Wrap it up

Bold printed headscarves aren’t always for hiding your hair when you’re lacking in the style department. They’re perfect for making a strong statement as a fierce headband. In this look, a bright scarf accentuates an outfit and draws attention to luscious, full braids. It’s a quick and easy way to do something different without taking too much time to accessorise. It’s also something that can be changed up really fast whenever you’re in the mood.

Chunky and funky

Where do we even begin with this one? In our eyes, this is absolute braid goals. If the bold yellow braids aren’t enough to catch your eye, the larger colourful beads should do it. With a plait across the front, there’s so much to crush on and we just love it all. With beads in contrasting shades to the braids, it’s a bright and fun way to accentuate your style. If you’re confident enough to handle all the attention, this one is for you. Go get yours, girl!

Tie it up

Hair ties aren’t only for getting your hair out of the way. When used right, they can really take your style to the next level. They’re also a little more subtle and less in your face. If you aren’t feeling the bolder accessories, then this one is definitely for you. Wear them as singles or as criss-cross patterns so that your braids look fierce and fabulous at all times.
