Also known as the ‘double dutch braids’, boxer braids have been the hair trend that is taking the celebrity world, and the insta-universe, by storm. As seen on pretty much all the Kardashians (and North West), Katy Perry, Rita Ora and Hailey Baldwin, the boxer braid has become the hair trend of the moment, and we have to say, it’s actually pretty cool.
They’re fairly easy to do, they look good and they are perfect for every occasion, from the gym to the club. We recommend straightening your hair first so it’s easier to braid and looks sleeker, but overall these braids are easy to manage and they go with every outfit. First seen on actual boxers, the braids show our shift to a more casual way of presenting ourselves. First, it was resurgence of wearing trainers in everyday situations, then it was athleisure, the trend of wearing luxe gymwear out during the day and now we are seeing a shift in how we style our hair, opting for a much more versatile look. If you aren’t sure how to get these boxer braids, we’ve provided a great video below, along with some of our favourite stars in our favourite new hair trend.
