Hairstyles: 6 types of fashion braids for all tastes

by fashionsnobber

When I had long hair, my favorite hairstyles were definitely braids. I have always found them very feminine, elegant and chic. They never go out of style, they make you feel orderly and now there are really many variations from which to be inspired. Below I have collected the six main types of fashion braids most known trying to briefly explain how to do them to make them in the best way.




6 main types of the most fashion braids

Classic Braid

Trecce classiche - Classic braids

It is certainly the easiest of all the best known types of fashion braids. It is made by dividing the length of the hair into three equal sections. Then the external sections alternate on the central one. Endless possibilities to carry it. From central to lateral up to double as two pigtails or many small ones for an African effect.

French Braid

Treccia francese - French Braid.

Considered the most elegant of all types of fashion braids it seems difficult to do but in reality it is not at all. You just have to be careful in trying to keep it as close as possible to the skin by tightening each strand well. Start from the root as if to make a classic braid and every time you cross a lock above the central one, you must take another from the same side and insert it in the weave. Going down towards the neck the free strands will decrease and once finished continue as for the classic braid.

Upside Down French Braid

 Trecce alla francese sottosopra - Upside Down French braids.

He says the same name, to achieve it uses the same method of the French braid, but instead of starting on the other side of the neck is the neck and up towards the brow.

Milkmaid Braid

Trecce da lattaia - Milkmaid Braids.

The name says it all, but in the end version around the whole head I find it perfect especially for a boho chic style. To realize this you have to create two pigtails and form a classic braid each. Bring them to the opposite and stop them ears with hairpins.

Dutch Braid

Trecce alla olandese - Dutch Braids.

Understand well how the French braid is made? Here, it is the same procedure only that instead of passing the locks one on top of the other they must be braided one below the other. Simple isn’t it? Perhaps among all types of fashion braids, it is the easiest method to say than to do. At least as far as I’m concerned.

Fishtail Braid

Treccia a spiga o a spina di pesce - Fishtail Braid.

It starts by queuing and dividing it into two sections. Then take a small lock from one of the two sections and bring it towards the center. Proceed in the same way on the other side and continue to the tips. At the end remove the elastic used to make the initial tail and gently widen the braid obtained towards the outside for a softer effect. Of all the types of fashion braids, this is the one I prefer most and since in my opinion it is also the most difficult to explain in words, I refer you to a tutorial by Garnier on how to make a perfect ear braid. If they don’t teach us well, industry giants, who can do it?

And now that you know all the most types of fashion braids for hair, tell me, what braid are you from?
