A few months ago, Kim Kardashian-West, Kylie Jenner, and Khloe Kardashian all started posting Instagram selfies with their hair in braided pigtails… and everyone freaked out. The braids were quickly duplicated by supermodels like Kendall Jenner, Hailee Baldwin, and Gigi Hadid, and were then coined “boxer braids” by… well, actually, I don’t know who started calling them that.
The best thing about braids: There are so many ways you can wear them. Rock yours in a chignon,wrapped around a topknot or even upside down. Get creative and try one of these stunning styles next time you need a change.
