As an established hairstylist with a wealth of experience, Linda shares her insights and tips to help you achieve the perfect braid look. Whether you’re going for a laid-back vibe or a more polished appearance, Linda’s expertise will guide you in the right direction.

Hair Type and Texture

For men with thick and medium hair, Linda suggests a variety of braids such as the Dutch, fishtail, or French braid. However, for those with fine hair, she recommends adding volume with dry shampoo or a texture spray and using a sea salt spray to create grip. Linda emphasizes the importance of using a light hand with products, as too much can weigh down the hair and make it slippery, leading to a less secure braid.

Face Shape and Braids

When it comes to choosing the right braid for your face shape, Linda’s advice is simple. For round or square faces, a braid that starts at the top or close to the forehead can help add height to the face. If you have a high hairline or a long face, a braid that starts lower on the head can create a more balanced look. For those with a heart-shaped face, Linda suggests softening the braid by gently pulling it apart.
