These whimsical double plaits are the perfect way to show off a full-spectrum of candy-hued hair color.
- Distribute moisturizing hair styling milk through damp hair with a wide tooth comb for hydration and suppleness.
- Blow dry hair smooth with a large round brush.
- Divide the hair in half vertically from top hairline to nape.
- Beginning at the hairline, begin braiding, feeding in the hair from the sides to keep the braid close to the scalp.
- Once the hair is past the nape, continue braiding the hair. Secure the end with an elastic.
- Return to the top and gently widen and loosen the braid, pulling on the sides.
- Repeat on the other side.
Unraveled Rope Braid
Some of the coolest braids this fall are actually simple twists.
- Apply hair styling jelly to damp hair and distribute with a wide tooth comb.
- Beginning at the nape and working up the head, blow dry hair in horizontal sections with a large round brush.
- Flip all hair to the left side.
- Create a two-strand rope twist braid, beginning at the front right hairline.
- Direct the braid diagonally toward the left, following the front hairline.
- Braid by taking diagonal partings, feeding hair in from the top and underneath.
- When you reach the left ear, continue braiding down the lengths to the ends and secure with an elastic band.
- Loosen the braid for a deconstructed look.

Happy yellow hair color brings the mellow to this lazy, half-and-half braided hairstyle.
- Apply a dry texture styling foam to damp hair and air dry the hair, scrunching to encourage texture.
- Once hair is dry, mist with texturizing spray and loosely curl mid-lengths with a large curling iron. Stretch each curled section to produce a relaxed wave.
- Create a Mohawk-shape parting from the front hairline and from temple to temple on each side.
- Beginning at the hairline, start braiding the hair, feeding in sections from each side.
- Secure the braid just above the round of the head.
- Loosen the braid to create a loopy, disheveled shape.
Flipped Fishtail Braid
This fishtail braid adds visual interest and texture to loose, beachy waves.
- Mist damp hair with a frizz-controlling spray.
- Blow-dry hair straight with a round brush.
- Gently backcomb the top section to create soft volume.
- Leaving the sides loose, direct the top section back toward the crown.
- Create a fishtail braid with the top section that extends from the crown to the ends of the section.
- Secure the braid with an elastic hair band and conceal the elastic hair band with a small strand of hair.
- Use a curling iron to create randomly placed, loose waves on the bottom section.
- Mist the braid with texturizing hair spray to provide hair volume and loose definition.
Halo Braid and Tail
- After shampooing, apply a rich, leave-in hair cream to control flyaway hairs. Comb through with a wide tooth comb for even distribution.
- Blow dry hair with a cushioned styling brush for smoothness.
- Create a deep side part from the right hairline to the crown.
- Beginning at the part, create a French braid that includes hair from the front and top.
- Braid around the head to the opposite side. As you reach the back, begin incorporating hair from the bottom and top.
- Once the sides meet, continue to braid the lengths and then secure the ends.
- Gently enlarge and loosen the braid, and let a few tendrils fall free.
- Place a few pins to secure the braid at the base of the head.
- Mist with texturizing hair spray.
