For quite a while, braids have been on an upward trend. Braids have taken over the red carpet and runways, and now braids are taking the bridal hairstyle by storm! Modern brides are trading in their traditional formal do for less traditional braided styles.
Styles range from subtly romantic to elegant sheek and everything in between. We have seen fishtail braids, waterfall braids, French braids, headband braids, around-the-world braids, braided updo’s, messy braids, and more! Braids are fresh and youthful and these styles are a fun way to be out with the old and in with the new!
I have noticed more of my clients requesting braids be incorporated into their style. I have to say, I am loving it! Braids are a great way to add fun to any style and bring a little bit of youth! Braided hairstyles can be dressed up or down and add a punch of fun to any look. Most are easy to create, and some can be done with wet or dry hair. Styles can be worn bohemian, messy, and formal. There are so many to choose from.
Check out some of these popular styles below, I even included some how-to’s from YouTube for you to practice with!
