[Instahair] Party hairstyles: opt for braids to stand out from the crowd!

To have fun with your hair and to stand out from the crowd whilst being the height of fashion, be inspired by these five Instagram accounts chosen carefully by us, as they combine the most beautiful hairstyles with braids – a hot look this winter.

As part of a romantic chignon, or a rock chick or bohemian chignon, braids can subtly decorate your hair or create a full-blown sophisticated hairstyle. Highly on-trend this winter 2016-2017, they give you star quality so you can go from one year to the next looking fabulous. With several levels of difficulty, you are bound to find the hairstyle of your dreams on one of these inspiring Instagram accounts.

1 – A romantic bohemian look

Jenny Strebe’s selected hairstyles on her the confessions of a hair stylist account include lots of curls, sophisticated chignons and plenty of colour. With looks designed mainly for long hair, her account has a wide range of ways you can wear braids, such as this romantic combo: hair worn down with fine braids. Easy to emulate, the hairstyle is enhanced by a highly sophisticated colouring technique which you should only copy by having it done by a professional colourist. Home colouring is sure to have catastrophic results for this look!

2 – A regal look

Sophisticated without looking stiff, unnatural and overly formal, this hairstyle spotted on Allie Liliokalani’s account is representative of the hairstyles chosen by this pretty hair stylist. She loves playing with hair by combining natural looks and elaborate styles. Relatively simple to create for stunning effects, this look requires a good length of hair. It combines three techniques: backcombing on top, a braid on each side and a de-structured chignon at the nape of the neck. The two braids are then pinned to the upper side of the bun. To personalise your hairstyle, feel free to decorate it with hair jewellery.

3 – A punk look
