OK, the title might be a little misleading but for the sake of people searching for this relatively new “trend,” we’ve given the term “boxer braid” a little leeway.

As many of you probably know, boxer braids are actually just double french braids rebranded for some silly reason. While the new moniker does sound catchy, we’ll still always refer to them as “double french braids” or “cornrows” ’cause that’s how it’s been forever. Here, 60 boxer braid hairstyles that are surprisingly versatile and undeniably chic.
