Another great thing about braids is that they’re versatile. They can work in updos, half updos, and if your natural hair is already in plaited braids, you can sculpt them into gorgeous hairstyles. You can even plait braids together for a look with extra texture and a pretty finish. And then we get into all of the different styles. Fishtail, waterfall, Dutch braids, I could go on. They all look beautiful by themselves, but when you combine them together and they can look even better together.
