Dont Be Afraid to Rock the Braid: Try a higher style. Tie your hair up in a high pony, then fish tail it all the way down. This style looks great, especially is you have long, gorgeous hair. I love how this looks with the ombre as hairstyle
Separate hair into 3 sections, per usual with a braid. Braid 2 of your 3 sections into small braids and leave your third section as is. Braid the 2 braids and the section you left out together loosely and secure with a hair tie.
