Braids are a classic way to style your hair. And with braid styles ranging from boho braids to fishtail braids, there is one for every occasion and personality type. Today, we’re going to talk about 4 different types of braid hairstyles that you should try out!
The Basic Braid
The basic braid starts with a section of hair that has been pulled away from your head – this will be from one side of your hairline to the other (top to bottom). Pulling it back over itself you make tight rows until you reach as close as possible towards the front – this can also be called a French braid or plait depending on where in Britain you’re at!
To finish you take each strand individually and pull them through the topmost loop so they stick out evenly like individual hairs instead of tightly woven together (this should give it more volume too!).
You’ll then braid the braid by simply taking each strand and weaving it over to the other side. You can braid down as far as you want but most people braid their hair for a few inches so they don’t have two braids that meet in one place at the nape of your neck, which looks quite strange!
Ghana braids braid styles that originated in Ghana. The braid style is often made from natural hair and can be worn with or without extensions. If you’re new to this style of braiding, visiting curlcentric.com/ghana-braids may answer all of your questions. Especially as it’s a style that’s popular these days.
The braid starts off by parting the top part of your hair into two sections: one on either side. Then you’ll take all the hair in one section and start to braid it back down towards the bottom of your head.
Once you have reached this point, you will then cross over to the other section where there’s still some loose hairs left so that you can now start another braid pattern from scratch using those strands as well
Now, if you want to finish this braid style with a more polished look, then here’s what you’ll do. You will take all of your hair and start braiding it into two sections again except for one section which is going to be left out from baring some loose strands at the end like before on top of your head in order to make sure they don’t fall through the braid pattern or get stuck while you’re pulling them back down onto it.
Now once both sections are done being braided down towards the bottom of your neck where they meet each other, take those last few loose hairs and wrap them around one braid to tie it off tightly.
You can either braid them together with the other hair or wrap a scarf around that braid in order to hide those loose hairs and make sure they don’t come undone before you put on your style for the day.

The fishtail braid is a type of braid that starts from the back and involves two strands, one strand on each side. It’s known as a fishtail because it resembles an outline of a fishing hook.
The braid usually extends up to the nape area or sometimes down to the shoulder blades. You can make this hair braid more voluminous by adding in extensions at first then twisting them into the braid before you secure them with grips.
– This kind of hairstyle may take some time but once done correctly, there will be no need for any other styling products such as hairspray or gel.
– This kind of braid is ideal for everyday wear since it does not require too much effort when it comes to styling.
– Fishtail braid is also a suitable braid for people with curly hair since it can be done without the use of heat.
– This braid also works well when you want to cover up your roots or add more volume at the top of your head while keeping everything neat and tidy on the back.
The braid starts at the nape of the neck and goes to your forehead. It’s best for people who want a braid that is looser than other types of braid styles.
This braiding hairstyle will also last longer because it doesn’t have as many ends on one side, which makes it easier to take care of when detangling hair – you can untwist the whole braid before separating out individual sections with more ease without having to worry about unraveling or getting snagged in tangles.
