If you're a boho-chic type babe, you'll be totally in love with the crown braid. In addition to keeping hair off your shoulders and away from your face, crown braids give you a romantic, sophisticated look that works well with just about any outfit. To re-create the look, braid your hair on each side of your head, then pull them to the back of your head and pin them together into a crown shape. Secure the braids with bobby pins and accessorize with a decorative pin!
Braided buns have recently become popular thanks to A-listers who have adopted the trend for the red carpet. They're also a great way to turn a casual, lazy-girl hairstyle into a chic holiday-appropriate 'do! Whether you French braid from the bottom up, and top off your look with a bun, or wrap a braid around a low bun at the back of your head, this look will be sure to add the perfect amount of glam to your holiday look!
HALF-UP, HALF-DOWN BRAIDS
For a romantic and sensual touch, add a half up half down braid to straight, curly or wavy locks. To do this, simply braid small strands of hair in any place on your head, then pull them back or to the side to allow them to fall seamlessly into your shoulder-length style.
