In addition to being a memorable presenter, Stephanie is most famous for her flawless hairstyles. Even though she often sports straight long hair, she is known for her gorgeous braids. Each time she posts a new picture with her hair all braided and beautiful, we drop everything and bask in her beauty.
It was very hard to narrow our choice to such a small number of styles. Somehow, we managed to focus on only five of them. Here are top five Stephanie Coker braid styles that we adore.
Box braids are one of the most popular hairstyles among Nigerian women. Even though this style is a seemingly simple three-strand braid, it looks absolutely amazing. Stephanie often sports big box braids adorned with various beads and rings.
You can often see her with this look at various red carpet events. However, she often opts for box braids when chilling at home or hanging out with her husband or friends.
Senegalese twists are a very popular crochet twist hairstyle. To achieve the Senegalese twists look, people wrap synthetic hair to the roots of their natural hair and twist it to the end in two strands.
You can often catch Stephanie wearing her hair in Senegalese twists. She also often goes for Marley or Havana twists. The main difference between these styles is the hair. Unlike the Senegalese twists, the other two types require the use of rough-textured hair. Either way, Stephanie pulls them off flawlessly.
Tree braids/micro braids
Tree braids are a method of attaching hair extensions to the natural hair by braiding it near the roots in tiny strands and letting it fall the rest of the way. Micro braids are almost the same, only the extensions are usually braided all the way to the end.
Even though this style is very time-consuming, the result is always worth it. Stephanie does not go for this hairstyle often, bun when she does it looks incredible.
Yarn braids is the umbrella term for all kinds of braids (twists, faux dreadlocks or regular braids) when people use yarn instead of hair extensions. Most of the yarn braids are very bright and colourful, but some women choose to go for simple black ones.
Stephanie loves to try different colours for her yarn braids. So far, she has been seen wearing green, grey, blue, black, red and purple braids. Quite soon, she would have all the colours of the rainbow!
And last, but not least, let’s look at Ghana braids. Some call them didi braids or banana cornrows for their volume. These begin with simple cornrows and end with braids or twists. Stephanie Coker has absolutely mastered this style. Both times we saw her wear this style, we were stunned by her braiding skills. She always makes it look so easy!
Today we highlighted only five of Stephanie Coker’s wonderful braided hairstyles. However, the Crochet Queen has many more ideas for crochet hair. She often post pictures on her Instagram page, showcasing her latest crochet braids.
