Fashion never sleeps. While we're still trying out the current trends, new ones are already starting to be created for the following season. Stay ahead of the game and start sporting these 5 different braided styles now – we're sure you'll see them everywhere this summer!
The double woven braids for Vanessa Seward
Hair is divided into a side part and braided very tightly into double woven braids. It's then flattened down with gel or spray to create a wet look, resulting in a very unique, modern and sophisticated style.
The braided pretzel for Mario Dice
Braiding hair into a thick braid and then winding it into a pretzel shape on the top of the head is a new out of the box way to style your hair. It's a bold look that long-haired girls can easily pull off.
The tight side braid for Gucci
Who ever said that only loose braids could be worn with side bangs? This look proves that an ultra-tight braid with bangs pinned away to the side can still look just as stylish. This braid resembles a twist and should be worn to the side to really show it off.
The braided loose crown braid for Fernanda Yamamoto
If you can't decide between a side braid or a braided crown then this hybrid look is for you! However you need a lot of hair for this style so if you use extensions make sure you choose the color carefully, one that is close to your own.
The double hip hop braids for Giles
A cross between the 'french braid' and hip-hop braids, these double braids are preppy and urban at the same time. This look is best for blonde or red hair, and consider adding some dry shampoo or texturizing product to really make the lines of the braid really pop!
