Braids are a great way to take your hair a mile higher without the need for dying or cutting. They’re perfect for glam goddesses who love changing up their look without damaging their natural hair. Textured, curly, wavy, and thick locks are easy to maintain in sleek, vibrant braids that maximize style without requiring hours of taming your gorgeous hair every morning.

Deseo offers a unique variety of braiding techniques and braids of every style to choose from. From current trends to classic looks, achieving Instagram-worthy style is an appointment away at your neighborhood boutique salon.

The Best Braids for Every Hairstyle

The art of hair styling begins with sculpting unique looks for each client. Our certified luxury stylists have professional training and always know the latest trends. When it comes to sleek, flawless braided styles, we have the most loved celebrity styles as well as customizable looks to suit your own personal glamour goals.

Throw it back to the 90s with classic box braids. These braids never go out of fashion. You can accent them with beads, metallic threads, and a pop of colorful highlights. Box braids are ideal for protecting your natural hair while adding length. Because they’re so easily tailored to each client’s hair goals, the length, fullness, color, and style can be changed whenever a new inspiration calls. Long, elegant box braided hair is one of our favorite looks to create. But adorable braided bobs and lobs are quickly catching up!

If you’re looking for a more free-spirited, loose, and wispy aesthetic, then boho braids are a fast-growing trend. This gypsy-inspired look is perfect for thick hair that’s as untameable as your wild spirit. These braids are long-lasting. They also create a vibe of effortless chic that won’t damage delicate hair with excessive pulling, tying, and tugging. A boho braid is great for a looser braid or a whole flower crown of tighter braids to inspire the forest goddess in every woman. There are so many more amazing looks to choose from at our salon, from a single side braid to goddess, crochet, bridal updo, and twisted braids!

Are you looking for a style for a special occasion? Braided fascinators and updos are a high fashion “Yes!” for every Instagrammable moment!

Frequently Asked Questions About Braids in Denver

Are braids hairstyles trendy right now?

Braided hairstyles are incredibly versatile. They have been a popular form of self-expression and cultural identity for humans going back thousands of years. Today, braids are as popular as ever. They’re showing up on the runways during New York Fashion Week and adorning the heads of the rich and influential stars of Hollywood

In recent years, simple and elegant braids have been trending. Both braided ponytails and romantic loose side braids are chic styles. Braids that create a halo effect around the crown or a more intricate collection of smaller braids woven together are also hot hair trends that can be dressed up or down. If you’ve got your heart set on creating dreamy yet modern braids in Colorado, look no further than Deseo Salon & BlowDry. One of our hairstyling experts can bring your vision to life for any occasion. 

What are the best braids in Denver offered by Deseo Salon & BlowDry?

Our Deseo hairstylists are highly skilled and eager to make your braiding dreams come true. Whether you’re on the hunt for a straightforward French braid or a pair of flirty, beachy braids, we’re here to help. However, our experts boast various passions and abilities, so your braid options may be dependent on stylist availability. Your hair texture and length will also play a major factor in the final outcome of your braid service. This is why we highly recommend you begin with a hair style consultation. Once you sit down with a Deseo stylist, they can help you determine which braid will flatter you best.  Here are some chic and beautiful braids you might consider:

  • Romantic French Braid
  • Funky Fishtail Braid
  • Rope/Twist Braid
  • Double Dutch Braids
  • Crown Braid
  • Accent Braids

Can I book a braids appointment if I am wearing hair extensions? 

Absolutely! Many Deseo clients wear our professional hair extensions to add fullness and length to their hair. These are the two characteristics truly excellent braids need. Depending on the type of extensions you have, your Deseo stylist will be able to gather and style your hair into a finished braid that looks effortless and doesn’t give away the fact that you are wearing extensions. Come back to us again and again to try different braids!

How long will it take to get my hair braided at Deseo in Denver?

When you book a braids hairstyles appointment through Deseo Salon & BlowDry in Denver, we typically set aside 30 to 45 minutes to plait a simple, beautiful braid. These estimates are entirely subject to change, however, based on your chosen braid style and hair type. 

If your vision of a braid appointment involves a more complex braiding technique or requires an intricately woven design, it is crucial that you explain this during a 15-minute hairstyling consultation appointment. Then your stylist may recommend changing your “Braids” appointment to a longer “Updo” or “Bridal” hairstyling appointment in order to better meet your expectations. If this is the case, please be aware that your braiding appointment may take up to an hour and 30 minutes to complete. 

Is it good to sleep with braided hair?

Aside from complementing your daily look, braided hair can also double as a great protective style, especially while you sleep. Keeping your hair in braids reduces friction between the hair cuticle and your pillow. This reduces breakage as you toss and turn at night. The overlapping layers of hair assist in fighting moisture loss and locking in the nourishing benefits of reparative hair treatments like the Elixir Ultime Bi-Phase Spray Oil from Kérastase. Also, have you ever seen the gorgeous waves created by freshly undone braids in the morning? Sleeping in braided styles is the perfect, heat-free alternative to traditional styling tools because they won’t damage or fry your luscious locks.

Do you have any more questions about plaits, twists, or braided styles? If so, then please be sure to book an appointment with a Deseo hairstylist!
