The popularity of side-braid hairstyles is just going from strength-to-strength! And that’s no surprise as the young hair-designers are constantly coming up with new and imaginative twists on the look!

New braiding styles

Last year’s side-braid hairstyles were messy and very loosely plaited, for a sort of country-maid look. However, this year messy is ‘out’ and the new plaited styles are completely fresh and different.

Wide side-braids

One of the most original new braiding styles is the flat, wide braid, which is easy to achieve once you’ve seen the photos in our latest side-braid hairstyles Inspiration Gallery below. The plaiting is medium-loose and then pulled out gently at the sides to make the weaving look flatter and wider.

The look is still casual and relaxed for a look that’s great for Bohr everyday styling and can be made intricate and amazing in anion side-out braid, for evening wear.

Layered side-braid hairstyles

As layers are a major trend for long hair this year, they have been incorporated into the latest braiding designs in a totally hot new look. You can wear a low side-braid style with layered waves around the head in a super casual look that’s also very face-flattering.

And that’s not all, as you braid your layered hair, the ends of the layers will peep out from the plait. These can be left edgy and spiky for a punky look or curled to produce a completely new type of side braid hairstyle that has never been seen before – ever!

Add volume to your side-braid hairstyles

If you have long fine hair, there are lots of different ways to achieve a trendy side-braid these days. You can weave-in any human-hair extensions for a thicker braid and it doesn’t have to match your natural hair color perfectly, either!

Highlighting patterns

Highlights and different colored extensions adding streaks of copper, gold or rose-gold produce some fabulous patterns in your plait creating a very eye-catching look. I’ve seen some wonderful rainbow-color highlights in side plaits from sea-green, indigo and purple on dark hair, to lavender and faded pink on fair hair!

Hair accessories

Another way to add volume is just to plait in a silk scarf to your side-braid, adding a totally trendy touch of Boho fashion style to your image! Flower hair accessories are also hot this year, so you can add a touch of pretty color to your braid.

Quick updo

And for the world’s fastest updo, try pinning your side-braid vertically at the side of your head for effortless elegance in two minutes!
