The most unexpected new way to wear your necklaces

‘Braid chains’ are going to be everywhere in 2017

Braid chains are the latest hair accessory to add some razzle dazzle to a simple 'do'.

First spotted on the 2017 SAG Awards red carpet where The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby wore a braided updo with a tangle of silver chains elegantly woven through it, the look has quickly spread.

The look was created by hairstylist and Adir Abergel, who used a silver chain piece from his new metal hair accessories line—a collaboration with Sara Bieler Sasson of Lelet NY.

For the awards ceremony, Abergel wove the silver chain into Vanessa's textured and deconstructed braid to create a contrast in textures with the soft romantic braid and edgy and sleek chain.

The chain that Abergel designed is attached to a comb, which makes it easier to secure in the hair. To really keep the hold, Abergel suggests backcombing the part of the hair where you're going to insert it.

He designed this hair piece specifically so that it could work with different lengths and be incorporated into any hairstyle.

These hair chains can easily be worked into any type of braid to add an edgy and sleek charm to the romantic braid.

With hair pieces becoming edgier, we've got a feeling this won't be the last you'll see of these heavy metal hair braids.
