1. Braided crown
These braid styles are more for a fancy event such as a wedding or graduation, but extremely cute. Make yourself a queen or princess with this look to have everyone in awe. This one might need a lengthy Youtube tutorial but it will be well worth it once you put it all together. You can style the crown however thick or thin you would like, even get a few different crowns wrapped around, have some fun with it! To top it off, tie some flowers or some shine like the picture below and you’ll have heads turning and girls asking you all night how you got your hair so perfect.
How fricken cute are these braid styles. So fun, so adorable. This one is relatively easy to do as well, compared to the braided crown. Rock this with any outfit or look and use this tyle to make it 100 times cuter. Make as many bubbles as you would like, big or small, it will definitely give a different feel to each look you try. This one is a big summer vibe too, but when summer is coming to an end just let the crisp Autumn air surround this look as well. Adorable.
3. Half-up, half-down
Another super simple one. Tie up the top half, and let the bottom half flow freely. The best part about this look is you can have some fun with the bottom half after you’ve finished braiding the top. You can keep the bottom straight, you can make big curls, or make it wavy, all of the above give the braid a completely different look. Fun, whimsical, and lovable. Such a fun braid style that you have to try out if you’re stuck on the french braid grind.
This style is a fun twist, not only on the classic braid but on pigtails! Spice up those pigtails by giving them a fishtail look that will have people doing double-takes. You can rock them like pigtails, dual-wielding a tail on either side, or you can braid it all together for one massive mermaid tail down your back. However you want to rock this braid style, it will surely be a look you will want to try again. Be crazy if you want and make 3 fishtails, I won’t judge…
THIS STYLE IS SO FUN! Turn your head into a beautiful waterfall and let your hair flow like water. Like the braided crown, this one might have some big tutorials involved, but look how gorgeous you will look when you roll up to any gathering, or date rocking this hair. You can have the top of the waterfall start closer to the top of your head, or let the water flow a bit further down. This one is similar to the half-up, half-down, but with a bit more glam. You can style the bottom half of your hair however you’d like. The opportunities are endless, so be creative and try different possibilities!
