If you've been scrolling through your Instagram feed lately, you might have notice one particular hair style taking over. Seen on everyone from Kylie Jenner to Kim Kardashian and even little North West, boxer braids are proving to be the hottest hair trend for 2016.

Leave it up to the social media world to step into the ring with this athletic hairstyle that is ready to take over. The edgy yet elegant 'do is the perfect style for anyone who wants to show the world that braids are indeed cool. Or, for anyone who simply wants to skip out on washing their hair after the gym (or any day really).

How do you get boxer braids? Good question. The look consists two tight Dutch or French braids parted directly down the middle of your hair.
