Boxer Braids, as misleading as they sound… don’t involve anything, even remotely close to boxing! We bet, like us, you’re wondering why the HECK they’re called boxer braids?… Once upon a time, the word “boxer braids” was a term that wasn’t even in our dictionary … They were originally known as ‘Dutch braids’…
Boxer Braids have become a cult, cool girl staple, and even all the “IT” celebrities can be seen rocking this effortless and awesome hairstyle… From the likes of the Kardashian clan, Huda Beauty to Jennifer Lopez… even the ordinary female can be seen rocking this trend on Instagram!
At Beauty Hooked, we decided to give this hairstyle a little twist, with the help of our Pro-on-board Bushra, we added some fiery makeup to the mix… to create one of the most stunning and sexiest looks!
How to “Boxer Braid” Step-by-Step
Step 1: Take some hair at the top and separate it into 3 equal sections – left, middle, and right.
Step 2: Take the left section of your hair and cross is under the middle section.
Step 3: Now take the right section, and cross it under the middle section.
Step 4: Now start adding more hair to your braid by taking a small section of your hair that’s already down on the left side, and combine it with the current left section.
Step 5: Cross them both under the middle.
Step 6: Now do the same thing on the right side by taking some of your hair and combining it with the right section.
Step 7: Cross that combined section under the middle section.
Step 8: Continue doing the same thing all the way down until the nape of your neck. Add more hair in on the right, cross under the middle. Add more hair in on the left, cross under the middle.
Step 9: Continue doing the same thing all the way down until the nape of your neck. Add more hair in on the right, cross under the middle. Add more hair in on the left, cross under the middle.
The look can be seen above, it involves a bold eye and a very subtle lip color! And, of course, the hairstyle is fleeky as anything!
