We’ve seen them dancing around from the gym to big screen productions, like in Million Dollar Baby. They have been an underdog for quite some time, and we had an eye on them for many good reasons. Now it’s definetely their time, as they have been worn by many famous faces and even made their appearence on the  NYFW. It’s official, the coolest hairstyle for 2016 are double braids, better known as boxer braids.

But how to get them? We got you covered. You’ll need thin elastic bands, a tail comp (to help you keep a precise part) and hairspray. If you’re a newmie, then you should ask the help of a friend to achieve it, but don’t give up, we’ve all been there. Let’s start. Create a strong center parting. Now, apply some texturizing product so that the hair won’t slip away while you work on the braid. Keep braiding downwards creating a “dutch braid”. Arrive at the back of the neck, where you’ll fix a first hair tie. So, continue braiding the hair ending the hairstyle with another tie, letting the braid lay on your shoulders. `E Voila!

Even though braids were born on the rings, they have adapted and are now able to pull off any look at any time of the day, either for a casual evening out, at the office or a romantic date. Many are the celebrities seen wearing this style from Kim K and the whole Karsashian clan to Hailey Baldwin and Vanessa Hudgens.
