There's no doubt that boxer braids are a major hair trend this season – Kim Kardashian has been rocking the look since the beginning of the year, while supermodel Karlie Kloss turned heads with the style at the Topshop show during London Fashion Week.
Whether you're off down the gym or need a casual but polished day to night style, boxer braids are a hair style that will do it all.
The simple double Dutch braided style isn't a new one and has long been a style used by the black community, and if you want to give it a go then never fear as it's actually a pretty easy one to nail with the help of this handy FIVE step guide.
Step one:It's easier to plait tresses which are clean and knot-free, so give your locks a shampoo and condition before you start. Blowdry your hair and then spritz a touch of texture or styling spray – this will make it easier to hold the style in place.
Step two:Divide your hair into two sections with a middle parting, which goes all the way back to the nape of your neck, as if you were tying your hair into pigtails. For a smooth line you might want to use a tail comb to section off your locks. Secure the two sections either with clips or elastic bands.
Step three: Loosen one of the sections. Take a small section of hair at the front of your head, and begin French braiding. Slowly begin to add more hair so that the braid gets thicker and longer.
Step four: Keep working down the section, increasing the amount of hair you're braiding – make sure not to leave any strands loose as this style works best when it's impeccable. When you reach the ends of your locks, secure with a hairband.
Step five:Take the other section of hair and repeat, then secure with a hair band. Spritz hairspray all over your head to ensure the style doesn't budge.
