For long hair

There is something seriously fabulous about this relaxed French braid - don't you think?

very loose fishtail braid - twisted in at the crown and held in place with the help of bobby pins and gravity - would look gorgeous studded with flowers or pearls.

Multiple strands of braids make for a super-boho, oh-so-luxe look.
