Best Braid Extensions Styles of 2019

Braid Extensions Styles

When it comes to braiding extensions styles these celebs have made a comeback and the beautiful Eva Marcille is making them look so fab with the added beads and colors. It’s fun funky, and we love it. If you have thin hair or a thinning hairline we caution you to avoid this style as the added weight of these long braids may cause too much stress on your hair. However, if you have thick, healthy hair with a full hairline, this will be a fun style to try!

Braided Bob  

This is perfect for the summer and hot months as it is fashionable and keeps the hair off the back of your next. Its lightweight so it makes for a great protective style. Bobs are always a cute staple hairstyle. This is a style everyone can pull off. If your hair is too long, then you can braid your hair down and try the crochet braided bob as shown, and it will still be Fab!  Photo Credit: IG @simsimstyles

Afro Kinky braids

Okay, these may not be for everyone, but we sure do love them! These are just a twist on the traditional box braids. Instead of using the normal black or brown hair you can have fun with some out of the ordinary colors like pink, purple, blue, yellow etc.  I mean why NOT. If it’s the summertime and you are out of school or your job allows you to experiment with color then go for it! Let your individuality and color show through your hair.

Fulani” braids

The Fulani Tribes of West Africa inspire these braids. This braided style is killing the game this summer. There are so many different and creative ways to rock this style. I remember years ago I first saw this style on Alicia Keys back in 2002 and it is back!  I would caution those who have thin temples or a thin hairline against this style as the tension may cause and further weekend your edges. But if you have a strong and healthy head of hair, then this is perfect and sooo in style! “photo credit: IG @jessleewong
