Peekaboo Braids: The Cool-Girl’s Way To Rock A Braid

If Rebecca Alexander has her way – and we hope she does – the peekaboo braid will be a big trend moving forward.

We spotted the stealth braided hairstyle while lunching with her at Republic in Union Square last Thursday (before spotting a topless paparazzo, but that’s fodder for a whole different post!) and immediately fell in love on the fresh take on the braided hairstyle headband.

The best part: anyone can rock it.

How To DIY AΒ Peekaboo Braid

Just braid a small section of your hair Β starting at the nape of your neck. To keep the peekaboo braid intact, skip a chunky hair elastic and instead heavily tease the ends and secure with hairspray – or, at the very least, use Goody’s clear polybands.

Still love the braided headband? Here’s how to do a braided headband easily!

We like to think of this as a non-permanent way to rock the effect of a bold, bright block of color-streaked hair (or full on rainbow tie-dyed hair a la Lauren Conrad back in 2011, which we still sorta love) – just a little pop of rock and roll to make us feel infinitely more chic.

What do you think? Will you rock the peekaboo braided hairstyle (because we will!)?

    Thanks ladies…so glad that I’m doing something trendy!

    My trick to this is to grab the frizziest pieces and braid them, which makes it much easier to tie the ends together without using a rubber band.
