Hair braiding has been around for as long as 30,000 years. About 25,000 years ago, Venus of Brassempouy was believed to be wearing braids in her hair. It is also thought that Venus of Willendorf may have had braided hair some 25,000 to 28,000 years ago, but some believe she may have been wearing a woven basket instead. Braids weren't used solely as a hairstyle in some areas. In fact, braids were used to communicate certain things about an individual, such as whether they were at an age where they could be courted, were already married or were in mourning. Today, braids are a popular hairstyle that many enjoy. This video shows one unique style of hair braiding that looks just lovely.
