These Ballerina Braids Are the Latest Badass Hair Trend

Here's one way to bring out your inner ballerina.

Braids are a fairly simple style that you can add to any hairstyle. Whether you go for fishtail braids, crown braids, or pigtails, they're easy to do and even easier to maintain. But what if you want to add something a little more to your usual braid hairstyle?

Here's where ballerina corset braids come in. If you want to add a little something extra, just grab a ribbon or a piece of string and string them through your braids. It can add an instant punk-rock look if you use dark leather or it can make your hair look like graceful ballerina shoes.

Here's how to do it:

First, braid your hair as you normally would. Whether it's fishtails, a French braid, crown braids, just go with the style you like the most.

Then grab a piece of string (a thin string, a satin ribbon, or a piece of long cloth) and secure them at the base of your braid with a bobby pin.

Next, using a bobby pin as a makeshift needle, run the string through your braids as if you were stringing shoelaces.

And voila! You've got the ballerina braids on point!
