Admit it; there is no easier way to pretty up your look than braiding it in a cool hairdo. Braids have been rescuing us from bad hair days for decades now. The dainty weaves and chic plaits are our go-to look for weddings, festivals, date nights and literally every occasion there is. If you haven’t found the perfect braid style for your hair length, you’re in for a treat.
Here are 3 gorgeous braid hairstyle inspirations for every hair length.
Side braid for short hair
Since you obviously can’t pull your 12-inch strands in a French braid or a braided ponytail, here’s a chic braid style for all the girls who are flaunting a cool bob. All you have to do is braid a small section from the front and pin it back, behind the ear, to fancy up your hairdo. There, you’ve got yourself a chic braid style. You can also create a centre parting and braid a section from both the sides to get a gorgeous braided ‘do.
Messy fishtail braid for medium hair
A dreamy side-swept fishtail is a dreamy and romantic hairstyle to rock. You can wear it for a festival, party or a casual event – it is that versatile. Plus, with your medium hair length, working it won’t be a task. Part your hair down the middle and leave some hair wisps lose from the front. Brush your hair back and divide it into two sections. Weave the two sections into a fishtail braid. Secure with a hair tie and you’re done.
Twisted braid for long hair
Girls with super long locks can pull off literally every braid style with ease. But our absolute favourite for long hair is a twisted braided. Not only it is super chic and stunning, but it lets you flaunt your Rapunzel hair with aplomb. To get this look, make a high ponytail and divide your hair into three unequal sections. Keep one section thicker than the other two (so it looks twisted) and braid your hair in a regular three-strand braid. Secure it at the end and tug and pull some strands from the front for a messy look.
