Definition: A braided hairstyle where the braids are attached to the scalp in rows. Usually beginning at the hairline and directed back or side-to-side, hair is picked up and added to the braid as the braider works on each section. The name "cornrows" refers to the straight rows of braids that resemble straight rows of corn. Cornrows are often seen in simple styles that start at the front of the head and go straight back, but can also be formed in intricate, curvy or zigzag styles.
