As this hairstyle is both elegant and easy to do, it can be worn on just about any occasion. Whether you're on a vacation, at the office, or at a fancy event, the braid matches all your outfits. In everyday life, braids are ideal for a natural and romantic style. Combine it with a boho maxi dress, a tunic or a blouse and perfect your hippie look. The braided hairstyle in its wild and sexy way is ideal to accompany you to festivals. Lastly, braids are also very popular for weddings.
Many types of braids and variations exist which can be endlessly mixed and matched in order to achieve the hairstyle of your dreams. Let's check out some of them!
The classic braid is really easy to do, all you have to do is separate your hair into three equal strands and place the outer strand over the middle strand to place it in the center, alternating left and right. For a hippie touch, pull the edges a little to create some volume.
This beautiful bohemian two-strand braid is quite simple to achieve, once you get the hang of it. First of all, separate the hair in two sections of the same thickness, then, take a small strand from the outer edge of one of the strands and bring it over to the other strand. Next, repeat the process on the other side, alternating left and right. Once you have finished your fishtail braid, pull on the strands to loosen them a little and obtain some thickness.
To realize a French braid, we divide the hair into three equal parts and start with a classic braid. Then, unlike for a normal braid, we add an extra strand to the outer strand before passing it over the middle strand.
A variation named the Dutch braid, consists in proceeding exactly the same way as for the French braid, except that we will pass the outer strands below the middle strand instead of above.
We begin with a braid stuck on the top of the head up to about the ears, and then we proceed in the same way except that instead of incorporating hair in the strand below, we will drop the strand and replace it with a new strand at each time. You may continue the waterfall braid all the way around to the other ear to get a braided crown or you may stop earlier depending on your wishes.
To embellish your braids, do not hesitate to add some hairpins, clips or barrettes adorned with flowers, pearls, jewelry or feathers. In addition to holding your hair in place, it will add that extra boho touch. Transparent elastics are also practical so as not to weigh down your hair. You may also complete your hairstyle with a headband or a bohemian scarf. Consider hair jewelry such as rings that can be added along the length of a braid to enhance it.
Whether you have long, medium-length or short hair, braids are suitable for all hair types.
