To change up your style from your regular routine, considering taking a cue from your childhood and go for a braided look. Now that you're older, you won't be resorting to the classic pigtail style that many young girls wear. Instead go for a braided bun or a loose front braid.
Braided bun. This style is ideal for ladies with longer hair. Before starting, you'll need to apply some hair products. To get the right texture, work a bit of mousse into your hair along with Steiner Stay Put Extra Firm Finishing Spray. To get a braided bun, pull your hair up into a ponytail and braid it all the way down to the end. Wrap the braid around the center of the ponytail and clip the end to your hair.
Front braid. No matter how long or short you hair is, you can pull off this trend. Take a small section in the front of your hair and braid it about 3 inches down (this measurement can be increased and decreased according to your preference). Instead of adding an elastic, spray on some Stay Put Extra Firm Finishing Spray and you'll be good to go!
