Every black girl goes through a braid phase, and some never leave the braid phase. That’s because braids are always trendy, incredibly versatile, and offer more value for money than any other hairstyle for black girls. Even if you’re not blessed with edges (like me) here are trendy styles to ease you into the braid game.
If you’re looking for ways to switch up your braided look, here are 5 ways to style your braids with elaborate pictures:
Two Steps Side parting
These are a hybrid of the popular all-back braid hairstyle. Suitable for all draping hairstyles, so long as your braid style allows it. It entails dividing the hair in half, packing the first half and letting the bottom half down.
This Classic and elegant style is known to help define your face shape because there’s no hair in the way to block your beautiful face. It entails taking your hair and putting it in a simple bun to look like an intricately braided crown.
You can style this look further by securing the end of the braid with a hair tie or hairband.
A braided ponytail style is simple and allows you to part your hair in two. Giving you an instant facelift. To achieve this look, start by dividing your hair into equal 2 parts, plaiting both sides to the back, then leave hanging or pack it into a bun. Finish the look by leaving some braids to drape at the back of your head.
Braided Side Part
This look gives your face a soft, romantic look. A braided side part is known to be very stylish. To achieve this look, start by parting your hair to the side and then braiding a small section of hair on the side with less hair. Secure the end of the braid with a hair tie and then let the rest of your hair fall loose.
Styling with a scarf
This is for those who are in a hurry or need a very different look. Introducing scarfs gives you a sassy look. It entails tying your hair into a bun, and getting a pretty headscarf to wrap around the front area. To make it look fun, you can leave some area in front.
