Braid styles 2017: Looks you should rock this year
And even though this braid ‘do takes a while to achieve, it’s perfect for anyone who is looking for a protective hairstyle, minus the daily styling. Plus, once your entire hair is braided you are then free to rock as many cute hairstyles as possible!
Ok, technically this hairstyle isn’t technically a braid. But we thought we’d slip it into our braid hairstyles 2017 round-up anyway because it’s so pretty! Flat twists are a close hair cousin of the beautiful French plait and Dutch braid, but only involves two strands, so it’s much easier!
Just remember to spray your hair with a little hairspray like the Toni&Guy Tousled Texture Creation Hairspray before and after creating your twist to give your hair grip and make your ‘do last longer.
We couldn’t talk about hair, braids and 2017 without including the gorgeous halo braid (AKA goddess braids). It’s super boho and beautiful, and despite its complex appearance, it’s rather easy to achieve! But if you really can’t master the look? Then why not try your hand at our simple milkmaid braids instead.
Editor’s tip: Once you’ve created your braided hairstyle, lightly mist your halo hairstyle with the TRESemmé Ultimate Hold Hairspray to help it last all day.
