If you’ve seen the Kardashian’s lately, you’ve probably noticed that they’ve been rocking the “boxer braids” lately. This trend has a long history and has been worn by female boxers for decades but now thanks to hashtags and social media, this trend is now a worldwide fashion trend. Here are some of our favorite Kardashian looks with this braided trend.
Kim Kardashian Long Blonde Boxer Braids
Kim Kardashian has been seen rocking these braids in both her dark and lighter hair hues. We love this look with the platinum blonde because it perfectly blends chic color with edgy style.
Kim Kardashian Tiered Boxer Braids
Kim has made this look even edgier by created very clear parts and adding 4 braids rather than 4. There are two tight but rather chunky braids on top and two slightly smaller braids on each side. This look would be perfect for somebody that wants to create height but not width with their face shape.
Khloe Kardashian Boxer Braids
Kim isn’t the only Kardashian sister that loves this edgy pulled back hairstyle. Sister Khloe has been seen wearing these Dutch braids on many occasions. Rather she’s wearing the classic two sided boxer braids or the tiered braids like Kim, she shows us how practical this look is for keeping your hair secure and pulled back.
Kylie Jenner Boxer Braids
Kylie Jenner has also been seen wearing these braids. Although she seems to wear them for more casual looks than her Kardashian sisters, she isn’t afraid to play with this look. Rather it’s making them looser for a softer look or wearing them out around the pool, she proves this braided look is very versatile.
How To Get the Kardashian Braided Hairstyle
Stylists have seen a surge in people coming in and asking for the look, so how do you get it?
Divide the hair into two and start with a triangular section at the hairline.
Divide the triangle into three even pieces of hair. Unlike a French braid, you tuck each strand under the hair of the braid.
Essentially you are reversing the braid so the braid is on the outside – not the inside.
For a big braid, you can start the braid from lower down or in the middle of your head. Starting from the very top is going to make a smaller and tighter braid.
