Loose braiding hair extensions are attached at the root of the hair using a cornrow method. As the stylist cornrows, he or she branches (pulls out) strands of hair with every couple strokes. Hence the name "treebraids". The branched out strands give the illusion of freeflowing extensions. This method is great for those who love the ease of braids without the "braid" look. This is a great protective style that requires little to no maintenance.
