6 Braids Hairstyles You Should Try This Season

What do you do when you feel the intense urge to become a whole new person which is mildly influenced by the last show you binge-watched? Let me make a wild guess. You sign up for a dramatic new hairstyle and wham! It's your character makeover. 

Hold your horses, a new hairdo is not as easy as a walk in the park. When the untamed mop sits atop your head, it feels nothing short of wearing a hat made of dead leaves. But if you think that your tangled ringlets, riddled with perpetual fizziness, are hindering you from achieving your desired look, then think again. Perhaps it's you who haven't invested enough time and energy to find the right hairstyle. 

Your curls are not your ardent enemies. They just need a spoonful of love and a bucketful of hairdo options that you can sport anywhere, whether it's a glitzy dinner date or an afternoon brunch. But firstly, here’s how you kick-off braiding your own hair:

  • Start by washing your hair, as usual, followed by a deep conditioner to soften the strands and a cool water rinse.
  • Detangle your hair by using a wide-tooth comb to loosen all the knots by working your way up from the ends to the roots.
  • Relax and defrizz your curls by blow-drying your hair. Blow out your curls with a hairdryer set to ‘low’ until they are almost totally dry. Brush out your hair one last time to make sure your locks are devoid of knots, and voila! You’re ready to start braiding your hair.

So before you lose your mind amidst a cesspool of braided hairstyle options, we have brought to you some craftily chosen braids hairstyles in 2022 that will accentuate your lustrous locks. Well, you can thank us later.

1. Ghana Braided Bun

Ghana braided buns are striking whether they are worn high like a tiara or low and brushed to one side. There are umpteen versions of the bun to explore, all of which are famed for their tight twists. You may display your creativity by adorning them with crochet or gilded cuffs. To your relief, Ghana braided buns need little upkeep and can last up to five weeks.

2. Romantic Goddess Braids

Heading out on a romantic date tonight? Well, fixing upon the right hairstyle can be daunting when all you can feel is the fluttering of the butterflies in your stomach. Believe it or not, supple, airy edges coupled with different-size goddess braids look right out of a fairytale. Need a more stunning look? Pull your locks back into a low, loose braided ponytail.

3. Fulani Braids with Leave Out

Fulani braids once rocked as one of the trendiest styles, so they aren’t newcomers to the braiding arena. But this season, it's time to pull off the Fulani braids with leave out and make a statement like never before. You can have your natural hair or a weave in the back and subtle, elegant braiding and beads in the front. The look offers you flexibility and a distinctive spin on a traditional look. Check out ‘Darling Super Soft’. Before sealing with hot water, you can twist single braided portions together.

4. Ornate braided updos

Raise your hands if you also find it irking when your hair, cascading down your shoulders, pokes its way through your neck? Well, then, thank goodness for the ‘feed-in’ technique, you can add some hair extensions, and create a unique style by keeping the hair off the neck. Dramatic top knots, and goddess braids with ponytails that tumble down and away from the body are one of the hottest looks out there.
