Long hair is very versatile when it comes to styling it. Braids look amazing on long hair but most people do the same old three stranded one. That should not be the case as braids can be very unique. There are many types of braids that can be done with long hair, following the trend or demand of different occasions. Today, we bring to you some of the best long braided hairstyle ideas that you can incorporate in your daily life and also in special occasions.
1. Side Swept Waterfall Braid
This braid is a very elegant and easy-to-do hairstyle. It is done on one side of the head in a side swept way. You start off by taking three strands of hair and braiding them but as you advance you add some strands to it. This will give a waterfall effect to your braid and is perfect for any occasion.
2. Loose Rapunzel Inspired Braid
This braid is hugely inspired by the hairstyle of ‘Rapunzel’ in the film ‘Tangled’. Long hair is required for this one. Start off by making a loose French braid or fishtail braid and pull the strands to give volume to the hair. Add small wildflowers or flower accessories on the braid to complete this dreamy look.
3. Dutch Braid
This hairstyle is very trendy and looks great on casual outfits. It is done by dividing the hair into two and by braiding from the top while adding some hair to each strand as you go downwards.
