The version shown here, which works for medium-length to long hair, was created with French braids. “But you can easily re-create it with regular braids,” says Isabel Guillen, a stylist and braiding expert with the John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman, in New York City, who designed the styles in this story. Separate hair into two low pigtails. Braid both sections and secure with clear elastics, such as Goody Mary elastics ($2.50, target.com). Next, pull one braid up over your head and bobby-pin it an inch back from your hairline. Repeat on the opposite side, positioning the second braid behind the first.
