Super Easy Braids To Try Out (No Stylist Required, We Swear!)

You know the fact that braids save us from a bad hair day and are the easiest way to manage your hair when it gets unruly and frizzy. In the last few months, we have spotted braids on celebrities, on runways and even at red carpet events. And as the summer draws closer and temperatures soar, what better way to look chic?

Braids are very feminine and if you think you cannot pull it off without the help of your hair stylist, it’s time that you let your hands do the talking. Be it curly, straight, wavy, long, medium or short, we’ve covered it all. In short, we are obsessed with braids.

1. Braided pony

One of the simplest styles, and all it will take is 5 minutes. This style looks great on wavy or straight hair that is long or medium in length.

How to do it:

  1. You require a black band and a cute hair accessory.
  2. Now remove all the knots from your hair and then divide your hair in two cross sections.
  3. Once you have two sections, secure the upper section with a rubberband.
  4. Start braiding the lower section, not too tight, not too loose.
  5. Once done, wrap it over the ponytail and roll over.
  6. Secure it with a cute accessory.

2. Half crown hairstyle

This style works on medium to long hair and both curly or straight hair. It’s as simple as it looks.
