Have you tried the braidband and the ponytail braid? Here's another twist to the classic braid that you might like! :) Watch the video to see Coleen do the hairstyle.

  1. Divide your hair into two equal sections.
  2. Braid each section by dividing your hair into three sections. Overlap the outer sections alternately over the middle section continuously until you reach the tips. Secure your braid with a hair elastic.
  3. Take the end of each braid and overlap them over the crown of your head creating a hairband. Secure the braids in place with bobby pins.

Option: Use patterned barrettes or floral clips to add a hint of boho in your hair. Browse the slideshow below for hair accessories.
