Khloe Kardashian, 31, is the queen of braids and she’s shown us how the look can work from day to night. With all of the music festivals and other summer events coming up, boxer braids are the perfect style to wear in order to keep your hair out of your face while looking super trendy! Read on for expert tips on how to DIY Khloe’s braids.
Sofia visited the Pierre Michel Salon in New York City for a hair makeover and the results were just amazing. After colorist Nikki Kearney gave Sofia a beautiful new color, Expert stylist Mia Moore broke down the braids for us. First, section the hair off. “Create 2 inverted braids [also known as upside-down cornrows] starting in the front all the way to the back,” Mia says. “If you have enough hair, you can make four braids, and put them together in a braided bun in the back of the head — this is how you create the Khloe Kardashian effect!” So cute. “For a glamorous bun of braids, you’d need to have really long hair, or you can add in extensions to reach the desired look,” Mia advises.

Both Khloe and her sister Kim have rocked the sexy style. If you really want to jazz it up, braid a thin gold rope into your hair just like Khloe has been known to do! For a look that’s more Kim-like, be sure to rock head-to-toe black and a giant faux fur, if you can swing that. Anyway, we’ll be sporting these braids all spring and summer long!
