3 ways to rock a centre braid

The center braid is one of this season's hottest styles, and is actually quite versatile – take these three versions for example. From reverse French braids, to classic braids or clever wraparound twists, let's take a look at what the center braid has to offer...

Reverse French braid mohawk

Who knew braids could have so much attitude? This Mohawk-inspired look involves reverse French braiding your hair so that the plait appears to "sit" on your crown, following the curve of your head down into a braided ponytail. Because the reverse French braid involves weaving the outer pieces of hair under the middle section (instead of over), the result is a chic take on the mohawk: edgy yet put-together.

Sleek centre braid

This look is a classic example of the striking quality of the humble centre braid. Note how styling the hair this way creates a modern centre part, while also drawing attention to the face. Before recreating this look, start by ensuring your hair is perfectly smooth and shiny by applying a few drops of Mythic Oil to dry hair, which nourishes the hair fibres and flattens the cuticles. The Mythic Oil collection also offers a shampoo and masque for all hair types, the perfect duo for your haircare routine.

Braids, braids and more braids!

Give your centre braid an extra, unexpected element by incorporating a pair of cute mini side braids, topped off with a pretty wrap braid around the base of the ponytail. Texture and hold is crucial in order for this braided look to stay in place, so apply a lightweight hairspray like before and after styling your braids. You may also like to spritz dry shampoo on the loose lengths for a modern, matte finish.
