The head band
This hairstyle is so much fun. It mimics the look of a headband by using a small french braid right across the hairline. It looks funky and cute while keeping your hair out of your face. Whether your look is formal or casual this hairstyle will fit perfectly. To create this look all you have to do is pull your hair back into a ponytail. The next step is to pull out the section closest to your hairline. Then you start at either side of your head and french braid your way to the other side. All you have to do now is secure you braid with a bobby pin or hair tie and you have got an awesome french braided head band.
The side braid
This braid can be worn two different ways. It can be styled to go halfway back into a bun or pony tail. You can also continue the braid all the way to the very end. Both of these styles look great. To get this look you start the braid on one side of your head and braid at an angel until you have met the half way point or the end.
The french braided messy bun
This is a style that combines the messy bun and a french braid into a beautiful updo. To create this style you just french braid you hair half way back then use a hair tie to secure it. The next step is to gather your hair into a messy bun and secure it with bobby pins. The complete look is awesome and can be accessorized with flowers or other fancy clips.
