This way, your head will look like a whirlpool. This cornrow braid style catches general attention, since the more curves you get the cooler you look.
- Angled Cornrows. The angled cornrow braid style is very similar to the traditional cornrow. In fact it only changes a specific simple thing: cornrows are not straight but they’re set in diagonal. This means that the cornrows will not be pulled to the back but they’ll be pulled to the sides. You can make some variations to this style by pulling the cornrows to opposite sides, so as to create a fun look, for example. As long as you keep the “angles” you can improve it any way you want.

It consists on crossing the cornrows one by one, passing them over each other separately. You’ll have many rhombus shapes on your head, and this will give you a unique and distinctive look.
