Awesome Braid Styles

Whether you want a professional office look or a flirty date night ensemble, you can never go wrong with braiding. The styles are as versatile as they are trendy. Here are a few braid styles you ought to try out.

The Braided Bun

Buns can elevate any ensemble to make it look chic and classy. A braided bun is no exception, provided it’s expertly done. To achieve this look, partition your hair into three parts such that the middle section is thicker than the other two. Neatly braid each section then roll the middle part into a low-hanging bun. Afterwards, tuck the two remaining sections above and below to have a fuller symmetrical bun. This is a very simple, yet elegant, style that comes in handy when running late.

Topknot with French Braids

Very few things beat the discomfort of having hair sticking onto a sweaty neck during the warmer months. It’s in such moments that we seek solace in true-and-tried up-dos such as the top-knot. While efficient, a typical top-knot just won’t cut it if you’re hoping to turn heads; hence the added twist of a french braid.

Start by stooping your neck downward to allow your hair to fall to the front of your head. French braid beginning at the nape of your neck till you reach the top of your ears. Once this is done, secure your hair into a high ponytail with elastic bands. Finish the look by wrapping the loose hanging hair around the base and hold it in place with bobby pins. If there are any stray hairs at the top or sides, make use of a pomade to put them in place.

Milkmaid Braid

For such a humble name, this style has exceeded expectation by gracing many runways around the globe. Perhaps even more modest than the name is how simple it is to braid. Begin by dividing your hair into two equal parts on a longitudinal axis. Detangle each section with a brush and braid each side neatly. Fasten both ends with an elastic band to prevent them from coming undone. Next, take one of the sections and run it over your head, pinning it to the opposite side. Do the same with the other section and you’ll be ready to go.

Braided crown

The bohemian crown evolved from a garland of flowers to a fully woven headband. This style is a tad more challenging to execute but well worth the reward. Take a reasonable sized amount of texturizing cream and run it through your damp hair. This will get rid of all frizz and prevent strands from flying away. Commence by French braiding a 2-inch portion of your hair just above your right ear around your head till you come back to the starting point. Next, braid the remaining section into a typical plait that’s not affixed to your head. Once complete, fasten the ends with an elastic band. Take the regular braid and place within the inner outline of the French braid holding it in position with bobby pins.

Of course, you don’t have to do the braiding by yourself. You can always opt to have the experts do it for you. The result will be worth the effort, and the cost.
