Back in the days, a braided hairstyle used to imply that your hair was done last minute, however, things have long changed. People have discovered the beauty of braids and they’re hooked! This is why you see so many different braided hairstyles these days.
Whether you’re into cottagecore, Dark Academia, French-girl style, or you’re simply looking for something trendy, braids will definitely integrate seamlessly into your look, giving you a laid-back, gorgeous final look. Most braided hairstyles are easy to do and easy to maintain, which I believe is a huge plus.
HOW TO GET GORGEOUS BRAIDED HAIRSTYLES
Now.. I’m going to start this by saying that braids can be tricky. Why is that? When braiding your hair, you mostly need thick or medium hair, the braided hairstyles in this post that look thin are actually done on medium hair.
Braids for thin hair can be tough. Pulling hair into one sleek braid can reveal how much hair you’re not working with, so naturally many girls avoid them altogether. However, there are plenty of creative ways to rock braids with total confidence even if you have thinner hair.
Before ending the article, I’ll make sure to add a special gallery with a few examples that could work for thin hair.
Naturally, when you braid your hair, it instantly looks thinner than it actually is. That’s why you need a lot of volume before braiding.
If you want to go for the super thick look, I definitely recommend using extensions. When looking for extensions, make sure to look for quality. Not only will the final result look better, but the braids will also last much longer than they would if you would use low-quality extensions.
If you’re on a budget then the cheap extensions will definitely work too, you can get cute looks with these as well.
I don’t actually suggest the clip-in braids from Amazon. It’s inconceivable to match your hair color precisely, therefore the braids will come out looking shinier than normal, with a rather faux final look.
Without further ado, today we’re going to share some of our favorite braided hairstyles.
