What was the number one accessory your mom used in adorning your hair? Beads, eh?

How to Wear Braids with Beads

To achieve this coiffure, your hairstylist will first install your braids, then attach the beads to them at the ends of your hair. They’ll also use a rubber band to secure the beads to your hair or singe the tips of your hair extension after putting the beads.

Another thing to note about this hairstyle is that you don’t have to use those colorful beads you used as a child.

You’ve grown past them. Besides, they may give you a child-like look that won’t suit your personality.

So, go for cool, regal beads. Neutral-colored ones will work better. And they can be of any size so long as it suits your taste.

Furthermore, these beads come in different shapes. For instance, you can get cowries beads, oval beads, round beads, etc. Whichever shape they come in, they’ll do justice in adding accents to your hair.
