Beautiful Braids

This Spring I am loving everything with braids, pleats or plaits in them especially when it comes to hairdos! Below are some of the hottest braid trends this season.
:: Adorn with accessories ::
It's easy to give your braids a little extra something with ribbons, flowers, bows, and any other accessories you can think of. This creation is perfect for weddings or tea parties.

:: Romantic waterfall ::
This cascade braid style recently exploded as the new "trend braid" of the season. The waterfall effect looks cool and complex, and always remind me of Rapunzel. It's a soft, detailed and romantic look that can be worn on a casual date or to a more elegant dinner party.
:: Mussed-up fishtail ::
The fishtail braid is such a popular trend this year. I absolutely adore this sea-inspired style. To give your otherwise intricate braid a beachy-chic edge, loosen the braid and take out some strands after you finish.
 
:: Hair as headband ::
Who needs a headband when you can make one from your hair! I love this European Heidi-inspired front braid that you can style into an updo or wear with your hair down, the possibilities are just endless.

Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for reading!

  1. Beautiful brades, definitely that sort of laid back holiday style that you could take out and tumble into curls for a night out after a long day at the beach or a summer wedding. x

  8. This makes me want to sit in front of a mirror and practice! I love them all! My sister is considering doing a side fish tail braid for her wedding and I think it will go great with her dress.

  9. I love the simple braid around the wavy/curly hair! So pretty and I think it looks pretty easy to do. Love the rest of the braids but I don't think I could ever accomplish that with my own hair! :)

  10. out of all the photos, my fave is the 2nd one. the summer of 8th grade i spent hours teaching myself how to french braid my own hair. i like how the fishtail looks too, but when i try it on myself, it looks a mess. it'll be fun to see how you braid your hair thu. :)
