A Pop Of Color: 10 Beautiful Peekaboo Braids

by Maria Konou

Peekaboo braids aren’t a new fad. They have been around for quite some time already. However, they have been gaining quite a bit of popularity in recent years, thanks to their beauty and versatility. This braid style is actually a variation of peekaboo highlights, in which splashes of color are hidden beneath a layer of hair. I had peekaboo highlights a couple of years ago in purple, and they looked amazing. Here, the concept is the same, but instead of your hair flowing wild and free, it’s in stylized braids. These braids are super appealing, as they can be as subtle or bold as you like. Plus, they can be worn in many ways – from buns to ponytails. If this hairstyle sounds like something you like, then check out some of the wonderful styles I’ve collected as inspo.

Understanding Peekaboo Braids: What Are They?

Peekaboo braids are a super cool and unique hairstyle. In this style, all the hair is in braids. However, some braids are dyed in bright, bold colors or softer hues. This allows the colored hairs to peek through the natural hair colors, which creates a fun and playful effect when the hair moves. One of the best things about this style is that you can experiment with a bunch of different colors without having to dye your whole hair. Plus, there are many styles of braids and ways to style them. According to Ted Gibson, a renowned hairstylist and expert, peekaboo braids give you even more freedom to experiment and express yourself. Gibson says that this style can be changed in many ways to fit hair of all lengths and types, giving your look a completely unique look.

Colorful Peekaboo Braids

Adding a pop of color to your braids is a fun way to add some personality to your hair. Braids have been around for centuries and come in many different styles, from micro braids to box braids. And while this hairstyle is loved all around the world, braiding is a very important part of many African American and Latino cultures. This is because the thick, wavy hair of these cultures works best with braids, as it holds them better. But braids aren’t just pretty; they also help protect the hair. If you want a fun, new hairstyle, then you need to check out these beautiful peekaboo styles.
