This is my favorite braided hairstyle, and it's actually pretty simple to do!

Tiny braids from each side of your hair, pulled across to make a band, and fastened with a boddy pin or clip behind each ear.

It's so pretty!

Maybe not the best for humid summer days, but ideal for indoors (air conditioning) or cooler nights.

2. Braided Bangs
