lifestyle and doesn’t want to spend half an hour in the mirror getting ready every morning. All you have to do is wake up, run your hands through your hair and you’re good to go.

You can pair this with a temp fade as well. If you feeling a bit sassy why not add some tracks or a design in there too. Your hair can be a part of expressing yourself. Bring your personality to light with a fun haircut.



WTF Braids for Men

I don’t even know what to call this hairstyle but it’s a work of art. It’s hairstyle mastery at it’s finest. The braids vary in width and texture to create depth and dimension. It’s something different that will separate this man from the pack.

I love the lines the braids leave on the skull. The person who did these braids must really know what their doing. It’s some seriously tidy work and this man is a lucky dude to have found someone who can work such magic. It must have taken a long time.

I don’t think I would have the patience to sit still for that long and that is why I would rock the fade with the short tight braids.


What are French Braids for Men?

French braids are a type of weave that intricately weaves the hair together to create a beautiful braid. It’s one of the original braids and is the starting point for most of these crazy, cool designs featured on the list.

If you would like to give french braids a go, have look on YouTube there is abundance of tutorials and it’s surprisingly easy to do. Of course the more intricate designs require a certain amount of skill. But like everything in life practice makes perfect. Have you got what it takes to be a braid specialist. Yes you do you just have to master the art. If you’re passionate and hungry you will go far with whatever you do.


Badass Cornrows and French Braids for Men

Cornrows and french braids coexisting in harmony on the one head. It’s a testament to the hairdresser and to racial harmony. Just like the black and white cookie. Two opposite flavors residing on the on cookie in peace. If only the world could be more like that.

People should look to the cookie or braids for a prime example how people can live together without the need for blood shed or violence. I guess it does exist somewhere in the multiverse in the perfect world that people talk about.

One can’t help but wonder if money is responsible for most of the divide between people. Of course religion does and the holding grudges would account for some of that as well.
Let’s just say that you were grandfather was shot by a mexican and your parents held a grudge, then they passed their grudge down to you. It’s a never ending cycle.

Somebody has to stand up and say enough is enough. It was just one bad apple out of an entire race of people. Bad apples come in all shapes, sizes and colors.



Mohawk Braids for Men

Yeah yeah. This is a cool style. This punk is rocking the braid hawk with style and grace. I love the intricate geometrical patterns at the base of the skull. He has a super high that could almost be classed as an undercut.

It would be interesting to see what his looks like when it’s not in braids. Anyway this is a magical hairstyle kind of like a unicorn in the form of the a man. Maybe not. But it’s a nice thought don’t you think.


Lightning Bolt Braids for Men

The god of thunder and lightning is looming upon us in the form of man with braids for days. The lightning bolts are the cherry on top. But I can’t forget to mention the sweet temp fade that goes down to those super slick side burns. This hairstyle is very creative, fun, and a unique take on braids in a bunch.

Not the Brady bunch though. They should have made a T.V show called the Braidy Bunch and and it was about a family of African Americans who owned a barber shop and they had sweet braids and worked in the shop all day. Crazy characters would roll in and get their hair done and that’s where the comedy would come from.

It would be better than the lame T.V show full of clean cut white people doing boring shit.


Enter the Void Braids for Men

The top of this man’s head looks the gateway to another dimension. Would you dare to enter the void? I think I would. This planet is cool but there is so much more to explore and so much more to life than sitting in the one spot.

Enter the Void to find your true self. I feel that we are always trying to fill a void with something. Whether it be booze or drugs or braids or shopping. Once we realize that external stimuli doesn’t fill the void and that we can fill it by searching within the world will be a better place. Well, hopefully anyway.

When you are feeling out of place take a quiet moment to meditate and explore the inner workings of your mind. You would be surprised at the results.


My Little Pony Braids for Men

Saddle this man up and take him to the round up. He is rocking the pony inspired braids. All he needs is some neon colors in there and he could joint the gang. They might even make his own action figure so little girls across the globe can comb his hair and gallop around their rooms.

If you’re bored of your same old mohawk this could be a style for you. Mix it up and get funky, braid you hair like a pony and ride on into the sunset with head held high and your rag top down.



Cross Over Braids for Men

Check out the style on this badass. The cross over braids look amazing and he has that Rasta bun at the back.

Rasta is short for Rastafarian which is a Jamaican religion that believes that where god was buried a weed plant grew. They celebrate their religion by smoking weed and playing music. One of the most famous Rasta’s was Bob Marley. One of the best reggae front man to date and he will forever be remembered for his music and his message. Now for some wise words from Bob Marley.

“If you’re white and you’re wrong, then you’re wrong; if you’re black and you’re wrong, you’re wrong. People are people. Black, blue, pink, green – God make no rules about color; only society make rules where my people suffer, and that why we must have redemption and redemption now.” -Bob Marley-

Uni Braids for Men

The uni braid is a single braid running down the back of this man’s head. I just coined that term but I’ll let you use it if you like. You can pay me royalties down the track. Let’s not let money get in the way of a good time.

He rocking a fishtail braid and it’s called that because the sections look a little bit like fishtails. This is a cool look that has been adopted by Caucasian hippies across the globe. He has the most of his hair cut short and then grew a hella big rats tail at the back so he could braid it up to the nines.




Your Hair is Your Crown and You are the King

For the king is the one who wears the crown and this guy is taking to the next level and rocking out the his hair in the shape of crown. Rejoice for the king is here to save the day with his braids he will keep the dragons at bay and protect the city with his powerful ways.

The cornrows are a nice touch. This list is full of amazing braid styles but most of them look like they would take ages to do. It turns me off a little. One day when I learn the art of patience I will get me some braids. I will sit in the chair until the jobs done then strut down the street with my freshly done braids.

When they come and try to destroy the woods this guy pounces for he is an eco warrior and protects the environment at all cost.

On his down time you find him in a bush doof taking pills and dancing to psy trance in Australia with his elf friends. A doof is a clandestine rave held in the middle of now where in bush in Australia. Usually you get the coordinates a few hours before the event. Then you walk through the jungle and pull a shrub away and there it is. A bunch people with a huge sound system dancing and having fun.
