Braids are a classic hairstyle. Not only do they tuck your hair in, but they are also low maintenance, and, of course, beautiful to look at. Every once in a while, however, regular braids become boring. If you are someone that likes to constantly try out something new, then this is for you. Here are 6 ways in which you can accessorize your braids:

1. Headbands

You may opt to use headbands on your hair. Headbands come in different colors and designs, so you can always pick one that matches your outfit. You can almost never go wrong with headbands. There’s such a variety to pick from. They also work exceptionally well for when your braids are a little older and rusty because they cover the hairline which tends to become untidy.

2. Beads

You can also accessorize your braids with beads. Again, these work perfectly because of their versatility. You can have your regular plain braids for the first two weeks, then add the beads and have a completely new look. You can pick from a variety of beads – brown ones, clear ones, blue ones… It all depends on you.

3. Rubber bands


Rubber bands on braided hair sound like a look for a child, but trust me, anyone, and I mean anyone, can pull it off. The trick? To pick the right colour of rubber bands, and have someone help you to arrange them well on the hair. This style has recently made a comeback in fashion. It’s an edgy, casual look.

4. Scrunchies

Scrunchies are super cute. They come in different colours, shapes, and sizes. They are a vintage look that can take your look from 0 to 100. Scrunchies are not new. They were the ultimate ’80s accessories, and they can be traced back to 1984 with the invention of the “bunch bangle” by a woman named Jane Reid. Isn’t it lovely to see such beautiful fashion making a comeback today?

5. Hats

Hats are another great way to accessorize your braids, and especially for braids that are a little rusty and old. You can try out different kinds of hats. Baseball caps, bucket hats, or even berets. Wearing a hat takes little effort, and takes your outfit to the next level.

6. Bandanas

Bandanas are not new in the fashion scene. They are in fact, among the 90’s fashion trends for women that have come back. They even became associated with famous artists such as Tupac, Axl Rose, and Christina Aguilera. Bandanas are a great hairstyle for a bad hair day, and especially braids. So, rather than take down your braids, try wearing them out with a bandana. You won’t regret it!
