Create an exciting ‘do by putting your hair in two braids. Check out these hairstyles and let the fun begin.
Do you love braids? Better get two, then! Two braids are perfect for hot and humid days, especially when you have to spend a lot of time outdoors. They keep every strand in place while making you look fresh even if you’re sweating. Two braids are also easy to make. Check out these chic ‘dos to get you started.
1. Two side braids
Simply part your hair at the center and divide it into two equal sections. Tie one section loosely with an elastic so it stays in place while you braid the other one. Then, brush the other section to make sure there are no tangles. Start creating a basic three-strand braid at earlobe level up to the tips of your hair. Secure the end with an elastic. Do the same on the other section of hair. Easy, right? This ‘do is perfect for school so you won’t sweat in class while you take notes or solve Math problems.
2. Looped side braids
Now that you know how to make two side braids, you can easily make this one. After securing the ends of your braids with an elastic, pin them to the base of your braids to create a loop. You can use two or more bobby pins to make sure the braids don’t fall as you move.
Editor’s tip: Keep your braids free from frizz by spritzing them with TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray before creating the loops.
3. Boxer braid
Headed to the gym? Put your hair in a boxer braid to keep hair off your face while working out. It’s similar to two side braids, but you create two Dutch braids starting from your hairline. Your braids should be close to your scalp. If you have dandruff, it will easily show in this hairstyle, so make sure your combat these nasty white flakes with an anti-dandruff shampoo.
Editor’s tip: Minimize dandruff while nourishing and hydrating your scalp by washing your hair with Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo.
4. Loose side braids
If two side braids look too nene for you, the solution is easy: loosen them up. Doing so adds a grown up appeal to your two braids. Putting your hair in a loose hairstyle once in a while is also good to prevent breakage. You can wear loose side braids on weekends when you just want to chill at the mall or at your favorite coffee shop.
Editor’s tip: Use TRESemmé Platinum Strength Shampoo and TRESemmé Platinum Strength Conditioner to help restore your hair’s natural protective barrier, which will help prevent damage due to frequent styling.
5. Boho braids
Add a boho-chic flavor to two braids by finishing your ‘do with a headband. This hairstyle is perfect for the beach as you lounge around and sip coconut juice. You can also go for this ‘do if you want to spice up your everyday look. Then, wear a maxi dress and flat sandals to rock the boho-chic style.
Editor’s tip: Do you have super straight and sleek hair? Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray before you braid to give your hair grip. This will help make your hairstyle last longer.
