Step up your hair game with two-braid hairstyles! Whether you’re looking for a casual, boho vibe or a sleek, elegant appearance, these versatile styles can effortlessly elevate your look. Expert hairstylist Linda Miller shares her valuable insights on various two-braid styles and the best practices to help you achieve the perfect look.

Embracing Your Unique Hair Texture

For those with fine or thin hair, Miller recommends adding a texturizing spray or sea salt spray to give your hair some grip. This will make it easier to create the braid and secure it in place. If you have thick or coarse hair, Miller suggests using a smoothing product or serum to tame frizz and keep your braid looking polished and neat.

Choosing the Right Braid for Your Face Shape

If you have a round face, Miller advises considering leaving some hair out around your face to create the illusion of length. If your face is long or oval-shaped, adding some volume around the sides can help balance your features. For a square face, softening the look with some loose pieces can create a more flattering appearance. Finally, for a heart-shaped face, volume at the nape of the neck can help create a balanced look.
