6 Easy Braided Hair Looks
Braids are a wish come true for long and short cuts alike. Try one of these easy grown-up twists. By Didi Gluck
Does your hair take more time than it should? If you’re reading this, the answer is probably yes. The experts are here to help, with seven styling shortcuts that will streamline your routine.
For this style, the longer your hair, the better. Part it the way you like, then separate a one-inch section of hair at each
temple and clip those sections out of the way. Gather your remaining hair at the nape of your neck. Then create two or three
low braids, securing the ends with clear elastics. Twist each braid until it curls into itself; bobby-pin in place. Last,
unclip and twist the two pieces by your temples. Pin under the braided bun or, for a slightly fancier flourish, tuck their
ends into the bun before securing.
