How to Mixed Colour Braids & 25 Cute Mixed Colour Braids Hairstyles

Mixed colour/color braids are a great way of breaking the monotony of getting black braids.

For many braided hairstyle lovers, black is always the go to color when it’s time to get a new braided hairstyle.

If you, unlike many people, love a good pop of colour in your braids or a blend of different colours, this article is for you.

We’ll cover how to do different mixed colour blends for braids and popular mixed colour braids combinations.

Mixed colour braids come in different variations.

You can either opt to mix different colours or have different colours braided in different sections.

How to blend mixed colours for braids

Start by deciding how many different colours you want to have in your braids.

This could be anywhere from 2 colours to as many as 5 colours.

Take the braiding hair out of their individual packs and hold them together in one hand.

Take small bits of braiding hair from each individual colour and mix it in with the rest of the hair.

Keep doing this even after you run out of hair in each individual colour and there’s a mix forming.

Make sure you’re occasionally combing through the hair as a whole to avoid tangling the hair.

Do this repeatedly until you’re contented with the end result.

Apply some hair food on the blended mix and comb through the hair again as a whole using a wide tooth comb.

For a detailed visual, refer to the video below.

How to do mixed colour box braids

Depending on whether you’re going for traditional box braids or knotless box braids start with parting clean and stretched hair into your desired parts.

Use shine n jam and a lot of precision in your parting to ensure your braids will look neat and have clean parts.

Should you opt for the knotless braiding method-why shouldn’t you?- start by braiding your natural hair and gradually feed in small bits of braiding hair as is the norm in knotless braids.

To avoid being repetitive, refer to this blog post for a detailed knotless braids tutorial.

As mentioned earlier, you can either opt for a colour blend on your mixed colour braids or individual colours done on different parts on your head.

Lay your edges and apply some mousse on your head after you’re done with your mixed colour braids.
