Allen Iverson is an NBA legend from Virginia who was famous for his basketball skills and hairstyles.
Iverson braids follow the style of cornrows while incorporating several patterns to create a unique look.
Iverson braids work best with curly, coily, kinky, and textured hair.
The Allen Iverson braids take inspiration from the traditional cornrow braids worn by the Black community.
These tight braids are used as a protective style for people with curly, coily, and textured hair. Cornrows are meant to protect the hair from loss of moisture and breakage.
