3 Ways To Wear Braids

Braided hairstyles are proving themselves to be a pretty and practical styling option for the classroom, office and everywhere in-between! Here are three easy and on-trend ways to incorporate a plait into your day-to-day look.

The high braid

Pulled tight and neatly plaited, the high braid means business. The structure and hold of the braid means once you've set the style, you can feel confident that it will stay intact. Just smooth down any flyaways using hairspray and you're ready to hit the books. However wearing the high braid doesn't mean the rest of your look has to take itself too seriously! Use accessories to add a playful element to your style – oversized hoop earrings and statement sunnies bring instant street flavour.

The side frame braid

You can thank Game Of Thrones character Daenerys Targaryen for our current love affair with the face framing side micro braid. This look is utterly romantic thanks to its part angelic mermaid, part hippie chic and part mythical princess quality. The condition of your mane is on show when wearing this look so ensure it's in the best possible condition by investing in theL'Oréal Professionnel's Serie Expert Inforcer range.

The hybrid braid

This cute-as-a-button look lies somewhere between a half ponytail, a bun and a braid. Whether you're taking charge of an important meeting or heading out after hours, this hybrid style is practical yet whimsical. The beauty of this look is it's super easy to recreate, requiring minimal effort for maximum impact. To enhance the overall condition of your locks, put a little overtime into your hair with the L'Oréal Professionnel Pro Fiber range, which is designed to help repair damaged locks and improve hydration and shine.

Just add colour

Looking to funk up any of these braided looks even more? Ask your L'Oréal Professionnel stylist about experimenting with the new #COLORFULHAIR temporary dyes. A bright new hair shade combined with a braided look is certain to score top marks!
