15 ideas de peinados con trenzas para cabello corto, medio y largo

Las trenzas son uno de esos peinados que nunca pasan de moda. Son populares por un motivo: Los peinados con trenzas son fáciles de dominar (después de todo, la mayoría de nosotros aprendimos a trenzar el cabello en la primera infancia) y el resultado es diez veces más espectacular que la cola de caballo regular. Pero cuando piensas en trenzas, probablemente imaginas peinados con trenzas para cabello largo, como trenzas tipo corona o cola de pez. Aunque son un clásico, no tienes que ser Rapunzel necesariamente para lucirlas. Hay muchos otros tipos de trenzas, también para cabello corto y medio.

Si bien gran parte de tu elección de peinados con trenzas depende del largo de tu cabello, no debes olvidar el factor habilidad. Si tienes una melena hasta la cintura pero poca destreza con las manos, una trenza complicada no es una opción. Por eso hemos optado por peinados con trenzas relativamente fáciles para hacerlos tú misma. Y lo que es aún mejor: Algunos son tan creativos e interesantes que no terminarás pareciéndote accidentalmente a tu mejor amiga. Estos son algunos peinados con trenzas lindos y fáciles, para todos los largos de cabello.


You would think that short hairstyles wouldn’t be able to hold a braid, since you only have a handful of hair to style. And it’s kind of true, because the shorter your hair, the tougher it is to braid. But with some creativity and a little braided hairstyle inspiration, you might be surprised at all of your options for cute braid hairstyles. Just make sure to lock in your look with a flexible hairspray formula, since even a few loose hairs could make one of these styles unravel completely. Still, they’re worth the risk.

Simple Side Braid

Simple doesn’t mean boring. In this case, it’s downright elegant, and it works for the office as well as it does for date night. And not only is it a versatile option for all hair lengths, but it’s also a really easy braid hairstyle to DIY—because if you have fingers, you can do this one. Starting at the very front of your part (whether that’s on the side or down the middle), begin braiding a basic plait using two-inch sections of hair, which creates a larger, deeper braid. Once you reach the ends, pull it back and pin it in place so it lies flat against your hair, or tuck behind your ear.


Braided Bangs

Bangs usually require some type of commitment—but this braid hairstyle for short hair gives you the freedom to hide them whenever you feel like it. (Though, of course, it also works if you don’t have bangs.) The point is, it’s like a headband in that it gets the hair out of your face so you can focus on what it is you’re doing—catching up on your favorite TV series, doing your nails, whatever. French braid either your bangs or a front section of your hair, keeping them close to your hairline, and then tuck the end under your hair.


Dutch Braid Updo

Want to try something different with your hair without a ton of work? Look no further. These matching Dutch braids dress up an otherwise simple, center-parted hairstyle. Just use a clip to wrangle the rest of your hair as you work and to keep the lines straight while you’re weaving them so that, like this, it looks clean and polished. Finish it off with a medium-hold hairspray, like Garnier Fructis Full Control Anti-Humidity Aerosol Hairspray, to keep hair in place.

Double Dutch Top Braids

Even most pixie styles can pull this braid hairstyle off. Simply part your hair in the middle, weave your hair into two Dutch braids directly back on either side, and pin the ends in place. Leaving the rest of your hair loose gives it the same casual vibe as any half-up half down hairstyle.



If you have a lob or longer—that is, the ends of your hair hit your collarbone—you’ve got medium-length hair. Braid hairstyles for this length tend to be easier to DIY than a braid hairstyle for short hair, but they’re still less complicated than long hairstyles, since you still can’t (or don’t have any reason to) really work with intricate updos. Whether you happen to have dexterous hands or not, there are easy braided hairstyles for this length that are worth the time and practice.


Dutch Braided Headband

There aren’t many braid hairstyles that don’t start at the hairline, which is what makes this so out of the ordinary. Starting from your left ear, just weave a fat, Dutch braid across the crown of your head. For this particular look, you don’t want a frizzy, messy braid, so prep your hair first with a smoothing cream that fights frizz, like Garnier Fructis Smooth Air Dry Anti-Frizz Cream. It’s guaranteed to make it look polished.

Double-Dutch Braids

These are not one of your average Dutch braid hairstyles. This hair look works for any length - if your hair is short, long or medium, or happen to have layers in your hair. These braids can look great, especially if you’re rocking a messy, imperfect vibe that will keeps the French braids from looking too prim. Part your hair down the middle. Then, braid either side (either regular or Dutch braid style depending on your skill level) and secure each one at the end. Use your fingers to pull the plaits (gently!) in order to get a little more hair volume and a piece-y look.


Wraparound Simple Braid

This braid gets bonus points for looking like a waterfall braid, but not requiring the four hands and 360-degree mirror needed to actually do a waterfall braid. This French braid simply wraps around the back of the head and ends in a little ponytail on the opposite side. It’s great for straight, fine hair, which tends to lack the grip needed for bigger braid hairstyles.


Top French Braid

This single braid hairstyle still stands out. A French braid is a streamlined and minimalist braid, and you get bonus points for keeping hair sleek and smooth on the opposite side of it. Make sure the braid itself is puffy and textured, because it’s that contrast that makes this look so cool. Work a texturizing product, like Garnier Fructis Beach Chic Texturizing Spray, through the center section of your hair before you braid to get that gritty, matte look.

Braided Ponytail

No dexterity whatsoever? No problem. A single, basic braid woven all the way through your ponytail turns the gym staple into a cool braid hairstyle that works as well for a date as it does the beach. To keep it looking polished, first pull your hair into a high ponytail at the crown of your head. No one will blame you if this braid hairstyle ponytail is all you wear in the summer.


Loose Fishtail Braid

An ideal way to show off highlights and natural waves, this fishtail braid hairstyle starts at the front and ends somewhere in the back. The key is to braid just a small section of the hair (think of it as the hair equivalent of an accent nail). Try it on second- or third-day hair; dirty hair has the texture and grit needed to keep this one in place. In a pinch, try using a texturizing spray or dry shampoo to fake it.



The world is your oyster. Long hair means that any and all braided hairstyles are fair game, so really, the only thing you can do wrong is not wear a braid at all. There’s a downside, though: Some braid types, like waterfall braids, can get super-complicated. If that’s your jam, go for it (no one will blame you if you have to watch—and then re-watch—a hair tutorial), but if not, there are plenty of foolproof braided hairstyles for long hair to choose from.

Mermaid Braid

No fins required: All a mermaid braid takes is some big waves (naturally) and your own two hands. You don’t even need to be a braiding pro to pull this off. All it takes is one medium-sized braid in the center. Then, braid the rest of your hair around the original braid. The key to the mermaid vibe is volume, so prep your hair with a volumizing mousse (try Garnier Fructis Sky-Hi Volume Mousse) and finish it off with a volume-boosting hairspray to keep it in place all day.

Boxer Braids

If you happen to have a blunt haircut (a.k.a. without any layers) sleek boxer braids like these takes it to the next level. The thick cornrows date back to ancient Africa and work especially well with natural hair. First, section your hair into two parts. Starting at the hairline, braid one section Dutch-style all the way to the ends and secure it with a hair tie. Repeat with the other section. To keep your braids polished and sleek, prep it with Garnier Fructis Anti-Humidity Smoothing Milk while it’s still damp.

Upside-Down Dutch Braid

Dutch braid hairstyles require some serious arm strength, but the edgy result is usually worth it. A single thick Dutch braid, reaching up from the nape of the neck to the crown, is no exception, taking the ballerina bun up a notch. The stunning result makes it one of the best braid hairstyles for prom. A word to the wise: Secure the braid with one more pin than you think you need. It’s worth it.


Half Up Half Down Fishtail Crown Braids

Here’s how to upgrade the fishtail braid: Split it into two and turn it into a crown braid for a braided half up hairstyle. It makes for a delicate, half up half down hair look and, if you’ve already mastered the fishtail braid, takes just a few minutes to create. Pin your easy braid hairstyle in place with bobby pins to keep the vibe elegant and polished.

Think of this pretty, romantic braid hairstyle as the perfect desk-to-date night hairstyle. With two French braids beginning at the crown and moving back through the hair, it’s office-appropriate in the front. But the braids meet at the nape of the neck in a half up or full ponytail—there’s your party in the back. To add oomph to your down hairstyle with braid detail, use a body-boosting product, like Garnier Fructis Texture Tease Dry Touch Finishing Spray, to add major waves and volume to your ponytail.
