"Braid metal chains": this season's on-trend missing link hairstyle

Say goodbye to dull hairstyles lacking in character! Make way for hair jewellery – metal chains to be precise – to give all your up-dos a feminine rock chick look. We take a closer look at 5 ways to adopt this new trend which is all the rage on Instagram.

The chignon with chains

Charming and rebellious, this semi-bohemian semi-rock hairstyle is enhanced with multiple silver chains. This puts a new twist on the braided chignon .

To create this “rockmantic” hairstyle, get your hands on a hair clip or a small comb with several metal chains attached. Start by gathering your hair towards the back and separate your hair into two equal sections. Then put in the hair jewellery in the middle of the two sections of hair to use the chains as the third section of your braid. Then, braid your locks making sure that you put the chain section over the top of the other sections to showcase it. Hold the hairstyle in place hairpin by hairpin, gradually working your way down the braid to form the chignon. Once the tips of your hair are hidden, leave the ends of the chains visible, hanging down at the back. They will decorate the nape of the neck and create an even more feminine look.

Ponytail jewellery

Are you not skilled enough to braid chains into your hair? Do not worry, there are less complicated hairstyles out there so you too can adopt this trend. For example, opt for this simple and elegant version of the ponytail, enhanced with golden chains.

To recreate this look, use a simple elasticated hairband decorated with a few mini-chains or conceal your hairclip by fixing it mid-way up at the back of your hairstyle, before tying your hair into a low ponytail. Make sure that the metal strands get mixed up with your locks so that the metal chains stand out like highlights. Golden and subtle, they make your hairstyle more sophisticated in the blink of an eye!
