To help keep your sections clean, divide your hair into three separate sections. Leave the first section you will braid untied.

Wrap up the end of each braid into a mini bun and pin it in place at the nape of your neck. This creates a textured chignon effect in the back that鈥檚 SO pretty.

Pump up the volume, people! Get on board the backcombing train and build serious height into your locks. The added volume and texture will help to set the base for this super simple look.

Step 2: Smooth It Down

Buttttt let鈥檚 not get carried away ;) Gently take the ends of your comb and smooth the outer layer of your hair. Be careful not to flatten the work you just did though!

BRAID #3: Fishtail Crown

FestivalBraidsForOffice13

The perfect braid for short haired gals (like me) is a messy fishtail. This baby frames your face with just two bobby pins to hold it in all in place!

Step 1: Create Your First Fishtail

Style a fishtail braid on one side of your head and use a small elastic to secure it. Then, tuck it behind your ear and separate the braid by gently tugging on the strands of hair to make it look loose and unkempt.

Step 2: Same Fishtail, Different Side

Repeat the same fishtail braid on the other side of your hair.
