Be more with Abuja
Deriving its name from the capital city of Nigeria, Abuja is a popular style of braid hair extension. Abuja’s quality and texture are very close to that of African hair and that’s why they are widely used. Here are some quirky hairstyles you can create using Abuja braids.
1. Moody Bun
Speak with your bun. If you’re feeling happy and excited make a high bun. Sensing the ladylike vibes? Go for a low bun! Fix those bobby pins in your Abuja braids and fulfill all your creative desires. Check out these cute updo hairstyles for black women
