It’s the updo that Kim Kardashian West wore over the holidays and chose to ring in the New Year with. In fact, she loves the boxer braids hairstyle so much she’s still wearing them.

There are so many great things about boxer braids: They are ideal for the gym or the ring (hence the name) as they pull all the hair out of your face. They add edge to any outfit, whether it's off-duty or party. Plus, they are an easy way to disguise a bad hair day. Obviously being able to braid is key, but if you're not adept at a French braid it just takes practice. Check out our boxer braids tutorial here. Need more convincing?
