In today’s world hair braids have become one of the biggest trends. Something so simple and classic that they may be used in everyday life, formal styles and even in the biggest catwalks. The Kardashians have introduced the dutch braid as a casual but still chic look. Their iconic look is the most popular and known as two single dutch braids on each side. Another simple everyday look loved by our DeBerardinis staff; includes french braids halfway into a mini messy bun. Braids are one of the easiest and least time consuming when it comes to your daily looks. A simple soft braid down the back or to the side can change your hair from just ‘meh’ to WOW! Even for the busy moms with no time to spare in the mornings, they could do a quick clean braid to keep their daughters hair back and looking cute. If you’re going for a more formal look, a side braid with loose curls is one of the most popular, and never goes out of style. The half-updo with loose curls, and waterfall braids in the back is a very trendy choice among our grad and prom girls. They are a super traditional style that have been quickly growing into much more creative looks. Whether it be soft swept, super harsh, or clean sleek look, braids can fit in for any age, any occasion, and any hair type, long or short. They are so diverse with many variations that I don’t see this trend going anywhere anytime soon!
Braids are life!

If your hair is pin straight, you already know the struggle to keep super tight curls that just won’t hold. Instead, you can opt for a full or half up do, add in some braids, some loose waves, the options are endless! Hair accessories are a fun way to glam up your look! Check out Forever 21, Claires, or even online on Etsy for some really cute hair pieces. Something else to consider is to choose a style you feel comfortable in.

You’ve found the perfect prom dress, booked your limo, and now let our expert Eleanor Gonzales tell you about the perfect prom night hair! Whether it be updo, halfdo, or wearing your hair down, the hottest trend this season is braids. This just also happens to be what I do best! I think to determine whether you’re looking for updo, halfdo, or leaving your hair down, ultimately depends on the style of the dress you’re going to be wearing. To list some examples, open back dresses look best with updos so you are able to show the cut of your dress. Strapless dresses with sweethart neckline are complimented best with a half updo, or leaving down with curls. No matter the look you do, adding a braid always gives that extra OOMF. It’s the perfect way to spice up the typical hair style. There’s so many types to choose from, waterfall braids, french braids, fishtail braids, the list goes on and on. It’s a great way to play around with a variety of hair styles, and get glamorous fast. For hot summer days, where you just feel like you can’t beat the heat and it helps to tame that frizzy look. It evens work well for casual, everyday looks. To accentuate the look, you can even add in flowers, tiny jewels, or sparkly beads to add a doze of dazzle. This looks great for weddings, bridal showers, and other special occasions. There’s so many options available, but creativity is all up to you!
