French Braided Maiden

A few braided styles are easy to copy, and this French braided maiden is only one of them! Start a French braid on each side of the head. If the hair is long enough, tuck the ends into the plaits and secure with pins. Loosen up the twists and the crown to achieve a softer finish. Letting some strands hang around the face and nape area makes the look more natural.

This long hair down style is perfect for a blonde layered cut. By doing a blowout, layers will pop and add more movement to a straight mane. Both the style and chop are crucial so that the hair doesn’t seem so flat.

Long Beautiful Locks

Achieve the look by styling your long beautiful locks with coiled curls. Comb the hair, and that should create the loose wavy curls. Lift the tresses to where you like to position the ponytail, then secure it with an elastic. Spread the hair out and use a mousse to scrunch the strands, adding natural texture and expansion. The payoff is more dramatic when you have brown hair with medium density.

This blow it out in style looks gorgeous and is easy to copy. Your hair must be long and with medium-length layers. The blowout effect happens when you blow the hair dry and enhance the movement by adding a few soft curls. When styling, mist hairspray to retain the curls if need be. Feel free to jazz it up by adding some bangs and painting the tresses with a beige blonde hue.

Smooth Layers And Bangs

Smooth layers and bangs work best on women with natural waves. The texture is what will add movement to smooth layered hair like this. When prepping, blow the locks out and use a brush for easy control. Feel free to touch up the wavy and curly hair or strands if the style needs more body.
