I’m pretty sure that everybody is aware that braids have always been the go-to hairstyle for girls (and it is now a trend among boys too). Braids have been around forever, they have proven to be timeless and classic, since they never seem to go out of style.

In this braid appreciation post, I will share with you a few of my favorite types of braids, for the most part they are very easy to do and you can wear them for pretty much any occasion. Dutch braids are perfect for the gym or even a night out, or you can just accentuate any updo by adding a cute braid.

Just a little side note: There’s no need whatsoever to be a braid expert in order to try this styles, I actually suck at braiding my own hair, I think I can only do normal pigtails and an occasional fishtail braid on myself, that never stops me from trying though (shoutout to all of you who are braiding pros).

I’m hoping after this post, you get the inspiration you need to take your braid game to a whole new level.

The possibilities are endless, enjoy.

    Ahhh, all of these look so gorgeous! I actually suck at braiding for myself, haha. And I find that braids make me look like 5 years old. But I adore how they look on others 🙂

    Ohhhh I wish I had long hair! 😀 When I was younger, I always wished to have long braids but my hair was never growing… and now I’m at a point where I’m just able to make the easiest braid- all the others won’t work (Not even with youtube tutorials)! :O
    Nevertheless on you they’d look amazing- I love your hair! <3
    Wish you a lovely weekend!

    All of these braids are absolutely gorgeous, I wish I was any good at braiding my hair – I can’t even do a fishtail braid to be honest. One of my friends is extremely talented, though, she even did her hair for her prom. xx

    • June 5, 2016 / 12:15 pm

      Same here! I can’t even do a normal braid but my sister is so good at that! I always ask her to braid my hair! xx

    Love all these braid styles. I remember my mom used to braid me with different styles back when I was younger.

    Love, Fads

    Ooh, I love love love braids, and braidspiration is very much a thing for me haha. I made a hair board on Pinterest and almost all my pictures were braids lol. I think it looks especially cool on multicolored hair too, like the girl you featured with the pink hair – I think it’s so cool!

    Love this post so much! I only just started to get good at doing fishtail braids, so hopefully I can do something like this one day. They look amazing!

    I wish I knew how to braid. Whenever I need a new hairstyle I go for a ponytail.

    Some tutorials would be very useful.


    • June 27, 2016 / 5:25 pm

      I also love brain but I suck at doing it! I also always look for tutorials but my hair is so thick that it never works! Thank you for reading! xx
