Fed up of poker-straight hair or unruly curly hair? Now is the perfect season to revamp your hair and experiment with new hairdos with these unconventional braids.
Besides being a classic, braid hairstyles are versatile and easy to pull off with any hair length and texture. They add a touch of romance and are practical for any season.
If you are feeling a little adventurous and you want to sport a new look, here are ten of the trendiest and easy hair braids you can try.
For starters, spice up the classic French braid by making it double! Part your hair just in the middle from your forehead to your nape and divide it into two equal sections.
Take the first section and do the classic braid by weaving three tiny parts from top to bottom and use a hair-tie to secure it.
Repeat the same on the other side, and then you have your classic double French braid!
To upgrade a single braid hairdo, twist half of your hair in a loose bun and pin it up. Then take a section of hair behind your ear and make a three-strand braid. Let it hang over your shoulder to get a casual, hippie vibe.
For a Bohemian romantic chic braid, divide the hair into upper and lower sections behind you: one above and one below your ears to the nape.
Loosely braid each part in any style and twist them together.
Secure it with a hair-tie and wrap a scarf that suits your style to hide the rubber band.
This hairdo is perfect both for short and long hair, and you can try it on straight or curled hair. It is also ideal for those trying to grow out their bangs or hide oily hair.
You can get this look by making three tiny fishtail braids above your forehead and connecting them on the crown of your head while leaving the rest of the hair to blend.
Secure it with a clear hair-tie or accessories with trendy hair clips.
This style is similar to the double French braid, but you can style it further by adding a low bun. Loosen the braids, secure it with a hair-tie, and roll it in a loose bun at the end of your hairline.
Wrap the ends of your hair around it and secure it with bobby pins for a chic, fun, and clean style.
To make your double braids look thicker, tease the roots above your ears and your crown. Then make two loose braids above your ears while leaving the rest of the hair.
To add more volume, loosen strands of hair from the braid before tying it and twist some hair around the hair-tie to cover it and secure it with a hair clip.
Give your regular ponytail a gorgeous lift by braiding it. Do this by first tying your hair as high as possible, in the center between your ears. Tease it with a hairbrush or add volume with a hairspray.
Next, make a French or Dutch braid and loosen it for more volume, then secure the tips with a transparent hair-tie and leave it loose.
To add dimension to a side-parted hair by making a side braid. Depending on the type of braid you like, start at an inch away from your mid-forehead then end it on the opposite side.
This braid looks innocent yet flirty. It also keeps hair away from your face and makes you look fresh.
Create a messy but stylish ponytail by adding a twisted side braid. Start the braid from a side parting and twist it towards your ponytail and tie it together. Loosen some strands of hair to frame your face and tease around the hair-tie for an effortless look.
Lastly, you can try the milk braids by starting the braid from above your ear and moving from behind towards the other ear. Braid it till the tip and pull it over to the other side to create a crown and pin it behind your ear.
Then leave some strands around your face for a casual look or keep the braids tight for a more formal up-do. Whichever braids you try, make sure you have fun with it!
