Get into the popular braiding trends!

Today marks the celebration of National Braiders Day, a holiday dedicated to our hair history and the hairstyles that contribute to the culture.

Since the beginning of time, braids have been our heritage. Getting braids symbolizes a rite of passage for Black people. Now braids are the go-to hairstyle all year, especially in the summertime.

Summertime is the era of braids for Black women. Once the heat turns up, it’s time to experiment with different styles that live on our Pinterest boards.

With the help of TikTok and Instagram reels finding new summer braids has become relatively easy. From Fulani braids to the y2k French curls, there are so many options to choose from.

As we wrap up the summer, there’s still time to test a new style for an upcoming trip, concert or party. Check out our top viral braid styles in honor of National Braiders Day!

Fulani Style

Fulani braids have turned into the classic vacation style with the sleek design in the front paired with a wavy texture and braid combo in the back.



Nail artist Coca Michelle, who often works with the rapper, gave her the most blinged-out manicure. Michelle covered every centimeter of Meg’s long tips with silver 3D gems in various shapes and sizes. Her manicure was as bedazzled as her mesh jumpsuit.
