    Crochet

    Youtube beauty vlogger IAMTRAEH is in the middle of installing some waist length crochet twists. Normally, this style would take hours, but crocheting the pre-made twists instead of individually installing hair guarantees a much quicker hairdo.

    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."

    Brandy is best known for rocking box braids

    Brandy is one of the first celebs to really showcase box braids on a global stage. She rocked the style on the cover on her self-titled debut album and her groundbreaking album Never Say Never and throughout her acting career (one word: Moesha!) Even though she's been switching up her hairstyles since then, Brandy will ALWAYS be #boxbraidgoals.

    A hot comb can be found in both hair salons AND household kitchens
