Yep, it’s a thing: the boxer braid,
You must have spotted it by now. If not on the head of one of the Kardashians, then on a model/blogger/actress. Because this is probably the hottest beauty trend out there right now. Yep, I’m talking about the boxer braid. Two braids, that start on top of your head and run down, hung over your shoulders.
Braids for boxers
First of: why the name? It sounds kinda funny at first, until you know where it comes from. You see, the boxer braid actually originates from boxing. The sport, yes. Boxing ladies have been using this hairstyle to keep their long hairs out of their faces since forever.
And now we’ve adopted them as a true beauty trend. You can hardly twist your head and not see someone with one of these in their hair. Okay, that might be a tad exaggerated. But you get the point. If it’s for me, I don’t know yet. Even if it’s just because I can’t get this in my hair myself so maybe I’ll just stick to the single over-the-shoulder-braid. Doesn’t mean I don’t like some inspiration.
