Braids are some of the most versatile hairstyles. They come in different forms, are suitable for all kinds of hair, and can be worn on any occasion. They're also a fuss-free, low-maintenance style as you don't need to do much after the braid it tied. The style will stay in place whether you wear a hat, walk around in windy conditions, or work out in the gym. At Hair 2.0, we believe braids are an ideal style for thinning and fine hair as well. Here's a look at some of the best braid styles of 2018:
1. Simple Messy Braid
This is one of the easiest styles to create and it can be very flattering on most people. Just tie a regular braid, pull it gently to loosen it, and pull a few strands out along your forehead and temple area. This messy style will soften your face and give the illusion of volume to the hair.
2. Beanie Braid
This style is especially suitable for people with thin and fine hair. You just need to tie two simple ponytails on either side of your head and then wear a beanie. Make sure there are a few strands to frame your face to balance out the look. This braid style is perfect for casual events, trips to the beach, and concerts.
3. Halo braid
This is a great style if you want to have your hair loose but still in control. Gather a section of hair from above one ear and French braid it to the other side carefully. Once you reach behind the other ear, tuck the remaining length of hair carefully so it isn't visible from the front. This will give you a halo of a braid and keep hair out of your face. Halo braid is perfect for weddings, proms, or similar formal occasions.
4. Side Spiral Braid
This is a quick, easy, and fun hairstyle that works well with both formal and casual clothes based on how you style it. Create a braid from the bottom of your hair on the desired side and tie it loosely. You can use a volumizing mousse to add some texture and fullness. If your hair is really thin, pull the braid at the sides gently loosen it further and make it a little fluffy.
5. Banded, Textured Braid
This banded and textured braid is perfect for a party or concert because it adds a little edginess to your look. Tease and backcomb your hair at the top for some volume before braiding it carefully. Tie a band at regular intervals and pull the braid a little create a fluffy texture. Set this style with a spray to ensure it doesn't fall flat after some time.
6. Messy Fishtail
Fishtail braids are often sleek, which can emphasize the texture of fine and thin hair instead of disguising it. A messy fishtail is the perfect solution for this and will give your hair the appearance of volume. Just tie two ponytails low on each side of your head and gently tease them loose. This is the perfect style for the weekend to hang out with friends or socialize.
7. Fishtail Twist
This style is pretty easy to create but it looks very intricate from a distance. All you need to do is pull your hair back in three ponytails, placing each tail below the other down the back of your head. Once that is done, braid individual ponytails into a fishtail, pull them a little to loosen the braid, and then twist each tail around the other. You can tuck away any large sections of hair to create an elegant Mohawk-like style.
8. Braid Within a Braid
This is a simple, quick, and elegant style. It is perfect for every day use and doesn't require any volumizing product to add body. Divide your hair in three sections as you would for a regular braid and then braid one section completely. You can then create a regular braid using that one plait and other two sections of hair. This gives your regular plait some dimension and interest. To add some texture, loosen the smaller plait a little and then loosen the full braid.
All of these styles work well with thin and fine hair. If you're worried about thinning hair on your head, we at Hair 2.0 recommend our natural keratin fiber solution. Want to know more? Contact our customer care for queries or browse through our website for information on different products.
