Without a doubt, the best hairstyle for the rainy season is braids or cornrows.

You don’t have to worry about your weave or wig getting rained on and tangling or natural hair shrinking like a mother. With braids or cornrows, you’re good to go.

And with the current rains being experienced in parts of Kenya, we thought we should give you an idea of a style you can try out since sometimes, deciding on what to braid is not always the easiest task.

Back when Cardi B was a reality tv star, braids were her thing…she especially loved cornrow braids and tried out different styles.

You could also try with colored braids if you love to stand out.

The beauty of this updo is that it’s not limiting – it’s good enough for work, school, night out or a special occasion. When you need to spruce up your look, simply add some chunky earrings, a lil bit of makeup and as Cardi would put it, “Aprrroooooo you’re good to go hunny!”

Here’s a tutorial to help you achieve the style.

What do you think of the style? Yay or nay?
