Week Hair Inspiration: Hairstyles with Braids

Good Morning Beauties and Beaus,

I love trying different things and experimenting with my hair – and braided hairstyles are one of my faves: they are beautiful, easy to style and work for everyone. By the way, springtime is great for trying a new fresh look and braids are versatile: you can play them up or down and change it for any occasion. Also, some people hide their hair while having a bad hair day, I braid it!

There are so many different braid styles out there: from fishtails and dutch braids to milkmaids and waterfall… you name it! A plaint is an easy-to-achieve look that anyone can master perfectly. They have gotten so popular that there are even braid bars from New York to Hollywood.

If you have never tried braiding your own hair, the basis for almost every style is the classic French braid, this is one style that you should do perfect before moving to more advanced techniques like the one you can watch above. Hier is a very nice example of a classic French:

The Dutch braid,  aka reverse French, is a little more complicated than the french one, as the plaint seems to sit on top of your hair. If you want to give it a try, this is a nice DIY video:

There are so many beautiful braiding styles like the French Bun, the Double Braid, the Double Waterfall Braid, the Braidy Bun, Pony up, etc. Braids are one of those hair trends that just won’t quit – and I’m loving it! I hope you enjoyed the post today and have fun trying new things.

    it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing,

    My spouse and I absolutely love your blog and find nearly all of your post’s to
    be exactly I’m looking for. Do you offer guest writers to write content available for you?
    I wouldn’t mind producing a post or elaborating on a number of the subjects you write about here.
    Again, awesome blog!
