Full Braid for Long Hair

February 21, 2023 ยท by Andrea Long

I love a good hair 'do that works for any event - dressy or casual! This simple style looks great on long or short hair, curly or straight, textured or smooth. My hair has natural curls and waves with a tendency to frizz; I can fix my hair like this even on those frizzy days - a win for me! 

All you need is:

* lots of rubber bands (My hair has medium thickness; I use regular bands, but those with thinner hair can use the tiny clear ones.)

* bobby pins (optional - I use one right above my ponytail to secure it and one at the end of my hair to hold the "leftover".)

* creativity! This style can be adapted to any hair texture, length, and preference. Add some curls to the end for dressier looks. Start the braid at the front of your hair for an adorable style. Pop on a headband or add some cute clips to style a little more! You can find some cute hair accessories here.
