#1 Front Row Style
# 2 Tight Top
Why settle for one braid when you can have many? In this picture, four rows of tight braids have been created with the longer hair on top and tied in a simple fold over the bun.
# 3 Up and Over
For this unique hairstyle, the hair has been divided with a center parting and each side has been Dutch braided. The two braids meet at the back of the head where they are joined together.
# 4 Ball Of Box Braids
Long box braids sit above an undercut in this picture and they have been collected at the back of the head and twisted into a neat, round man bun.
# 5 Dutch Braid
This style is called a Dutch braid and it can be easily identified because it looks as though the braid sits on top of the hair. Here, a single braid runs down the center of the head into a high bun.
# 6 Precision Locks
A loose French braid has been fashioned using his longer top locks. The hair has been combed back precisely into the style and the ends are tucked away at the back.
# 7 A Little On The Side
Slicking back your hair into a bun keeps it looking neat and out of the way, but why not jazz it up a bit by adding some small braids alongside the parting like this guy?
# 8 Signature Style
A pompadour look (height over the forehead) has been combined with braiding to create a signature style. The hair has been brushed up and back and a small tight braid was added on the side.
# 9 Great Expectations
Dutch braids can help add height to a hairstyle as we see in this example. A large braid runs the length of the head and is tied up into a man bun at the back.
# 10 Colored Locks
A little bit of color can make a hairstyle pop and this is a great example. The hair has been shaded in a dark to light ombre starting with black and fading into white. Then it was Dutch braided from front to back.
# 11 From The Bottom Up
While most undercuts come up to the crown this style allows for a V-shaped section of long hair at the back. This hair has been braided from the bottom up and tied into a fold over the bun.
# 12 Fashion Time
In this picture the hair has been fashioned into long, thin box braids and these have been pulled back and tied into a messy man bun – a very sexy, laid back style.
# 13 Sexy Sections
Here the hair has been separated into three sections; a wider section down the middle with two smaller ones on each side. Each of these has been tightly French braided and pulled back, along with the rest of the hair, into a wide bun.
# 14 Braids Of All Sizes
For this hairstyle, different size braids have been used. It starts with a tight thin Dutch braid on the side, followed by a larger one and then repeated again.
# 15 Super Neat
To create this pristine hairdo the hair has been fashioned into multiple braids that run from front to back and end with a twist over man bun.
# 16 Stark Sides and Black Braids
In this look the hair is shaved bald along the sides, drawing attention to the dark coloured locks on top. These strands have been sectioned and Dutch braided, ending with a high pony.
# 17 Braids and Buns
Thick hair can be difficult to manage, but as we see here a braid takes care of that in no time. This is a thick inverted French braid tied with a round bun at the back.
# 18 Ocean Twist
Here we see hair that has been combed out finely and braided from front to back. The one-half of the hair has been coloured in bright blue shades and that makes this hair really stand out!

With patience and skill, even short hair like this can be braided to provide a loose but tidy style with a small bun at the back.
# 21 Master Styling
Amazing patterns can be created using braids – turning your hair into a masterpiece. This look was designed using tight rows of interlinked Dutch braids.

# 23 So Sauvé
Dapper meets braids and it’s definitely a winner. Here we see a carefully graded undercut along the sides with two super neat French braids.
# 24 It’s All About The Spacing
When it comes to braids the more equally spaced they are the better. This hairstyle looks perfectly uniform with its rows of Dutch braids and a tight bun.
# 25 Sharp Angles
Inverted French braiding has been used to create four angled rows of braids that join together to form a high man bun.
The calculations are in: man bun plus man braid equals an uber fashionable hairstyle. There are plenty of tutorials online about braiding so start practising and growing out those locks. Then get ready to slick it back, plait it, secure it in a man pony, and to be admired everywhere you go!
