3 Reasons Why I Am Loving Braids These Days

maybe KarunaI recently had my hair braided and the experience reignited my burning love of braids. Not convinced about the many merits of this tress trend? Well, here are three pro-braid points that might change your mind.

  1. It Is A Pretty Hassle-Free Hairstyle

While you do have to sit around and twiddle your thumbs while it is being done, that is really the “hardest”—and clearly, I am using this word extremely dramatically—part of the whole process. Once the final twist is complete, you’re good to go until you decide to take them out.

  1. They Can Be Dressed Up Or Dressed Down

Braids are super versatile, granted that you know how to play up them up properly (and yes, I mean by applying the right makeup, of course).

Makeup Tip: Go with red lips, extra-long lashes and smoky eyes for a night out. For a daytime outing, opt for baby pink lips, glowy skin and minimal makeup all around. It’s summer, it’s all about the GLOW, remember?

  1. Removing Them Leads To Big Bouncy Waves.

The only thing better than being able to trot around town with the hottest hairdo is to be able to follow it up with eye-catching, uber-adorable waves. It’s like getting two back-to-back hair transformations from one salon appointment!
