Braidable Bliss

Make your hair its own accessory.

22 March 2010

Accessorizing hair with headbands, bows, feathers and clips are kid stuff compared to the fancified braids everywhere from the red carpet to the runway. Braids put a little pizazz in an otherwise ordinary updo, add some texture to a long hair and make your hair its own accessory. For lucky ladies with long, thick hair this look is as easy as a little practice. Low, loose braids are both office appropriate and sexy for a night out. Tighter, more sculpted braids marched down the runway at McQueen’s Spring 2010 runway show. Smaller, more random braids create a hippie feel or can make a more conservative look lighter.

But sometimes accessorizing with braids means using all of your hair, and many women don’t have enough to spare. For fine-hair ladies, try a braided hair piece to create your look. Hair headbands, like the one above, create that neat wrap around look so popular amongst celebrities. Braided hair bands come in various sizes, so choose the thickness that most closely matches your hair’s natural thickness. (There are also braided hair buns for more formal events.) Or try securing a hair piece in a ponytail and braiding it in with your normal hair. For tips on braiding, click here.
