3 Awesome Center Braid Styles

A versatile and hot trend, the center braid is one of the season's top hairstyles. A classic braid, a reverse French braid or a wraparound twisted braid... which is your favorite center braid style? Here are the 3 best ways to rock a center braid...

The Reverse French Braid Mohawk

A hybrid version of the classic French braid, a reverse French braid mohawk is an edgy hairstyle. The French braid is made in reverse, such that it appears on the crown with a braided ponytail down the curve of your head. It is an interesting take on the mohawk, as it weaves the hair from the outer layer under the mid-section. So, why stop at a simple French braid when you can flaunt a lot more?

The Slick Center Braid

This is a classic style of a center braid, inspired by the center parted look which draws attention to the face.

Make sure your hair is smooth and shiny before you start making the braid. Use a few drops of the Mythic Oil's Huile Initiale to dry hair, which provides nourishment to the hair and flattens its cuticles, giving the center braid a slick look. You can also use the shampoo and conditioner for thick and thin hair types from the Mythic Oil collection in your haircare regime.

Multiple Braids to Flaunt

Why stop at just one braid when you can flaunt many? You can add a lot of style to your center braid by adding multiple side braids, and a wrapped braid around the base of the ponytail.

You can secure the hairstyle and also achieve a beautiful texture by using a spray of a lightweight hairspray like Infinium 3 by Tecni.ART. It will avoid your braids from slipping out of place, if applied before and after styling your braids. The Fresh Dust dry shampoo from Tecni.ART is also a good product that soaks up excess oil from the hair, giving a matte finish.
