Nest Braid: An Easy Style to Wrap Your Head Around!

Make it as tidy or as messy as you want to with this simple and chic hairstyle. Perfect for hair of all types and lengths, it makes for a great summer look! Though the style looks complicated, it's pretty easy once you get the hang of it.

A Twisted Style - Braids, braids, everywhere

A head full of braids of different lengths, all twisted up together, results in this timeless style. You can opt for regular braids or French braids after sectioning off the hair first. Be it two broad braids on either side or many smaller braids all over the head, it's easy to make this style yours! Stock up on some bobby pins and some hairspray, and flaunt your style.

Variety is the Spice of Hair

One version of a nest braid is the crowned braid. This looks great on round faces and is perfect for those who want to look and feel like Jennifer Lawrence from The Hunger Games! Another variant has a pretzel shaped braid placed near the nape of the neck. Create a braided nest updo with a series of ponytails going down the back of the head to form a chignon for formal occasions.

What's Your Type?

Thick, long hair is perfect for braided styles but it works on most other types of hair too. Hair extensions work wonders for those in despair at not having voluminous hair. Flat heads don't work well with these braids, so just tease the crown a bit for some volume. Nest braids do not go well with very fine hair unless one is alright with wisps of hair coming undone bit by bit. But in the hands of a true professional, nothing is impossible and one might get away with a braided hairstyle irrespective of texture!
