5 Braids You Can Wear Year Round

5 Braids You Can Wear Year Round

Hair not doing what you want it to? Are you on a time crunch and need quick but sophisticated hairstyles? Maybe you're looking to switch up your hairstyles around the office? We have collected five of the best braids you can wear year round so that you too can create these incredible looks at home with ease. No need to thank us.

1. Classic Side Braid

This Selena Gomez favorite is REALLY easy to do in the mornings. If you have short layered hair, leave a few hair strands out of the braid. Finish styling with a curling iron or curling wand to give those wispy strands a flawless curl shaping your face.

This classic braid pairs well with any outfit. Whether you're heading out for lunch with the girls or off to a client meeting, the side braid is always a last minute hair win.

2. French Braid

The french braid is an easy example of how to get very pretty, sophisticated hairstyles. Once braided, try orientating to one side by building the braid using an off-center line rather than down the center back of your head. Add some spice to it with accessories or flower clips to get that "flower power" chic look.

3. Bangin' Braid

Whether you're growing out your bangs or simply want them out of your face, adding a braid to your bangs is a quick and easy fix that looks great with all up or down hairstyles. Thank you to Lauren Conrad for making the braided-at-the-front hairstyle look sexy and flawless. Now it's your turn.

4. Fishtail Braid

This fishy favorite although different than a traditional three-section-hair braid, is still fairly simple to master . If you're a beginner when it comes to braiding, we suggest mastering a single fishtail braid before you attempt this double-updo version.

Feelin' edgy? Add a pop of color to your fancy fishtail braid. Not ready for color commitment? Use colored hair mascara or clip-in extensions to get multi-tonal strands without the permanent color effects.

5. Crown Braid

Crown braid hairstyles have been hot for some time now, but adding a more delicate touch makes this braid quite boho chic. This unique do pairs great with a low-slung, side bun giving you that polished boho look similar to Julianne Hough. Start with pigtail braids and secure them on top of your head with bobby pins.
