Insta Trend: Colorful Braids

Share Tweet Pin

What's the hottest thing on the 'Gram, you ask? Two words: colorful braids. It's no surprise, considering festival hair was all the rage this summer. And as we wave farewell to the sunny season, what better way to celebrate the final days of #Summer16 than with spunky braids? Intertwining a pop of color into braids is nothing new, as the trend has been spotted for centuries. But, recently, it's become more and more popular–especially online! And we're loving it. We've got the scoop and a little Insta inspo to get you ready.

The scoop: There are two ways you can go about doing this, whether you're afraid of commitment or a daredevil in the hair coloring department. If you're looking for something temporary, consider clip-on colored extensions. They're easy to take out and don't require any up-keeping. If you dare to take it to the next level, opt for at-home hair dyes or seek a professional colorist.
