Oversized Braids: Fall’s Latest Trend at Your Hair Salon in Anchorage, AK

Oversized Braids: Fall’s Latest Trend at Your Hair Salon in Anchorage, AK

September 27, 2018

Big, bold and beautiful would be the best way to describe the latest hair trends coming down the runway and into our hair salon in Anchorage, AK this fall. Braids are making a comeback! From chunky box braids to intricate, braided up-dos, these trendy, oversized braided looks are hard to ignore.

At Studio FX Hair Design LLC, we can create oversized braids that can go anywhere from the gym to your office Christmas party. There’s plenty of options on the spectrum of braided looks to take you from understated to bold. If you are looking to try this latest trend as part of your fall look this season, here’s everything you need to know about oversized braids.


It’s not where you end, but where you plait that matters. Your hair plait is where your braided look begins. Plaits that begin just behind your ears, milkmaid-style pigtail plaits, can give you that sweet, girl-next-door look. But if you want to liven things up, you can add colorful highlights or accessories. For bolder, bigger looks, you can start the plaiting at your hair part and twist your hair into box braids or French pleats.

Braided buns

Braided buns that go from the everyday to the special occasion are another braid trend we saw on the catwalks this fall. Hair is braided at the back of the head and then fashioned into an S shape at the nape of the neck, leaving strands of hair free, to create a playful, romantic semi-up-do. For bolder, bigger versions of this style, add hair extensions to have more hair to play with.

French braids

A new take on the French braid is always welcome. French braids can be classy and functional, which makes them a perfect look to go from your work presentation to a night out. This fall, the trend is to begin the French braid right at the parting line and plait the hair tight against the scalp, but once the braid is shoulder length, securing it with an elastic band and leaving the reminder of the hair loose. This combination creates an aesthetic that’s understated, but still uniquely surprising.


Even the simplest oversized braid can be taken up a notch with the right accessories, and there are plenty of hair accessories making a comeback this fall—everything from vintage velvet ribbons to bohemian scarves, and even butterfly clips and feathers. Feel free to express yourself with accessories, and don’t be afraid to go eclectic by mixing different types of accessories together.

No matter what oversized braid look you’re interested in trying this season, the experts at Studio FX Hair Design LLC can help.
