Braids can be girlish, they can be classical, traditional or elegant or punkish. It all comes down to the particular style you’re wearing, and the way in which you carry it. Braids are a staple part of any girl’s hair repertoire, a constant rather than so much a trend; and yet, as far as fall 2013’s hairstyles go, the question is of which braided hairstyles to try.
The side braid is basically what it says: a braid that falls to one side of the hair. The brilliant thing about the side braid is that it takes only minutes to create, but has plenty of impact. In recent years it became associated with tomboyish, sporty cool, but for fall 2013 it was reignited in a smooth, elegant light.
The crown braid is a type of braid that goes around the head. It’s a style you would likely see while watching Game of Thrones. Whether done cleanly or in a sleek way, it exudes a royal vibe. If you’re going for a vintage and playful look, try leaving it a bit messy.
Modern with a boho edge, a fishtail braid is increasingly popular. The main difference with this braid is that it uses four strands instead of just three, giving it that fishtail look.
If a long braid isn’t your forte, opt for a double-stranded braid twist pulled into a bun, like the look from Naeem Khan’s fall 2013 runway.
