YouTube never fails to provide us with endless amounts of inspiration, entertainment, and, well, whatever this is. On the beauty front, it’s easy to get lost watching people sculpt cheekbones from thin air, turn themselves into Angelina Jolie, and deftly create the most intricate hairstyles. In honour of Braid Week, we’re highlighting the most jaw-dropping, downright mesmerising braid tutorials ahead for your viewing (and perhaps copying) pleasure. Elastics ready? Keep scrolling for the best braid tutorials on YouTube!
Double Dutch Braids
Fish Hook Braid
Blogger Forever Cryssy makes box braids look easy, and we can't stop marveling at the stunning final result.
This dreamy halo braid is perfect for those with longer hair, and it's incredibly versatile; flaunt it at a wedding, at brunch, or even at a music festival. You'll need a few pins (Lady Jayne Bobby Pins, $3) to keep it in place.
We have no words for this braid-within-a-braid-within-a-braid, except whoa.
Mixed Milkmaid Braid
This intricate milkmaid braid mixes a fishtail braid with a traditional three-strand braid, and the results are mesmerising.
This infinity braid, also known as a Celtic knot, will have you totally transfixed. And we love that vlogger C'erine Babyy shows how to do it on her own strands.
