Another thing that you can do to make this spring hairstyle more fun is to add an interesting hair clip or place a pretty hairband on your head.
Braided spring hairstyle – ‘Milkmaid’ braid
If you rocked the ‘milkmaid’ braid 5 or 6 years ago you would’ve certainly get negative comments and laughs behind your back, but today if you wear the ‘milkmaid’ braid, you’ll probably get a bunch of compliments.
The ‘milkmaid’ braid looks youthful and bohemian, and it also looks like you’re wearing a headband or a crown. Hair stylist recommend that you do the ‘milkmaid’ braid high on your head so it’ll look like a crown made of hair. Additionally you can make the ‘milkmaid’ brad more beautiful by braiding a thin piece of ribbon along with your braid. This hairstyle is great for casual and everyday looks.
Spring braided hairstyle – ‘Fishtail’ braid
The ‘fishtail’ braid always looks interesting and unique because it has a really intricate texture. Many Hollywood ladies used the ‘wow’ effect that this braid gives. ‘Fishtail’ braid is quite easy to make if you don’t have layers, it’s slightly tricky to make if you have layered hair, but the little loose strands can be fixed with hairspray and few hairpins.
So, don’t think too much and try this hot spring hair trend. The only think that you need to look after to get a perfect ‘fishtail’ braid is to take strands of hair that are the same thickness and to braid them slightly tighter. Messy fishtail braid also looks great, but you can clearly see the intricate texture when the braid is neater.
Braided sprin hairstyle – ‘Waterfall’ braid
If you do a waterfall braid, you’ll definitely get a fun spring hairstyle. Although the waterfall braid seems complicated at first glance, once you do it, you’ll find that it’s actually very simple to make.
The best thing about the waterfall braid is that it’s really versatile and you wear it with casual or more sophisticated outfit. You can also add a few details here and there and make it more interesting. You can also finish the rest of your hair with a plain braid, ‘fishtail’ braid on one side or just leave the rest of your hair free and decorate the waterfall braid with interesting hairpins.
Also, you can either braid your hair on one side only, or you can do it on both sides and finish it in the middle.
Spring braided hairstyle – ‘Rope’ braid
The ‘rope’ braid is in no way your typical ordinary braid and it also looks very glamorous and intriguing, so it’s not limited to casual everyday looks but you can also wear it for special occasions too.
Ever wondered how this braid stays so neat without getting loose? The trick is to turn the two separate strands of hair in one direction, and then to wrap them both in the opposite way. For example, twist the two strands of hair on the right side and then wrap them together in the opposite side (on the left).
This look is very difficult to achieve if you have layers, because then you won’t get that shiny and sleek effect. In that case, try to tame your hair with hairspray, hair wax or hair gel.
