Dutch braids, aka 3D braids, aka reverse braids — whatever name you go by, you know what we're talking about. They're the sister version to French braids with one major difference: Instead of crossing the three strands of hair over one another to create a braid, you're crossing them underneath. This weaving technique gives the illusion of the braids sticking out from the head. They're a great hairstyle that's perfect for any occasion. Whether you want to pull your hair out of your face for a workout (and look good doing that), have a casual date, or even the most glam evenings out, you can wear a Dutch braid variation that's sure to turn heads wherever you go. Not to mention, you can also do Dutch braids on all hair lengths and textures. Trust us when we say the possibilities are seemingly endless. Ahead, check out 12 Dutch braid hairstyles worth trying.

We're used to hearing about gray hair as it relates to aging, but the truth is, gray hair makes for a great all-over color, too. That's right, we're talking about intentionally dying your hair gray or silver. The hue is surprisingly versatile and looks amazing on all different complexions and hair lengths, which is why celebrities specifically have taken a liking to this hair color.  For years now, popular stars have even chosen to go gray on purpose because silver hair is a power move. Whether you're someone who's looking to accept their grays or want to try the gray hair trend, scroll through for further proof that there is a silver lining in going gray.
Wavy hair is that in-between curl pattern that can bend and shape to whichever way you desire. Whether you're looking for an effortless beachy wave or want to emphasize those deep S-waves for a Hollywood glam moment, the options for styling wavy hair are seemingly endless.  That's why we gathered 21 wavy hairstyles that you can try. From wavy updos and half-up half-down styles to varying lengths, these wavy hairstyles will serve up some serious inspo. 
The half-up half-down hairstyle is a consistent look we've seen throughout the decades.

It's a timeless look due to its ability to give you the best of both worlds — hair out of your face while still showing off the rest of your length. It's also super versatile as it works for everything from down-to-there long hair to bob haircuts. Moral of the story? You can't go wrong with a half-up half-down hairstyle. To prove it to you, we gathered 20 looks to pull inspiration from.
