Two-braid hairstyles lead the way for a number of styles that look intricate but are actually really easy to create. We love the idea of utilizing two braids to boost a style and give the impression of a more complicated hairstyle. Here are three unique ways to use two-braid hairstyles to up your braid game in no time!

How to Style Two-Braid Styles

1. Start with clean hair.

To begin your braided hairstyle, start by washing your hair with a hair care system that’ll leave your look looking shiny and healthy. Wash your hair Suave Lemongrass & Ginger Strengthening Shampoo and Suave Lemongrass & Ginger Strengthening Conditioner. Following your hair washing routine, apply about a dime-sized amount of Suave Professionals Honey Infusion 10-in-1 Leave-In Conditioner to your hair for some additional conditioning. This hair care product will also guard your hair against frizz and heat. Air-dry or blow-dry your hair until it’s at least 90% dry.

2. Create two braids.

After drying your hair, divide the part of your hair that you want to braid into three even sections. For this look, we suggest a chunkier three-strand braid. Secure the ends of your braids with a hair elastic or backcomb to keep the braids in place. Leave the rest of your hair as is or curl it, if you have the time.

Three Two-Braid Hairstyles to Try

Style #1: Wear double braids.

To create your first style, criss cross the right braid over the left and pin your hair in place. Isn’t that braided style so cool?

Style #2: Combine braids into one.

For your second braid style, keep the pin in place and combine both braids into one. You can opt to twist the braids together, or simply pin them to create one braid. Sweep the newly formed braid to your preferred side.

Style #3: Wear it as a braided bun.

Last but not least is a fun updo. At this point, you might be getting tired of wearing your hair down, or maybe your hair is just too dirty for you to deal with. No need to fret! To achieve this style, twirl your braids up into a low bun hairstyle. Secure your bun together with some carefully placed bobby pins.

And, that’s all there is to it! Use these five simple steps to create a gorgeous braided look.
