70 Trendy Fulani Braids Hairstyles For 2024

Originally from the Fulani tribe of West Africa (who are now dispersed across the Northern and Central parts of Africa too), Fulani tribal braids hairstyles are traditionally characterised by straight back cornrows parted down the middle often accessorised using beads.

As is always the tradition, black braiders are never ones to shy away from experimenting with different braiding styles and designs.

This often means that old styles are usually spruced up using new designs, braiding techniques and length/size variants.

Fulani braids haven’t been left behind and the new trendy way of doing Fulani braids features free-styled stitch feed in braids at the front with a love heart, star, butterfly or flip over design and beautifully done criss crossed cornrows with knotless braids at the back.

Basically half Fulani tribal braids and half knotless braids.

Before we get into the Fulani tribal braids tutorials, let’s answer some frequently asked questions.

What are Fulani braids?

Fulani braIds are a protective braided hairstyle that feature cornrows at the front and knotless braids at the back.

Why are they called Fulani braids?

Fulani braids were named after the Fulani tribe of West Africa who are currently dispersed across the Northern and Central parts of Africa. The hairstyle has since been passed down to different generations of women and cultures alike who have since made various modifications to date.

What is the difference between Fulani and tribal braids?

There’s no difference. Fulani is the name of the African tribe they’re named after. Fulani braids are therefore tribal braids.

How long do Fulani braids last?

Fulani braids can last for 4 to 6 weeks with proper maintenance in place.

How to do Fulani tribal braids with knotless braids at the back

Start by parting clean and stretched hair into 2 sections. The back section should have 3/4 of the hair and the front section 1/4 of the hair.

You can either start by doing the knotless braids at the back or the stitch feed in cornrow braids at the front.

If you prefer the former, part the hair into the desired size sections and apply a generous amount of shine n jam. Start braiding the hair and gradually feed in the braiding hair as you move along as is the norm in knotless braids.

Repeat the same process until you’re done braiding the back section.

As earlier mentioned, you can get as creative as you’d like with the stitch feed in braids at the front. Feel free to incorporate as many designs as you’d like.

Stitch cornrow braids can be done using various methods.

Depending on the method you’ll use, always remember to be generous with how much shine n jam you’re using on your parted lines. The more sleeked down the parted line is, the more neater it will look.

After you’re done with your stitch feed in braids, lay the edges, apply your mousse and dip the braids in hot water (optional).

If you want to incorporate the love heart braided design or the butterfly one and you don’t know how to do it, we’ve got you covered.
