10 Braid Hairstyles

Behen ji, a term invented by the so called stylish and ultra modern group of our colleges, and applied on a girl who is relatively a simple girl, who wears salwars and tie her long tresses in braids. But gone are the days when braids used to make you look like a non-trendy girl next door. Braids have now become one of the most stylish hairstyles of the season.

So listing today our top 10 favorite braid hairstyles.

Side Braid:

A messy side braid is all you need to be the center of attraction. Take your hair to the side and start doing braids all the way down. Secure it with a tie. Fan out the braid by pressing it with fingers. And voila..!! You are done. You can do front poof side braids too. Braids look super-chic. And if you can make it the fishtail way and add some mess, you will look even prettier.

Crown Braid:

Cornrows - 10 Braid Hair Styles

This is one fun hairstyle which I tried so many times and at so many places and occasions. Actually originated from Africa, it soon became widely popular due to its easy and fun appeal. Just braid strands of hair into a series of French-braid-like locks. Make sure you cling to the head and travel the neck along with your hair length. You can then put the hanging portion into ponytails, buns or whatever you like.

Braided Bun:
