Hi I am a guy currently with shaggier hair. I really want to get cornrows. Also, my goal length is mid back and when I reach that I would like to do all sorts of braids. U know french braids, braided pigtails, etc. Any suggestions on braiding guys hair? IT would be a great help?

Are you asking how to do it yourself? You can check this site for tips and pics of styles

http://cornrowstyles.ihiphop.com/?p=25

If that doesn't help I know there are youtube videos on how to braid/cornrow.  You can practice on yourself, I'm in the process of learning myself lol.  For me its the hardest to start them off, get the tight @ the beginning.

Thanks Princess. Im glad to see you are learning to braid as well. To answer your question someone else will be doing my cornrows for me and the french braid once its really long. I will just be doing the braided pigtails or side braid. Make it easy on me haha. How long is your hair?

Pburgh, I think you should grow your hair as long as you can get it.  Lower back would be awesome!  I hope mine can get that long!  I regularly wear mine in braided pigtails, and I love it.  (I'm a guy.)  So far I haven't gotten any bad reactions.  I've heard that cornrows can be damaging; I'd hold off on those if I were you, even though they look great.

I have, I'm going to grow out my hair as long as it can get until I get sick of it lol. I haven't had my hair longer than MBL in the longest.  I don't know much about rope braids are they like 2 strand twists?

Or micro-braids w/ extensions or just regular box braids with extensions for added fullness.
