Avant Garde Braids

First, we want to feature some very artistic work.  We are always inspired by these types because of the intense amount of discipline, practice, and artistic creativity that is involved.  Can we take a moment to celebrate some of these artists for their works of art?  Let’s have a peek:

We are always on board when accessories are added to a hairstyle, and this is no exception.  Perfectly situated rings add just the touch that was needed to complete this look.  We love suggesting our Iles Formula Finishing Serum for braids, as it adds control while braiding and really helps to eliminate frizz and fly aways.

For a softer more wearable option, we love this fishtail crown braid.  How sweet is this?  So whimsical with all of it’s loose and flowing bits.  Does it really get any better?  Well, lets see:

We love the creative interpretation here and the juxtaposition of smooth, combined with the texture of different braiding techniques.  It is definitely one of our favorites.

Baroque Braids

These next inspirations are in our opinion a touch on “classic ” style braids.  A bit more on the everyday wearable side if you will.

As mentioned, a more wearable style, but still very detailed when it comes to the creation.  One of our favorite parts is the mini crimped hair before braiding.

What do you think of this basket weave style?  This paired with the silver hair color makes for a interesting combination.

Finally, we wanted to share this updo style braid with you.  Any time you can take a basic up style and turn it into a work of art, we are on board.
