Ready to ring in the new year? We are, and we'll be jumping head first into 2015 with some fresh, fun hairstyles! These three braided looks are hot off the runway so they're sure to keep you on-trend all year long and, best of all, they're easy to achieve no matter what your hair type!
Half-up side braid
Half-up hairstyles are a great way to style your hair without losing any length. If you're looking for a way to add some extra detail to the look, you can't go wrong with this side braid!
Get the look: Starting with wavy hair, spritz it through with a texture spray. Loosely smooth the hair back on each side, stopping just behind the ear on the left and bringing the hair from the right all the way over. Once you've joined it, divide into three sections and braid for 4-5" before securing with a clear hair tie.
Looking for a hairstyle that turns the classic braid upside down? Then this would be the one! Several braids are joined together to create this unique updo.
Get the look: Create three French braids (one in the center of your head and two on each side) and secure the ends with hair ties. Smooth the rest of the loose hair back and join it with the braids, then shape them to create a small chignon. Secure with pins and fix with hairspray.
Tousled classic braid
Combining both the braid and "undone" hair trends, this tousled classic style is an easy win. No need for any fancy techniques here! After all, why fix something when it isn't broken?
Get the look: Starting with towel dried hair, spritz it through with wave creating spray and then twist it in several sections. Once it's totally dry, loosely smooth it back and create a low braid. Secure the braid at the end with a hair tie and then use your fingertips to pull small wisps loose all over.
So, which one will you try first?
