Trend // Boxer Braids

Boxer Braids 1
I'm not one to follow the trends, but you know I'm a huge Kardashian / Jenner-fan (don't hate, okay?). So when I saw Kim and North flaunting their boxer braids on Instagram, I had to try them myself. Boxer braids are - hence the name - popular with female boxers when they're about to step in the ring and beat the shit out of somebody: no locks of hair clenched to your sweaty forehead or blocking your view and the braids look fierce as well.

There are various takes on this hairdo, but I decided to go for the classic boxer braids first (see above). Did I mention that you get a facelift for free? Getting the braids isn't painless, especially if they start pulling on those baby hairs, but I received so many compliments. Plus, it's the perfect alternative for those who'd like to try something different, but aren't willing to go drastic at once.

What do you think about this trend?

Kim Kardashian seems to be the queen of boxer braids lately and even her daughter North is joining her. And how cool is that platinum blonde hair color? #FanGirl #SorryNotSorry

Kim's half-sister Kylie decided to go for a pastel rainbow colored wig at Coachella and I'm literally in love with the result. She went for a slightly different take on the braids by braiding them underneath the hair instead of on top.

Rita Ora decided to go for a sweeter, more playful look, let a couple of locks out here and there.

  1. echt een zalige trend
    maar mijn haar heeft zoveel laagjes, het zou hier echt niet lukken


  2. I love braids in general, but since I have a lob, it's impossible to do this, apart from leaving it open freely xD
