There are so many hair braiding classics and trends that are in heavy rotation. Everywhere you turn someone is sporting one of the finest braided hairstyles ever. The look we have on our radar at the moment is curly braids. We love how women are styling this look using wet and wavy braiding hair.

This type of braiding hair may feel old school to some, many of us can remember getting our hair braided with wet and wavy hair during our teenage years, but believe it or not, it’s not as trendy as you think. It’s more of a classic. This type of hair can be styled so many different ways that work for any season or reason. Below we’re highlighting three different ways you can wear wet and wavy braiding hair.

Wet and Wavy Braiding Hair: Three Stylish Ways to Wear The Look

1. Wet and Wavy Braiding Hair Afro Style

If you want to go for a curly afro style, your stylist will just braid your hair with the extensions at the roots and leave the ends free. For volume, you can ask to have a lot of hair installed or you can just separate with waves to create a voluminous and fluffy look. If you ever find that your hair looks dull, you can use a shine serum like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shine Serum to add shine.

2. Wet and Wavy Braiding Hair with Headband

Give your look a quick and stylish update with the use of hair accessories. We love this headband look. When wearing a headband with any kind of box braids, consider using options that are made with soft fabrics. You want to prevent any tension on the roots of your braids. To complete your look, you can also turn it up a notch with the addition of a statement earring. We love hairstyles paired with statement earrings.

3. Wet and Wavy Updo

Last but not least is the updo! You can wear this at night to maintain your braided look while you sleep, or you can wear it out an about as a style. To recreate this look, simply gather your braids up into a loose ponytail and loop your braids in halfway. The goal is for the wavy ends of your hair to cascade along your crown.
