Braiding Hair: A Beauty Icon of Today
Kim Kardashian appeared on the cover of the August issue of Allure with a blonde long braided hairstyle. In the cover, a stunning 15-foot braiding extension entwined Kim Kardashian from her head to her toe like an art exhibit.
The meaning of 15-foot braiding of Kim Kardashian
Braiding was hugely popular but largely among Black women, but when the beauty icon Kim Kardashian made appearances wearing braided hairstyles often, many influencers started copying her styles. Fashion retail websites started to list braiding extensions, and many braiding technique videos are flooding YouTube covering various styles including Kim Kardashian’s hairdos. Although 15-foot long braiding might not be practical to wear in a daily life, the cover inspired many by encapsulating the beauty of long braid. Now, braiding hair is becoming a familiar item among White women, too.
Ponytail long braiding hair
Long braided ponytail has become a popular fashion item. Above all, it is easy to style to begin with, and various colors of extension hairs are readily available in the market. So, you can simply purchase a pre-styled braided ponytail or create a ponytail style with any braiding extension. Also, they go well with casual to formal outfit in all seasons, and you can mix and match freely, making it a global trend for women.
Trendy looks by Black female influencers
Long braiding hair has been used widely by Black women, but the symbolic long braided hairdo by Kim Kardashian made it viral. More and more influencers are posting their unique styles. A notable trend among influencers’ posts is that they are almost always featuring long hair that falls below the waistline and nearly touching the thigh.
Sleek edge is a key point
The final touch of a style is always at taming the edge. When you wear a long braided ponytail style, the highlight goes to the neatly combed over hair for a clean look. You can edge the baby hair if desired, and you can also create various moods using different parting, colors, and hair accessories.
