Look who landed in Rio de Janeiro for the 2016 Olympics and are sporting braids: Track star Allyson Felix and tennis G.O.A.T. Serena Williams. They both are wearing very cute box braids (not boxer braids), the ultimate protective, no fuss style. Perfect for athletes!
They are called box braids because the hair is parted into a box before extensions are braided in, individually.
