Braid Chains Are Taking Over Our Instagram Feeds And We’re Already Obsessed

We can't wait to give braid chains a go...

Braid chains have arrived, and we’re pretty sure you’re going to love them as much as we do.

We’ve only just recovered from the announcement that Kim Kardashian is bringing back pierced nails – but apparently, it’s not just chain nails that are in for 2017.

We have a feeling that everyone will be wanting in on the chain reaction after The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby was spotted rocking the heavy mental updo at the 2017 SAG Awards. Her look – which featured stunning chains woven into an elegant braid – was created by hairstylist Adir Abergel.

Adir posted this picture of Vanessa’s hair, revealing how he’d intricately twisted silver necklaces into her loosely braided updo.

But the best thing of all? He actually designed the chains himself.

The Adir x LeletNY collaboration features a stunning mix of gold, silver and brass jewellery made exclusively for hair.

Chain details by Adir Abergel and LeletNY coming soon. #adirxleletny #mixedmetals #hairaccessories

The chains that Adir has designed are even attached to a comb, meaning that the style is much easier to achieve than it looks.

Sadly, the Adir x LeletNY chains are yet to be released. But in the meantime, hair lovers have taken to Instagram to share their own braid chain inspired looks. Because, why not give it a go with one of those broken necklaces you’ve probably got stuffed at the back of a draw at home?!
