What Are Lemonade Braids?
Lemonade braids are named after Beyonce’s “Lemonade album”. You can see Beyonce’s gorgeous side cornrow style braids throughout her videos. What makes lemonade braids so great is that you can choose any style of braid and turn it into lemonade braids as long as you braid the tresses to the side.
Gorgeous Lemonade Braids
We have gathered some of the most gorgeous lemonade braids below to help give you ideas to make your own unique style.
Beautiful Lemonade Braids
Lemonade braids with color are all the rage. Choose a bold shade like red and accent it with a gold wire wrap for some contrast and interest.
Blonde Ombre Lemonade Braids
Lemonade braids and ombre are two great hair trends that look stylish together. The layered coloring in ombre hair adds visual flair to medium lemonade braids.
Chunky Lemonade Braids
Big lemonade braids that curve to the side resemble an ornate crown. Amp up the regal effect by wrapping chunky side-swept braids with wire and charms.
Cornrow Lemonade Braids
These thick lemonade braids get added texture thanks to the cornrow technique used. Cornrows are braided close to the scalp using an upward motion that creates raised rows of hair. While they’re usually done going front to back, they can be done to the side to create lemonade braids.
Duo Lemonade Braids
Wind skinny lemonade braids all around the scalp in intricate patterns for a complex and interesting style. Keep most of them to one side, but arrange two to the other side for visual balance.
Goddess Lemonade Braids
Feed-in lemonade braids are similar to a cornrow version of lemonade braids. Hair starts natural at the scalp, but eventually, synthetic hair is woven in a little bit at a time. This technique will make your lemonade cornrows long and luxe.
Gorgeous Classic Lemonade Braids
These skinny blonde lemonade braids are reminiscent of Queen Bey. While side braids have been around for a long time, they were rechristened lemonade braids after Beyoncé wore them in her Lemonade visual album. These gold-hued side braids are worthy of the iconic Beyoncé herself.
Jumbo Lemonade Braids
Jumbo lemonade braids make a big impression when they’re laid out straight as a ruler. These thick braids are visually stunning, and also relatively easy to lay in and take out.
Lemonade Braid Bob
Short lemonade braids can have just as much style as long lemonade braids. This lemonade braid bob is sleek and chic and won’t weigh you down. Protective hairstyles don’t just protect your hair – they can also protect your neck from overly heavy braids.
Lemonade Braid Ponytail
Pulling up lemonade braids in a ponytail is a great way to add sporty style to a classically sleek look. Putting your side braids into an updo will look cool while also keeping you cool during a workout.
Lemonade Braids with Beads
Lemonade braids aren’t just for adults – little girl lemonade braids are on trend as well. Adding large beads onto braids has long been a favored adornment for young black girls. Adding beads to lemonade braids is a fun modern twist on this style.
Lemonade braids look great with a pop of color. These black and blue braids can be achieved with synthetic hair or by weaving yarn into your braids.
Long Beaded Lemonade Braids
Lemonade braids with beads are an ideal hairstyle for people who like their hair to have character. In addition to adding beads to the ends, you can add some sporadically closer to the root to balance out longer.
Long Blonde Lemonade Braids
Long blonde cornrows are a sleek and sexy variant of lemonade braids. Sunkissed tresses show their variation when arrayed in skinny side braids.
Long Blue Ombre Lemonade Braids
Kids are experimenting with fun hair colors earlier and earlier, as seen in these blue ombre lemonade braids. Weaving colored synthetic hair into braids makes them longer and allows you to add vivid colors without bleaching or damaging hair.
Long Lemonade Braids with Wrap
Long skinny braids to the side get some added pizzaz with ornamentation. You can add in beads, and bind some skinny braids together with string wrap to add visual interest.
Ombre Lemonade Braids
Purple is the color of royalty, and purple ombre lemonade braids will help you look like the queen you are. Use shades from pale lavender to deep violet, and coordinate it with lilac eye shadow and aubergine lipstick.
Pink and Blonde Lemonade Braids
If there’s anything better than lemonade braids, it’s pink lemonade braids. Add a touch of pink to long blonde side braids for a new twist on strawberry blonde tresses.
Adorable Lemonade Braids with Wrap
Add extra style to your side lemonade braids by wrapping some of them with colored string. This is a simple and healthy way to add a pop of color and is ideal for kids. Strings can even be changed out day to say to coordinate with outfits.
Red Thin Lemonade Braids
Red lemonade braids come in all different shades. Whether you go for a bright cherry red or a deep burgundy, this color can liven up your lemonade braids.
Side Parted Lemonade Braids
The classic lemonade braids silhouette features all braids swept to one side. But if that’s not comfortable for you or you just want to change it up, try a variation where braids flow down on both sides of your head. Design your style to feature a defined side part for an update on this classic style.
Thin Lemonade Braids
While there are many variations on lemonade braids, skinny braids to the side are a classic for a reason. Even without ornamentation or added colors, this silhouette is still visually engaging and stylish.
Zig Zag Lemonade Braids
One of the most fun things about experimenting with lemonade braids is figuring out how to part your hair. Arranging side braids so they zig-zag against your scalp creates interesting visual panache.
