Do you feel like your weekend hair needs a little update? It’s so easy to get stuck in a bit of a rut when it comes to weekend hair. Since braids have been all the rage the past few months, we don’t know about you, but we’ve been all about finding fun ways to style our hair with braids. So, we got to thinking weekends and braids…seem like a pretty great combination. We’re sharing some of our favorite ways to styling your hair in weekend braids to give you a little inspiration on how to rock braids this weekend and give your weekend ‘do a little update.
Pigtail French Braids
The Kardashian sisters really made a splash with the braids in the past year, and may be partly to credit for bringing braids back into the hair world so prominently. Regardless of who did, we’re all about the pigtail French braids. They really aren’t as difficult to style as you may think. Start by separating your hair into two sections by creating a strong middle part. We suggest pulling one side of the separated hair into a ponytail loosely so you’re free to braid the first half without having to worry about anything getting mixed in. The great part about pigtail French braids is they’re a great way to keep a lot of your hair out of your face, making them perfect for the weekend so you’re free to go about your fun weekend activities without having to fuss with your hair.
French Braid Into Half-Up Style
Another favorite braided hairstyle we’ve been seeing lately that’s just perfect for the weekends has got to be the French braid that leads into a half up ponytail/bun look. It’s fun and unique take on the traditional half up hair style, and what better style to combine it with than a braid? Simply start by braiding your hair at the front back until about that half up hair style place and secure the hair in a rubber band – or add the bun detail if you want to do something a little bit different. The thing about this particular braided hair style is it doesn’t have to be perfect…in fact it’s one of those hair styles that somehow looks better when it’s NOT perfect – making it another great weekend hair style, because you don’t have to worry about perfection on your days off.
If you don’t want to have a lot of your hair pulled back into a hair style, this is a great alternative to still rock some braids in your hair on the weekend. This can be done a number of ways, but really adding a braid by using your side swept bangs or to create that edgy look on the opposite side of your side swept bangs is a great way to style your hair in braids for the weekend. You can add just one braid, or multiples. But it’s a fun hair style to have a little fun trying different placements for the braids and an easy way to get a little hair out of your face but still be able to wear your hair down.
