Braid Hairstyles On Pinterest
Summer is on its way, and the hot weather has us wanting to put our hair up every chance we get. Instead of throwing your hair up in a messy bun every afternoon at work, consider styling your hair in the morning with looks such as braided hairstyles that keep your hair out of your face. Doing so will keep you cool throughout the day and give you more space to work comfortably. Browsing through Pinterest, we stumbled across a number of adorable braid hairstyles that inspired an article devoted to braids and ways to pair your braided hair with fashionable outfits.
The Side Crown Braid
The side crown braid, made popular by many celebrities including Lauren Conrad and Jessica Alba, is a great style for all you ladies with mid to long hair—especially for those of you with long side bangs. Whenever you want to be completely free of bangs falling in your face, try a side crown braid. While the side crown braid can be worn with your hair up or down, we prefer the look with your hair up, as it offers a clean, summery look. Pair this bohemian chic hairstyle with a short dress such as the James Perse Henley Dress ($205).
The Fishtail Braid
The fishtail braid is perfect for those lazy days when you don’t want to deal with your hair, but you still want to look presentable. While the fishtail braid is a little more complex than a regular braid, being able to quickly put your hair in a pretty fishtail braid will save you some time in the morning, keep your hair out of your way, and look amazing all at the same time. Wear this hairstyle with an emerald green statement skirt such as the Hi Lo Maxi Skirt by MM Couture by Miss Me ($66), a white crop top such as the Tie Crop Top by Alternative Apparel ($48), and nude heels such as the Loud Lee Patent Heel by Luichiny ($62.99).
The Waterfall Braid
The waterfall braid, best styled on long hair, is elegant and charming. The look brings wedding hairstyles to mind. With its long waves to add to the already gorgeous waterfall braid, this hairstyle is perfect for days when you want to make a great first impression—interviews, first dates, you name it. Wear the waterfall braid with high-waisted shorts such as the Daisy Short in Walnut Woven by Paper Crown ($187) and a long sleeve blouse such as the white Loose-Fitting Blouse by Theory ($264). Accessorize with gold jewelry for a more dressy look.
The Braided High Bun
We love the braided high bun because it’s classy and chic, making it a great hairstyle for every occasion. Wear the braided high bun with black skinny denim such as the Skinny Leg Jeans by J Brand ($170) and a sleeveless blouse such as the White Noise Shirt in black and tan by Cameo ($154). Complete the outfit with a pair of stiletto heels or ankle boots.
