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
Slick down center-parted medium-length to long hair with a comb and some gel (such as L’Oréal Paris Strong Hold Defining Gel, $7 at drugstores). Secure hair at the nape with a clear elastic. Form a fishtail braid, then twist the braid around itself to create a “flower.” Pin to hold.
