Hair trend: Boxer Braids
February 23rd, 2016
Scrolling through Kim Kardashian Instagram, I fell in love with her new hair style :the boxer braids. What are boxer braids you ask?, well they’re basically double French braids, but with a twist. And this hair trend, just work wonderful for me.I have very long hair, I love it but I have to admit that when I run/work out is kind of not comfortable.
It’s not only a great protective hairstyle (one that keeps your hair and ends tucked in and shielded from factors like extreme weather conditions, while still promoting growth), but it’s low-maintenance, convenient, and cute.
Today I give you a step by step guide on how to get the boxer braids look, I hope you like it 🙂
Chequeando el Ig de Kim Kardashian, me enamore de su nuevo estilo de peinado: las trenzas de boxeadora!. ¿Qué son trenzas de boxeadora te preguntarás?, pues básicamente son trenzas francesas doble con un twist. Esta tendencia para el cabello a mi me va de maravilla. Yo tengo cabello super largo y lo adoro pero reconozco que cuando corro/entreno no es nada cómodo.
Esta forma de llevar el cabello no solo lo protege sino que también requiere de mu poco cuidado además de hacernos lucir super cute 🙂
A continuación les doy una guía (en inglés) de como hacerse las famosas Boxer braids, espero que tengan una excelente semana…Xx
Blowdry hair until it’s smooth with a paddle brush. For very coarse and curly hair, use a flat iron to straighten the hair post-blowdry.
For fine hair, spray the hair with dry texturising spray and brush the product through the hair. Using a pin tail comb, create a deep center part from the hair line down till the nape of your neck. Divide hair into two parts, tying up one side to keep them separated.
Rub a pea-sized amount of rough wax through your hands to give you some grip.
Take a section of hair close to the hairline and further divide the section into three parts. Start braiding tightly and close to the scalp, adding hair from the left and right as you go along, working down the scalp.
You start the same by divide the hair in two and starting with a triangular section at the hairline. You divide your triangle into three even pieces of hair. With a French plait you tuck strands of hair under the plait. With a Dutch braid you take it over; you reverse it. When you get to the bottom section and there is no more hair to gather, switch to a classic plait. Tie the ends with a clear elastic band.
Repeat this process with the other side of your hair.
Once complete, spritz hair with fine hairspray to keep the style in place and to remove any flyaway hair
