20 Ethiopian Braids Hairstyles to Try This Year
Albaso is the name of the customary ceremonial hairdo worn by the Tigrinya ethnic group in Ethiopia and Eritrea. It is worn on important days like weddings, baptisms, and circumcisions.
The albaso braid, also known as an Ethiopian braid or a Habesha braid, is typically made up of seven broad braids that flow backward until the end flares out like a ball of hair.
In a nutshell, the Ethiopian hairstyle is divided into two main sections: the cornrows or braids that run from the front of the head to just under half of it, and the coil of hair that runs down the back.
Even though the original Albaso braids had seven braids, there are now countless variations that can be created depending on the stylist’s imagination.
