Hair braids are all the rage in fashion, and many women have incorporated them into one or more of their regular looks. Braids are simple and fairly easy to maintain and in most cases, require very little time and effort to be completed. If you are new to hair braiding, here are a few very easy hair braids that you can try out for yourself.
Mini Side Braid
If you are not a fan of braiding your entire head, then this style is for you. Simply braid a small portion of your hair and put it to the side of your head before securing with an elastic. Flowers and other decorative hair pieces can add more style to your look. This style is perfect if you want to do your hair quickly for a casual day out.
Braid in Braid
Regular braids can be a bit boring, and you may want to switch things up every now and then. This style is guaranteed to spice up your look and add a bit of glamour to your look. Create a small side braid and secure it with an elastic at the bottom. Take the remainder of your hair and braid it in a similar fashion. Weave the braids together to create a unique look and pull out a few hair strands to add volume. There is no need to decorate this style as it is quite stylish on its own.
Double French Braid
Perfect for long hair, this style won’t take too much of your effort to pull off. Simply split your hair into two sections and interweave each portion to create a stunning double French braid. The braids do not have to look symmetrical, and you can leave portions of them unbraided to create a wavy, voluptuous look. If you are not too keen on French braids, mixing in regular braids works just as well. In the event that you are not comfortable doing this style alone, you can always ask a friend for help.
This style is very elegant and perfect for formal events such as weddings. This style is relatively easy to do and requires interweaving three braided sections of your hair to create a beautiful waterfall effect. You can also look for tutorials online to help you get the desired look. Waterfall braids are perfect for rainbow colored hair as they create beautiful finished locks. Extensions can also be added to create a rainbow effect. Feel free to decorate with flowers or butterfly clips to make the style more elegant and princess-like.
Braids are perfect if you are looking to keep the hair out of your face or if you are looking for an elegant style to wear on a special occasion. Each of the styles mentioned above are easy to complete and will only require a little patience. Take care to brush your hair thoroughly to remove knots and tangles and add a good hairspray to your regimen for added volume. Have fun experimenting with these braids!
