Braid that Mane

Gone are the days when braided hair was touted as a boring school girl hairdo. With the ever evolving fashion trends, this simple yet interesting style seems to be scoring brownie points among women of all age groups. From ace Tennis players to bedazzling Hollywood starlets, all have been spotted flaunting different braided styles making it the next rage on the ramp.

Braiding is a quick and easy process that prevents hair from looking dishevelled and also lends an edgy look to the face, especially if the hair texture is wavy. People with straight hair can opt for French braids for an understated yet suave look that can very well complement formal attire. For an unkempt and chic look, opt for a hairline braid leaving a few strands of hair apart or settle for a waved braid that will add a bit of volume to hair.

Keeping the hair tied with a braid not just prevents excessive hair breakage but also aides in hair growth. However one has to be choosy about the products such as conditioning potions and creams that are applied before braiding, since most of these are chemical based and regular usage can degrade the hair texture. Ensure that the hair is cleansed and conditioned before braiding and refrain from braiding wet hair as it will tangle them further leading to breakage.

Hair stylists all over the world suggest that braiding style should be in accordance with the shape of the face. Those with a round face can highlight their features best through a French braid tied neatly whereas a fishbone braid looks best on those who have an extended jaw bone or even an oval face. Keep the braid simple for a day at work and add some bling accessories for an oomph factor during an evening out
