No longer are the days where braids conjure thoughts of Heidi, Little House on the Prairie and, for those of us who may be just a wee bit older, Pippy Longstockings. Braids are making a comeback so big this year, it’s completely twisted!
From a standard three-strand plait to timeless and feminine Dutch and French braids, braids can be adapted for work or play and suit just about any occasion. For instance, want the perfect hair style for a wedding or prom? Braids can turn a classic up-do into a vintage work of art. Crown braids and halo braids (which are similar, just situated a bit higher) are also both perfect for fancy events, will make you feel like royalty and show off those gorgeous earrings you just purchased!
Braided buns are an excellent look for work. A high braided pony is a gorgeous, as well as durable fashion accessory for a night out. Want to go boho? Go with a fishtail braid or even a double fishtail braid.
Romance is in the air and in your hair with waterfall braids, which create a delicate, free-flowing effect; a side braid is chic and flattering for most face shapes; and a simple braid down the back will perfectly complement Ombre color transitions.
Plus, braids aren’t just a beautiful hair style. Braids are an effortless way to disguise bad hair days; they are a great way to shorten your morning prep time; and they can protect your hair from the effects of humidity…which is pretty much a necessity here in Florida.
