It has been impossible not to notice, and fall in ♥ with the Braid revival that has been occurring of late…..
The perfect alternative to the formal bridal updo braids are ideal for creating a little interest in long and loose hair, and for creating a relaxed boho bridal style, which would be beautiful for a beach babe……
Or a new take on the floral crown, how about a braided crown weaved with flowers…. could anything be more pretty?…..
Cute and a little bit retro braided bands frame the face and look fab with a fringe…..
Now who could forget how chic the Duchess of Cambridge looked at the London Olympic Gala with her ever perfectly coiffed hair in a chic braided updo, so glamorous and just right for a formal updo….
Or to show off your luscious locks keep it simple with a long side braid…..
From formal finished updos, to fishtails and waterfalls, dutch braids and milkmaids, there are braids galore – something to suit everyone. And if you’re tempted to give this trend a try at home, fashion and bridal blogs are awash with DIY tutorials like these…..
They make it look so easy I might even have to try an alternative to my usual pony tail!
Don’t panic if you have short hair, Braided Updos are possible for hair shoulder length and longer – this DIY ‘Hot Cross Bun’ from The Beauty Department is for shorter hair….
Which is your favourite style? Are you going to be a braided babe for your big day?
