    It doesn't make sense to trim your hair before you braid it since you're going to BC when you take it out.

    What I would do, if I were you, is BC my hair 1st then get box braids. That way, your hair will already be cut and you can wear the braids even longer. Instead of getting braids to protective style hair that will get cut off.
