Braids, Braids, Braids

Whether you’re doing one yourself, or making an appointment at Blowtique to let one of our amazing stylists work their magic, I can’t think of another style that is somehow the epitome of ease and elegance, class and casual at the same time as a beautiful braid. I don’t know if you heard or not, but we’re doing $35 braids all summer long–wait, that can’t be right, that’s way too good a deal…

Wow, it’s right here. Thirty five dollars for days of double-takes and compliments from people on the street. Fantastic deal.

But as much as we love doing braids, we also love educating about style. Chicago’s own Red Eyefeatured Rhona giving a quick and easy tutorial to a classic fishtail braid. It’s a must-watch, believe me. If you haven’t seen it, you must. In fact, do it right now, here!

In fact, we also love being educated and gaining some inspiration from fashion and style icons as well as during grandeur, star-studded events. A few weeks ago was the 2014 Critics’ Choice TV Awards and we were not disappointed with some of the hair styles that were worn.

Christina Applegate is rocking an absolutely amazing ponytail braid , while Tatiana Maslany went with that messy updo look that only someone like her seems to be able to pull off flawlessly.

ince braids are what we’re all about right now, we spotted a particularly unique and fun one at this past Wednesday’s ESPY Awards. Twenty-year-old Gold Medal winning skier, Maddie Bowman, turned heads with this one!

So as you can see, we’re braid crazy right now. Have you seen any particularly amazing braids or styles recently? Show us in the comments, on Facebook, or on Twitter as we’d love to see them!

Stay Beautiful,
