Even the simplest hairstyles with braids make it possible to create an interesting image that does not require too much time and expensive accessories. A correctly selected braid will help underline the shape of your face, as well as disguise some shortcomings. Braids are suitable for any situation – for sports, festive events, and as an everyday option.

In any weather, this hairstyle will retain an attractive appearance. Braiding is a wonderful solution for everyday use. In the hot weather, a woman can remove long hair with the help of intricate braiding. You can get the braid undone at any time. Contrary to the common opinion, braids do not harm long hair and also protect it from ultraviolet radiation, windy weather, and other adverse environmental effects. However, braiding can cause some inconvenience, especially if there is a habit of wearing hair loose.

For braid hairstyles, there are almost no restrictions, except hair length. Braiding is quite difficult to do with a short haircut. Owners of long and medium hair are able to implement a large variety of braids for curly, soft, smooth or hard hair. After all, the goddess braids styles are able to emphasize the femininity and beauty. Nevertheless, to master even an ordinary braid yourself, you will need a little practice and skills. Here are four braids hairstyles for practical styling on the everyday basis at home.

SIMPLE BRAIDS

To make it, gather hair after combing, and then divide it into three equal strands. The right and left strands should be taken with the right and left hands respectively. Move the right strand over the middle one and take it with the fingers of the left hand, but do not connect it with the left strand. With the free right hand, take the middle strand and tighten it so that the middle and left strands change places. Pull the remaining right strand over the middle strand and tighten it. Keep plaiting, alternating the right and left strands with the middle strand as long as the length of the hair allows it. The end of the braid can be fixed with a ribbon or a decorative rubber band.

FRENCH CLASSIC BRAIDS

First, comb the hair back. If hair is difficult and stiff, try making the hairdo when hair is a bit wet or use special styling products. Mousse, gel and hair wax will make hair softer and supple. Divide hair into three equal thick strands. Make the usual three-strand braid, gradually adding loose hanging hair from both sides. When the neckline is reached, continue making a simple braid. If desired, you can immediately fix the braid with an elastic band or leave the hair getting loose. That is, the French braid is similar to a simple braid, but it has one feature. Plaiting goes from the upper line of hair growth with the thin strands and you gradually add more hair from the top and temples.

FISHTAIL BRAIDS

It is also known as a herringbone braid. The difference from previous braids is that you will need only two strands. For that, gather your combed hair into a low and back ponytail and make two equal strands. Take one small strand and put it crosswise on the opposite one. In this way, the right strand goes to the left, and then, the left one goes to the right. Repeat it this way until your hair runs out. The main advantage of the fishtail braid is its diversity. There are many variations of such an interesting plaiting that will allow you to diversify your image. For instance, you can make two pigtails and then braid them together. The way of braiding is always the same.

MOHAWK GODDESS BRAIDS

This hairstyle is also known as Dutch braid. To make a Mohawk braid, brush first your hair back. Gather two hair strands directly behind the front part of your head. Then, take a chunk of hair in the upper part of your forehead. Begin to make the braid as close as possible to the forehead, twisting the outer strands together. Continue braiding down the top of your head. Fix the end of your braid and secure it with hairspray if needed. Following the up-to-day fashion, the sides of the head can be shaved to really look like a Mohawk woman. There are also many variants of this hairstyle to try on.

When the braid is not perfect at first, do not worry. With a little practice and proper care of your hair, you will surely be able to create cute goddess braids hairstyles in a couple of minutes. Even with an average hair length, you can use all kinds of braiding, from simple to the most complex. Some skills in making different braids will enable you to create a new interesting image each day.

CHANEL HANDLE WITH CHIC BUCKET BAG

Other Brands

Chanel-Handle-With-Chic-Bag

It’s called ‘chic’ for a reason and it could be crowned as today’s most luxurious bucket bag in high fashion. And of course, pretty comes with a price. So meet the Chanel Handle With Chic Bucket Bag from the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection.

We noticed that there are excessive handbags crafted with chevron quilting in this season. But that’s all right, because chevron is as classic as the diamond quilting. We love that the Handle With Chic is a new style and the way in which it’s constructed is also unique.

The Design

Just like the Dubai, the Handle With Chic Bag is adorned with sparkling gold hardware and no eye can escape that. The body is beautifully refined with chevron stitching, which radiates classiness.

There are two ways to handle this bag. We can either use the woven chain leather strap for should or cross body carry. The gold hardware embellished on the chain strap is shimmering together with the curved top handle. And noticed how Chanel played with black and gold and how this combination enhances the gold-effect. Btw, the handle is also partly designed with leather.

The CC logo is crafted on the top. It’s also where the bag opens and closes. The way to open the bag is kind-of simple, it’s foldable!

The Interior

Chanel-Handle-With-Chic-Bag-3

So fold the top leather open to see the interior of the bag. Inside you will find one large main compartment for all your essentials.

TODS JOY FLAP TOTE BAG

Other Brands

Tods-Joy-Flap-Tote-Bag

The Tod’s Joy Bag has gone through some changes. For those that are new to Tod’s, the Joy Shopping Bag is one of their signature handbags. It’s a large and spacious bag with minimalistic style. The latest Tods Joy Flap Tote Bag is introduced for the Fall Winter 2018 Collection.

The Design

So what kinds of changes have been made on the Tod’s Joy Bag? The first thing everyone noticed is the elegant hammer leather crafted with hand-dyed trims. We call this the front flap.

But this front flap is more than just a flap. And we’re not taking about the design. If we move the front flap up, which can be easily done, then there is a front flap pocket immediately available for your needs.

The original version of the Tod’s Joy Shopping Bag doesn’t have a flap, but it also doesn’t have a front flap pocket. And the front flap pocket can be very useful as we can have instant access to important essentials.

The flap is also very elegantly crafted. It’s engraved with the house’s logo and the long leather strap has been used as a slip-in closure.

There’s one more part that has been altered from the original Joy Bag. And that’s the line in the center. The original Joy Bag is crafted with a symmetrical line in the center. But that line has been removed and replaced with a front flap.

So the Joy Bag remains a Joy Bag. The shape of the Flap Tote version hasn’t changed. The long beautiful double handles have remained the same as well.

The Interior

Tods-Joy-Flap-Tote-Bag-5

So what can we expect from the interior? As we’ve said, there is one front flap pocket. Inside there is also 2 zip pockets, one of which is removable.

The Joy Flap Tote Bag is a spacious handbag. And the flap is perfect for the Fall and Winter seasons because it protects your personal belongings from rain and snow.
