The next time a bad hair day rears its head, throw on a hat, try a braid in the back! The chapeau brings mystery and the braid brings charm, upping the cool factor of any outfit. Instead of classic two or three strand braids, you can go fishtail or French, or even braid a few different plaits and knot together for more visual interest. With Fall’s arrival, wearing a hat with your favorite trench is a chic outfit option. Click style notes for tips on making a great exit with this low back braid.
Step: Before braiding, mist dry hair with refinish dry shampoo. This adds texture and grip, which makes it easier to braid.
Step: Gather hair into a low pony in the back, split into two or three (depending on the type of braid you want) chunky sections and braid around the bottom of the hair line.
Step: Have your hat sit on the top of the braid, creating a frame for the visual accent.
