From the most simple styles to truly incredible intricate looks, braids are trending in 2019. Use them to create casual or elegant styles, and start experimenting with the trend.
The smaller the braid, the bigger the style can be. Hair looks made with micro braids are gaining traction again, and they’re a super cute way to add a little extra embellishment to your style. Try doing a micro braid starting right at your part, and pair this addition with any hair style you want to have.
Dutch braids look like the classic French braid but inside out! This style is a unique but easy go-to style, and many of Hollywood’s young, hot celebs are rocking this fun look. To get a Dutch braid, you want to braid your hair close to your scalp at an angle going from your forehead and sweeping across the top and side of your head to the back. Unlike the French braid, which has an inverted look, the Dutch braid clearly stands out against the scalp.
Braid the bottom half of your hair in two or three sections to create an elaborate braided bun. It looks great as a professional or formal look for anyone. Twist the braids together into a circle at either the crown of your head or nape of your neck, and you’ll look like hair trend royalty.
Low and Long
If you’ve got long hair, you can wear a long, low braid. Use a center part, and gather your hair at the nape of your neck to create a sleek look up top. Create any braid of your choice down your back, and you’ve got a look that can be casual, elegant or anything else you need it to be.
Start playing around with different braided looks, and you may come up with some new, trendy styles of your own.
