Why settle for just one braid when you can wear two? There are a multitude of ways to wear two plaits – without a schoolgirl or milkmaid vibe! Here's how the fashionable crowd work double braids.
French braids are having a serious moment – especially when worn as a twosome. In this behind-the-scenes snapshot, the style is interpreted with a fashion-forward twist thanks to the start and end points. The plaiting begins on top of the head and ends at the nape of the neck, leaving the remaining ends in hybrid ponytails. These subtle adjustments add a point of difference to classic double French braids.
Super tight knit Dutch braids have striking visual impact. They're created using the same method as French braids, but in reverse, which is what makes them look so intricate. Once you have your technique down pat, its crucial to keep the plaiting tight so that there are no flyaways. Prepping the hair first with a smoothing serum like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Liss Control+ will go a long way in helping you achieve a polished finish.
Native American Inspired
Say "howgh" to this traditional double-braid style. As seen on the runway, the beauty of this Native American-inspired look comes from its symmetry and simplicity. To pull it off, each braid must be the same width and identically plaited. Top it off with a wraparound headband to hold the style in place.
High & Chunky Braids
Who says you can't have a little fun with your 'do? This playful take on the double braid is certain to put a smile on your dial. If you can handle this attention-grabbing look, all you do is section the hair into two high and tight ponytails and braid each one. For thicker braids, try adding a texturiser like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Super Dust through the lengths before styling. Remember, the chunkier the braid, the more striking the look.
