Say Hello To The Braided Hair Trend You Didn't Know You Needed

With more time on our hands, we have even more time to experiment and create new trends and the latest hairstyle to hit the internet is everything you didn't know you needed. Although passion braids––a dope new fusion of traditional braids and passion twists widely inspired by self-taught, Miami-based stylist, The Boho Babe––rose to popularity nearly a year ago, it's quite clear that this trend isn't going out of style anytime soon.

While some passion braid styles mimic box braids, goddess braids, or regular passion twists, this style can be done using the knotless or crochet method. Passion braids, which are traditionally created using water wave style hair, may not be as long-lasting as some styles but they sure are cute AF.

If you're thinking of trying out this trend but you're still on the fence, here's all the inspiration you need to rock passion braids the right way.

What would you do if you just got laid off from your corporate job and you had a serendipitous encounter with someone who gave you the opportunity of a lifetime? Tamara Taylor was faced with that decision in 2013 after she was let go from her sales profit and operations coach job in the restaurant industry and met a then-up-and-coming stylist, Law Roach, on a flight to L.A. She and Roach struck up a conversation, and he shared how he was looking for someone to run his business and was impressed by her skills. While she took his business card, she was unsure if it would lead to anything. But, boy, was she wrong. Two weeks later, after packing up her home to move back to her hometown of Chicago, she called Roach; he asked if they could meet the following day, and the rest is herstory.
