There are a couple of ways to determine whether something — a hairstyle, a popular style of shirt, a designer shoe — is evolving into a full-fledged trend. First, you see it on Instagram. Next, you see it on the streets of SoHo. Then, you see it on Rihanna. Or, maybe it’s the other way around. Regardless, our favorite non-singing singer has recently put her bad gal stamp of approval on a protective hairstyle you’re probably already seeing everywhere: knotless box braids.
Unlike regular box braids, the knotless kind are, just that, knotless. There’s no bulge of hair stemming from the scalp, and instead the root is flat and smooth. This is due to what’s called the feed-in technique, which involves “adding braiding hair to the client’s natural hair as you go along, as opposed to adding it all at the beginning,” celebrity hairstylist Ursula Stephen, whose clients include Serena Williams, Zendaya, and, yes, Rihanna, tells Fashionista. Susy Oludele whose celebrity clients include Beyoncé, Solange and Princess Nokia, explains further that the stylist uses a three-strand method starting with your natural hair which is then intertwined with the extensions.
