Man Braid Hairstyles That Can Jazz Up Your Everyday Look

Curious about man braids? Check out these easy hairstyles.

A man braid is a plaited hairstyle that can spice up men’s medium-length or long hair. Nowadays, braids for men are becoming trendier, with different types being seen on runways and on the streets.

If you want to experiment with this hairstyle for men, check out these ideas to help you get started.

1. Low Man Braid

Starting off with a basic low braid is probably the easiest way to get in on the trend. To get the look, just sweep your long hair back and divide it into three sections. Cross the right section over the middle section, then cross the left section over the new middle one. Continue doing this until you reach the tips of your hair. Then, secure the ends of your braid with a hair tie.

Editor’s tip: Tight hairstyles like braids can cause breakage. So, we recommend washing your hair with Dove Men + Care Strengthening Shampoo. It has Trichazole Actives and caffeine that strengthen your hair, so they grow uninterrupted by hair fall. 

2. Man Bun Braid

Man buns are already cool, but you can still amp them up by braiding your hair before tying the tip into a bun. Try this braid for men on hot and humid days when all you want is to get strands off your face and neck.

Editor’s tip: Don’t let dandruff put a damper on your hairstyle. Use CLEAR Cool Sport Menthol Anti-Dandruff Shampoo for Men. It has Triple Anti-Dandruff Technology, which helps in removing, resisting, and preventing dandruff while getting rid of dirt, grime, and grease. It also has cooling mint that leaves a fresh feeling on your scalp. 

3. Twin Low Braids

Try these low, pigtail braids if you want something fun and perky. Just divide your hair into two sections and braid each. Don’t worry about your braiding skills—a little mess can make this hairstyle look more laidback and interesting.

4. French Braid for Men

This hairstyle is great for when you want your hair out of your face but you want something a little more stylized than the typical half-up pony. So, maybe it’s time for you to practice creating a French braid, don’t you think?

5. Cornrows

It’s similar to the man bun braid but instead of one braid, you create several before you put the rest of your hair into a bun. Cool, huh?

6. Double Braids For Men

Double braids are often seen on women, but they look just as good on men too! They’re perfect for when you want to keep your hair away from your face. This style is most useful when you’re doing a lot of sport activities since it keeps your hair in place.

7. Undercut with Braids

Contrast your man braid with an undercut haircut for an added edge to your braided ‘do. You can either tie your braids back or let them loose for an effortless stylish look.

So what do you think? Rocking this hairstyle anytime soon? We say, go for it!
