These are cornrows
Although they've been misrepresented as boxer braids by mainstream media and non-black celebrities, these beauties are actually factually called cornrows. This iconic, classic style features hair that is braided into various rows and patterns.
The style on the far left is not a protective style
Yes, it's a super fly haircut. But no, it's not a protective style, which typically protects your hair from frequent overmanipulation and potentially damaging elements like cold, dry weather.
This tool is used for all of the above
You already know! A toothbrush is a must-have in every black girl's hair arsenal. The best part? It's hella cheap and multi-purpose AF.

The Bronner Bros. Beauty Show typically happens twice a year in February and August in Atlanta, Georgia. However, the show will take place in March and August in 2019 to avoid conflicting with the Superbowl, which will be in Atlanta.
4C is NOT in the original hair typing system
Yes, 4C is a very popular hair type now. But it actually wasn't in the original system, which hair industry veteran Andre Walker debuted in 1998. "People have added to the system since then because they feel that there are textures that aren’t included, such as 3C, 3D, 4C, and 4D, which is fine," Andre told BuzzFeed. "I only created a basic system to help people better identify their hair textures."
