Braids are always in. Whether you are trying to keep up with the latest trends or just style your second day hair, there are braids that are both age appropriate and easily achievable. No matter how you look at it, a braid is the perfect way to finish your look. Watch the video and then check out these tips for making braided hair your own:
1. Half Up, Half Down
There are a couple of ways that women of any age can sport a braid. One of those is the ‘half up, half down’ style. Simply plait one thin braid on each side of your head and then join them together in the back. This looks great any day but it is the perfect ‘second day’ hairstyle.
2. Side Braids
Side braids are easy to do, and they can be sporty and casual or polished and sophisticated. Recently, side braids have even been seen on the red carpet. One great thing about this hairstyle is that it is okay to be messy! Sometimes, the messier the braid, the better.
3. Finish it Off
When it comes to braiding, some of the most important weapons you can have in your arsenal are texurizing spray, dry shampoo, and fun hair accessories. If your hair is just not cooperating and you need to create friction, both texturizing spray and dry shampoo are the perfect tools. Spray your hair or simply dust with dry shampoo and then braid.
Finally, really give your braid that finishing touch with a sophisticated hair accessory (or a fun, flirty one!).
