Crochet braiding is a method of braiding hair or installing hair extensions that involve using a crochet hook in the hairstyling process. Crochet braids are also often referred to as “latch hook braids” and while they’re called this, crochet braids don’t necessarily have to be bonafide plaits—in fact, the name itself describes the method and technique of installation, rather than the outcome itself. Because of this, this type of hair installation system is extremely versatile! With crochet braids, you’re not limited to just getting a braided look, you can go for a variety of different styles whether you prefer the classic appearance of box braids or enjoy a head full of bouncy, loose curls, the choice is yours! If you’d like to learn a little bit about what the installation process for crochet braids looks like, we’ll give you a brief overview. Crochet braids will need a base to attach to, so after washing, conditioning, and drying your hair thoroughly, your stylist will tightly braid your hair back into cornrows until all of the hair has been braided down. The next step in the installation process involves actually attaching the extension pieces to the braided hair. Using a crochet hook, your stylist will take pieces of the extension hair and pull the hair through the cornrows to create a loop. They’ll then pass the ends of the hair through the looped end and pull it tightly, forming a knot. After that, each hair extension piece will be further secured by tying both ends of the hair together. This step is repeated until all the hair extension pieces have been successfully integrated into the natural hair. After that, if styling is necessary, your hair care professional may opt for additional supplementary steps like trimming any uneven ends or setting the hair with a mousse or pomade. Overall, crochet braiding certainly has its benefits. First and foremost, one of the reasons why crochet braids are so popular is that they are both heat-free and chemical-free, giving the natural hair a break from harsh substances. And in addition to there being so many different styles of crochet braiding to choose from, crochet braids only take a fraction of the time it takes to install many other similar protective hairstyles—only taking around ninety minutes to three hours to complete.  How do I choose the best service for crochet braids in Chicago?  Book the best of the best by scheduling your appointments on Booksy!
