While cornrows has been synonymous within Hip Hop culture , evident by the countless amount of rappers with braids , the same holds true when it comes to R n B artists.
Prior to Brent we have seen the style previously sported on black male singers such as R Kelly, Trey Songs and Omarion.
At this point Brent is just following tradition and how could you blame him. The style suits him well, offers a different look in comparison to his buzz cut days and is a great protective hairstyle.
Cornrows Side Parting
The beauty of the cornrows is their ability to be worn in multiple different styles and patterns. Brent can be seen alternating between the traditional straight lines and the side cornrows with a middle parting.
This is a subtle change in appearance while it offers a completely different look
Afro Blow Outs
The blow out can be seen all throughout Brent’s social media page.
This is normally achieved with the use of oils and a blow dryer. Hair is sectioned, picked with an afro comb and blow dried out which further increases the hair volume and length.
Brent will largely be remembered for his buzz cut as that was the style he wore during the earlier phase of his career.
The buzz cut continues to be a go to look for men. Offering a masculine appearance which is relatively low maintenance. While we don’t imagine to see him cut his hair anytime soon we will always remember his low trim and fade.
Tips to maintain Cornrows
Brent Faiyaz braids go through a thorough process to ensure they stay healthy and clean all year round. This is what enables his length, thickness and hair growth. We have listed the main tips to include in your routine to achieve the same results.
Constantly moisturize your scalp
Your scalp is an extension of your skin, and you wouldn’t leave the house with your skin unattended to, so don’t do this to your scalp. This can be as simple as spraying rose water daily or any light water based spray.
Oil your Scalp
Oil helps in scalp health and is vital for thick hair growth and as you can see Brent’s hair is very thick. Certain oils that help promote thickness are olive oil and coconut oil.
Protect your hair while sleeping with a Durag
Protecting your hair is very important and you want to ensure that your hair is protected as you move around in your sleep during the night. Not only does it control your hair frizz but cotton has been known to dry afro hair, this is why we advise you to protect it at night.
If you prefer not to, you have the option to sleep with a silk pillowcase.
