Dark hair looks healthier and shinier than blonde hair almost all the time. Braids on dark hair look shiny and tight. If you have flat shade dark brown hair, you can do one or a few braids on your hairstyle to get it more volume or just to remove hair from the face.
If you want to enhance the shine of your dark hair, apply a little serum for shine or indelible spray conditioner before braiding.
Even if you have long dark hair, you can braid tight uniform or sloppy casual braid that can be worn every day. If you are going to an event, updo with several thin braids, shell or volume bun with braided locks to make your look more youth and daring.
To get braided hairstyles on dark hair more interesting, twist some accessories with crystals or metal clips and bright ribbons into braids.
