10 Gorgeous Fulani Braids

Fulani or Fula is an ethnic group residing in many countries throughout West Africa but primarily in Nigeria, Mali, Guinea, Cameroon, Senegal, and Niger.  The Fulani is the largest nomadic group of people in the world with a population between 20-25 million. Fula women traditionally wear their long hair in five braids, a coiffure in the middle, and beads or cowrie shells decorated throughout. It is not uncommon that the braids will hang or be looped on the sides. Attaching silver coins is a family tradition passed through generations of women and young girls for aesthetic purposes. Below are Fulani inspired braids that mimic the forward facing cornrows near the ears with hair jewelry and center braid.
