What are cornrows?
are commonly called cornrows. This hairstyle involves sectioning the hair and then forming a braid that is connected to the scalp in each section. Sometimes beads or other types of ornaments are added to make such hairstyles more attractive.
With cornrows, however, the sections are usually long. A single braid begins in one place and follows the course of the outlined section as it is connected to the head. A cornrow braid only dangles at the end. For example, if the hair is sectioned in rows from the hairline to the middle of the head, the cornrow will be flat along the way and will only hang loosely after it has passed the outlined midsection.
