Dreamy spring hairstyles from tumblr 2016: Braids & How To

Braids are a popular hairstyle for spring and with popularity, comes possibilities, as more and more bloggers, vloggers and hair stylists give them a go, more and more looks are created.

It turns out they are also popular to sketch, this sketch of 20 different braided looks has been circling on social media for a while now, it is definitely aesthetically pleasing. 

So now it is officially spring time with summer on the way and some sunshine finally reaching the UK I figured it was a good time opportunity to show you how to achieve these looks.

Of course, it takes practice and patients to get your hair looking like a wonderful sketch, but it is worth it and any one can do it, even if your hair is a medium or short length, there is a braid hairstyle somewhere in there for you (the half up, half down styles work on everyone).

From left to right, top to bottom, here is how to achieve the braid looks:
