We all love a classic French plait or cute pig tails (if you are still rocking this look), but 2016 has seen a new take on the classic braid.
We have seen models on the catwalk and celebs on the red carpet sporting fresh and creative spins on this classic look. From sophisticated spiral braids for a night out, Dutch braids for your day time look or boxer braids for hitting the gym – there is a braid for every occasion.
Blake Lively set tongues wagging with her tousled fishtail braid on the red carpet, The Kardashians have popularised the boxer braid, while Cara Delevingne is known for wearing braids on the red carpet or using them to create her Burning Man festival look.
If you prefer your hair out of your face, then a halo or crown braid will do the trick. Beyoncé, Katy Perry and Ciara are big fans of this look! If you are in need of a little evening glam, then we recommend a spiral braid or a romantic lace braid. For an edgier look, try rope or Dutch braids and achieve that chic biker look!
