Messy twin fishtail and French braids are very popular currently and they can add a fierce look to almost any facial type. Similarly the image on the right shows us that twin tails can be crossed over to make interesting designs reminiscent of a figure eight.
2011 hair trends don’t get more popular that large side braids and the very popular boho braid. Braid hairstyles have been the major style trend recently and these are two incredible examples of beautiful braids that match both the proper facial structure and hair texture.

Lanvin has been rocking the single braid a great deal compared to the twin braid looks that many other stylists offer. Check these two braid hairstyles out and see if you can resist trying them!
