Goddess braids are all the rage right now in hairstyling. Besides cornrows and box braids, this African-American-inspired type of braids make any woman look effortlessly amazing. So amazing, in fact, celebrities are sporting this amazing hairstyle everywhere. Goddess braids are feminine, intricate, sophisticated and beautiful. Their advantage is that because of the braiding technique, goddess braids can last longer than a French braid for instance and, as a bonus, they add a touch of extra glamour.
Today we have prepared a gallery featuring ten celebrities that are rocking goddess braids – we promise a few surprises along the way, so let us see them!
- Cardi B
The American rapper Belcalis Almanzar by her real name manages to make a long-lasting impression with her two low pigtails featuring super-long goddess braids. This hairstyle emphasizes her facial features and accentuates her personality and her style.
Along the years, Rihanna took us by surprise with her numerous hair colors and hairstyles. However, a goddess like her sports a mean hairdo with two-tone short classic goddess braids that only emphasize her vibrant personality. Rihanna is a trendsetter in her own right, as her braids also come in a seductive shade of violet, the color of the year 2018 and probably one of the most amazing nuances for an ombré styling.
- Kim Kardashian
Just like Rihanna, Kim K also played with hair colors and haircuts along the years. The beautiful celebrity chose a blonde color for her long hair she further stylized with two low goddess braids to enhance her facial features. What you need to observe is that Kim K also follows trends – her platinum blonde comes with gray roots – the next best shade to wear this year if you want to stand out from the crowd.
- Cristina Aguilera
You can count on Cristina to take your breath away with every appearance. Her 3-tone goddess braid style works perfectly with her skin tone and, in this picture, with her sexy and mean dress. The mix of blonde, pink, and blue braids adorned with hair accessories make Cristina an icon for this year’s hairstyle trends.
- Kendrick Lamar
If you thought men could not sport goddess braids – their style – you are in for a surprise! American rapper and songwriter Kendrick Lamar looks neat, slick, and sexy with his thin braids that only draw attention to his amazing smile.
- Lupita Nyong
You can always count on Lupita to impress you with her sophisticated elegance, unique style, and amazing looks. She sports goddess braids like no other, in an intricate bun. If you pay attention to her hairdo, you can notice the attention to the detail: jumbo goddess braids swirled on top in the bun, thin cornrows on the side and thin goddess braids in front, to emphasize her facial features and create a complex look.
- Letitia Wright
This gorgeous celebrity seems to love to follow the trends and make an astounding appearance. She chose one of the trendiest nuances of the year – auburn – and one of the most beautiful hairstyles to allow us to enjoy her beauty. The updo consists of thin goddess braids neatly gathered in a swirl bun. We all have to admit this hairdo made Letitia look amazing in the Black Panther movie.
- Danielle Bregoli
American rapper Danielle Marie Bregoli-Peskowitz, you may know as Bhad Bhabie, is also a trendsetter when it comes to fashion and hairstyling. The goddess braids she features in this picture create a beautiful combination with her voluminous ponytail. Her goddess braids look even more feminine and sweet as they take on the classic cornrows.
The style is wearable and invites to variations. You can braid your tails and gather them in a low bun or follow Danielle and finish in a fluffy ponytail. Danielle also sports one trendy hair color of the year, which only confirms that redheads will never go out of fashion.
- Kylie Jenner
American television personality, model, entrepreneur, socialite, and social media personality Kylie Jenner took us by surprise in the past years changing various hair colors and hairstyles. She rocked silver hair with the same charm she rocked ebony black hair. We fell in love with her black and white cornrow-inspired goddess braids – the perfect hairstyle for beach days. It seems Kylie loves braids and braid styles, as her famous Coachella hairdo is now a style icon.
- Snoop Dogg
You can expect Snoop Dog to look and act completely out of the box every time he makes an appearance in public. While we are used to his braids and tails, we have to admit Snoop still makes everybody smile and even applaud his fashion and hairstyle choices. A veritable icon of unconventionality, Snoop Dog will always wear goddess braids like a god.
