Different Ways to Do Braids

Braids are one of the easiest hairstyles to pull off and they look great on all face shapes. Braids are good to keep hair off the face, great for on the go, or just if you’re tired of having your hair down. There are a wide variety of braids that you can choose from depending on your hair texture, length of hair and personal style. Tiny braids all over create a carefree, bohemian look and are perfect for a lazy, weekend afternoon. They also provide a cool texture to your hair as well.

A crown of braids is cute for a milkmaid or romantic look. Make two braids and pin them up and around the crown or braid on each side and pull around the back. If you don't braid all of your hair, keep the rest loose and add in some soft curls for an extra girly look. You will want to try to keep this specific look symmetrical, but when it comes to braids almost anything goes, so play up the imperfections.

A great work look is to pull your hair into a braided ponytail and then wrap it into a bun. It gives more of a polished “done” look to an otherwise messy updo or loose bun. It’s an easy hairstyle that makes it look like you’ve taken a longer time on your hair than you actually have. This is a perfect style for when you’re running short on time and can't (or don't want to) blow dry your hair. Slightly damp hair helps pull the ponytail and braid tighter for a sleeker finish.

Finally, a side braid takes no time at all for an instant style pick me up. It’s can be casual or a little bit glam. You can also tie in a ribbon or use a hairpin as a fun accessory or go mermaid with a fishtail style. Really the way you braid your hair is up to you, but it’s fun to practice and a good go-to the next time you aren’t sure what to do with your hair.
