FLOWER BRAID: Create this pretty half-up and half-down look with this tutorial. Start by gathering a section of hair from both sides of your head and pulling it into a small ponytail in the back. Braid this and then tug at sections to loosen it (this creates a sexy, slightly messy look). Spin the braid around into a bun and secure it with bobby pins.

Lace Headband Braid Separate hair into two parts: first two inches at forehead from ear to ear and put everything else in a ponytail. Basically braid across the crown, but only add hair from the front. Easy peasy.
