Braids and updos are so in this summer. The best part? They don't have to look impeccable! A few stray strands here and there can add an air of effortless sexiness to your look.
Try these simple pulled-back hairstyles that you can pull off at work.
The Trend: Low Fishtail Plaits
To do, just braid your hair loosely, starting from your nape. Then, chic it up by attaching a cute pin or brooch over the elastic.
Tip: Apply mousse beforehand to keep your plaits in place.
The Trend: A Loose Bun
Start by gathering strands into a high ponytail, then tightly braid the tail until the ends. Next, wind the plait around the base of your ponytail and secure the ends with a hair pin.
Tip: For smoother hair (and less frizz), comb conditioner through strands, rinse, then comb again to seal the cuticle before drying and styling.
