    How to Style:

    Part your hair down the middle and separate it into two sections. Apply a small amount of styling oil for added shine and a smooth finish. French braid each section, starting at the hairline and moving towards the back of the head. For something a little bit different, create an ‘inside-out’ braid by crossing the plaiting sections underneath one another rather than over.

    Once you have reached the nape of your neck, secure in a little bun with hair grips and spritz on a little hair spray for added hold. For a more casual look, pull out some strands at the side.

    How to Style:

    Apply volumising mousse to damp hair and roughly blow dry. Pull your hair up, leaving some further small sections out for the moment. Twist your hair into a bun on top of your head and slightly tease and backcomb the small sections until the desired “messy” level is achieved and then wrap these around the bun in different directions. Use hair grips to secure the strands underneath.

    Apply a stronghold hairspray to hold your do in place.

    How to Style:

    Sweep your hair over one shoulder and separate it into two sections. Take a small piece of hair from the outside of one of the sections and bring it over and across to the inside of the opposite section. Repeat the procedure using a small piece of hair from the other section. Pull tight after each time and keep going until you reach the end of the braid, securing it with a hair tie.

    For a more casual look, spray a little salt spray into your hair before styling. Try a French braid version that starts at your hairline and meets the fishtail braid at the nape of the neck.
