Braid for every occasion

The Gym. The last thing you want to deal with while you’re working on your fitness are pesky loose hairs and flyaways, so a sleek, pulled back look is best. Enter the tried-and-true basic braid with a twist. The beauty of rocking this polished, classic braid at the gym is that it’s the perfect hybrid of practicality and pretty.

Work. As women, we are on the constant quest for a work-appropriate hairstyle that reflects our unique style, yet is still professional. Problem solved. High in style and low on prep time, the braided bun will seamlessly take you from Manic Monday to Casual Friday.

A Night Out on the Town. Whether its dinner and dancing, a dinner date, or a wild rock concert, evening outings are the perfect excuse to take walk on the wild side. And for us, a hip, braided updo (we love the multi-braided bun) gets the job done. If you really want to turn heads, pair the hairstyle with a jeweled smoky eye. Get ready to rock and roll!

A Formal Affair. Sideswept Braid. We love any excuse to don a cocktail dress and heels and style our hair in loose, luscious waves. This summer, give those locks a boho twist, by adding a sweet undone braided bun. Step it up a notch by adding a headband!
