Men Braid Hairstyles – 20 Fashionable New Braided Hairstyles for Men

Braided Hairstyles for Guys – Braided hair being solely for girls has become a thing of past; the guys have mastered the art too! Many men have been braiding cornrows for years and would probably never consider any other hairstyle.

Now though, men’s hair has taken a whole new leap into a broader spectrum and what better way to get noticed? Long hair, short hair, viking styles, plaits and buns have all worked their way into the fashion sense of guys worldwide. Even floral accessories have been spotted out there in the masculine world of braids so there is no reason for guys to fear looking too feminine.

Instead of braiding the entire head of hair, some men choose the undershave with a top braid. This is a popular style which balances the masculine and feminine styles. Some african american men have beautiful thick hair which can be braided into stunning fishtail plaits and dreadlocks. Some caucasian men have lushus locks braided into fine plaits and viking styles.
