6 Trendy Lemonade Braid Styles
1. Jumbo Colorful Lemonade Braids
If you are looking for an out-of-the box lemonade braids look that will also allow you to spend less time in the salon chair, then take a page out of hair stylist @tamika_braidbarbie’s book and try jumbo cornrows with a fun color. To add an extra flare, you could also enlarge the ends of the braids, add fun accessories, and style your edges. When styling your edges try the Emerge Edge Control to get in the perfect swoops.
2. Blonde Ombre Braids
Blonde ombre lemonade braids are the perfect way to experiment with new hair colors without having to go all the way if you’re not ready yet. If blonde isn’t your color, the amazing thing about a versatile look like this is that you can play around with different color options with the style until you find a color that you love the most.
3. Beaded Lemonade Braids
Are your cornrows feeling a bit plain? Or do you have a set of aged braids that you want to refresh? Beads will help you do just that. For a more neutral look, use brown or tan beads, for a fun, bright, and bold look, opt in for colorful beads. While refreshing your braids use Nexxus Dry Shampoo Refreshing Mist.
4. Medium Length Middle-Part Braids
If you love the look of lemonade braids but without all the length, then medium length braids are a great choice. Also, the length of these braids make it even better for everyday wear to work, school, and general day to day activities. To create a sleeker look, try adding a middle part. This is also a great style to add beads to!
5.) Opposite Parting Braids
Instead of going for the middle part look or the regular braided back look, try parting your cornrows in different directions like Krtistian. On one side, have your lemonade braids going back straight, and then on the other side, have them going a bit sideways. This parting style will help give your lemonade braids a unique and sleek look that many will admire.
6. Side Part Lemonade Braids with Wavy Ends
Side braided cornrows originated the lemonade braid trend. Go to the roots of the lemonade braids with this look by @braidedbytee. Dress up this look by adding waves or curls to the end of your braids. To help maintain the waves/curls at the end of your braids use SheaMoisture Wig & Weave Tea Tree & Borage Seed Oil Flyaway & Wrap Mousse for longer lasting results.
