4. The Coiled Braided Bun
Instead of creating a regular bun with your hair, have fun with this braided hairstyle. Make thin braids and coil them up around your crown. Depending on your mood, dress it high or low and conquer the day.
Pro Tip: Add some extra hair strands of brown colour while braiding to break the monotony.
5. The Jumbo French Side-Braid
Tresse latérale. Excuse our French, but unlike their food, the side French braid is pretty simple. Take a small portion of your hair near the part-line and begin braiding. Keep gathering your hair along the hairline while making the braid. When you reach the nape of your neck, take the strands of hair from the other side and keep braiding till the end. Secure it and gurl, you’re ready!
Pro Tip: Use an extension like the Darling Easy Braid Plus while braiding to lend a fuller look, that’s right!
