The best braids for gorgeous next day hair

Braids can be a great way to dress your hair for the day. But they can also be a styling aid for gorgeous next day hair too.

Braids have become more and more popular over the past couple of years. Maybe it's social media, maybe it's fashion - perhaps it's a mix of both. Easy to follow online tutorials have made braiding techniques available to everyone and we love it. How else would we have learned how to do a DNA braid?

The beauty of plaits and braiding, in general, is that you can tailor them to suit your personal style. So, whether that's sleek, neat, textured, edgy or any other variant you can think of. Today, though, we're looking at braids that don't just work on day one, but day two as well.

Here are the best braids for gorgeous next day hair.

For cascading, mermaid style waves, Dutch braids are ideal. You can adjust the size of the wave by how tightly or loosely you braid the hair.



An overnight fishtail braid gives a nice bend and wave to hair when it's let out. For a more boho feel, just braid from the ears down to give a textured finish.
