What’s the latest and greatest in hair? Beads and braids make a beautiful combination and we thought we’d show you what we found. We, the BHH trendspotters, sifted through Pinterest and the world wide web to bring you 5 bold and unapologetic styles to inspire your next hairstyle! Sit back and let your eyes take it all in:
Use Darling’s Abuja Braids to achieve this look: A braided ponytail and fringe. Load up the beads onto the fringe and what you have is a work of art. The beauty of adding lots and lots of beads is that they weigh the hair down, creating a beautiful effect.
A beaded bob is a unique way to express yourself while having immense fun at the same time. Again, you can use Darling Abuja braids(short) to achieve this look in the colour of your choice. If you’re looking to try something new, you will enjoy this. Add some 4 beads at the ends of your bob and finish them off with a cowrie shell or 2. Simply stunning!
Cowrie shells and cornrows sounds like the name of an amazing TV show filmed on the Jamaican coast. They go so well together! Try to infuse a couple of shells into your beautifully braided hair for an experience that will enrich your life. Finish off the baby hairs with the African Pride Silky Edges for a smooth finish. Hello exotic beauty. Nice to meet you.
Instead of using one type of bead, why not get your hands on a few variations and mix them? Install some bomb Fulani braids and add the beads to the ends and get ready to bask in your glory. Because you will be more than turning heads!
We love these editorial beads that Darling Kenya did on their instagram page. They incorporated wooden cubed beads spelling out their name. Definitely looks good for the ‘Gram and in editorial photos!
