30 Half Fulani Tribal Braids Half Knotless Braids Hairstyles

Half Knotless Braids

Fulani tribal braids are characterized by straight back cornrows parted down the middle and often accessorized with beads; they originated in West Africa but have since spread throughout the continent.

Black braiders, as is their custom, are not afraid to try new techniques and designs.

As a result, classic looks are frequently updated with novel braid patterns, braiding methods, and length/size variations.

Even Fulani braids are in on the trend, with the modern interpretation characterized by crisscrossed cornrows with knotless braids at the back and freestyled stitch feed in braids at the front in the shape of a heart, star, or butterfly.

Essentially, it’s a combination of knotless braids and the traditional braids worn by women in Fulani culture.

What are Fulani Braids?

The Fulani are the original creators of the cornrow braided hairstyle known as Fulani Braids. There are now a plethora of Fulani braid styles to choose from, such as cornrows with a center part, straight back cornrows, and half tribal braids with curly hair at the back.

What is the difference between Fulani and tribal braids?

Neither is any different from the other. Tribal braids get their name from the Fulani people, an African ethnic group that has since spread across Western, Northern, and Central Africa.

How long do tribal braids last?

Depending on how well you care for your tribal braids, they can last anywhere from four to six weeks.

How much do tribal braids cost?

Tribal braid prices range from $150 to $350, and can even go higher if you have particularly long or intricate braids done.

How to do Fulani tribal braids with knotless braids at the back

Step one: divide your freshly washed, stretched hair into two sections. Seventy-five percent of hair should be in the back, and twenty-five percent in the front.

Knotless back braids or front stitch feed in cornrows are good places to begin.

Those who favor the former can achieve this look by sectioning off their hair and coating it in a thick layer of shine n jam. As is customary when creating knotless braids, begin braiding the hair and feed in the braiding hair as you go.

To finish the back, simply repeat the previous steps.

Stitch feed in front braids allow for a great deal of freedom in design, as was previously mentioned. Incorporate as many patterns as you like.

No matter the technique you choose, don’t be stingy with the shine n jam on your part lines. The smoother and lower you slick the part line, the more polished off you’ll appear.

Afterwards, you can lay the ends, apply the mousse, and then dip the braids in hot water to set the style (optional).
