7 Best Braided Hairstyles to Try
Braids add the much-needed texture and style element to your otherwise boring hair. Many feel that braids only refer to the conventional plait, and that it makes them look old-fashioned. However, that is a myth and must be broken right away! There are way too many interesting braided hairstyles to try, which not only make you red-carpet ready, but add a different kind of charm to your face cut and attire altogether. Here are some of the best-braided hairstyles to try.
1. Side-slung fish braid
Combine the conventional side slung ponytail with a fish braid, and put in a few bobby pins here and there to adjust the extra strands. This kind of hairstyle can go with casual dresses, and even with a jeans and t-shirt. It’s best to avoid feeling hot, and save on managing your hair in a windy weather.
2. Crown braid
This one has many different variations to it, and you must have often seen stars sporting this hairstyle with their red carpet gowns. It looks uber-chic and is a great way to give your conventional bun a nice, braided twist.
3. Messy braided bun
A braided bun or a messy bun? Well, no need to choose when you can have both! Make a braid and pull out the extra strands to give a rough and messy effect. Then tie it up into a bun, and pull out more extra strands if need be. This look goes well with gowns, some casual dresses, and with a shorts and spaghetti outfit.
4. Mohawk braid
This is the kind of braid that starts from the nape of the neck and runs along the center of the head, giving a Mohawk kind of feel. You can line up two or three braids along each other, and pin them up with spike clips or something funky. This will go well with all your funky and rock show outfits.
