Accent Braids
  • GET THE LOOK

Accent braids

Reinvent your pixie hairstyle with a subtle braided look. Plaited hairstyles aren’t just for longer locks – achieving braids on short hairstyles will add chic pizazz to your look and give you a whole new dimension of styling. Inspired by innocence, become a whimsical beau with an accent braid, the delicate plait for effortless elegance.

Get short hair styling perfection for your accent braid. Prepping your cropped locks with ghd curl hold spray creates a textured base, and using the ghd V gold mini styler will add volume and movement across the rest of your hair. Once plaited, keep your braid locked in with a spritz of ghd final fix hairspray.

Make a small plait go a long way. Change up your pixie hairstyle with the ghd how-to guide on accent braids.
