With summer comes new trends and the most popular hair craze that hit social media this summer was hair piercings.
They may sound odd, but they are the perfect way to jazz up everyday braids and add interest to a simple hairstyle. The piercings are fastened through the braids, ensuring they stay in place, which makes them an ideal low maintenance festival hairstyle. Braids have made a huge comeback this year and, with our 2016 model Shelby sporting the popular look, it’s easy to see why. Adding hair piercings adds an edge to braids and, as they come in a range of styles such as hoops, studs and spikes, they are really versatile. Take a look at some of our favourite pierced hairstyles below and get inspired by this creative new trend.
This stunning plaited up-do is given an edgier update with the addition of studs and hoops. The wispy, textured style adds a carefree feel to the look, making this style ideal for a casual yet put-together hairstyle.
Classic silver jewellery looks amazing against this vibrant pastel blue hair. As well as spikes and thicker hoops, delicate leaf-shaped jewels are used, creating an elegant finish.
These intricate cornrows, along with the silver hoops, give this look an urban edge. The added glitter adds an element of fun to the style and would work perfectly for festival season or special occasions.
Interest is added to these impressive braids by adding delicate heart and star shaped charms for a personalised look.
