Just because you have a braided hairstyle, this does not mean that you should not choose to have a shorter haircut. Box braid bobs are an increasingly popular choice for African-American women. The style is really cute and can look really professional as well. It is the ideal look for women who want to have it all.
Plaiting Box Braid Bobs
Box braid bobs can be styled using natural hair or synthetic hair extensions. If you want a natural bob, you will have to make sure that your hair is shoulder length before you begin to braid, as the hair will seem shorter once it has been plaited. It can take a long time to grow your hair to this length and you might need to relax it to make it more manageable. Some women find it easier to add special braided extensions to give their hair extra length.

Chunky box braids tend to hold their shape better than thinner braids do. This means they are perfect for women who want to maintain a more rounded style of bob.
#6: Half-Up Half Down
Change the shape, texture and volume of your bob hairstyle by pinning it so that it is half up and half down. Just take the top layer of your hair and pull it up towards the back of your head. Pin this in place whilst leaving the rest of the style down.
