If just hearing the word braid makes you start to sweat, try this easy alternative. While a twist looks as intricate and complicated as its counterpart, it’s much simpler and doesn’t require any extra practice. This style can also be pulled back into a ponytail or done with a side part and only twisted on one side. The simple look keeps hair out of your face and takes only a few minutes, but keeps you looking pulled together all day long.
