If you’re the type of girl who finds braids too constricting, mini braids are a hassle-free way to weave them into your look. Being a miniature version of large, thick braids, they keep only a section of the hair braided while the rest can be styled as you please. Win-win!

The French plait may be a braided hairstyle we all know and love but how different is it from a Dutch one? Unlike Dutch braids, in the French braid technique hair strands are weaved into the plait from the top of it. This seamlessly connects the braid to the rest of the hair and gives it a sophisticated touch.
