Trend Alert: Unexpected Braids

Over the past week, we've noticed many different types of braids popping up in our feeds. We aren't talking traditional french braids or fishtails, but rather, braids that intertwine, braids that accentuate hair color, and braids that are loose and unrefined. We were inspired by the many different types, so today's roundup features all different types of shares. The colorful blue and brunette share from @kirstyn_yanniello and the sherbet-colored knot braid by @ramsaymarstonhair have us particularly excited.
