Dark roots and light ends are especially pretty with curves or coils which soften the transition between levels. Face framing layers add bounce and movement creating visual flow and a lean shape with balanced weight. The effect is soft, flirty and sun kissed, perfect for transitioning into spring.

Braids are a beautiful way to add texture to your strands, and this technique, which weaves together different sizes of plaits, creates an especially complex and visually interesting surface. The style is simple to create and looks great with dimensional color techniques like ombre or hand painted highlights. Wear this braid on its own or use it as an accent to beachy waves.
