Two braids are a great way to switch up your look. They’re easy to do and don’t take too long, either. You can either do a French braid or an inside out fishtail. If you go with a French braid, use only two sections of hair at one time (one in each hand) instead of three like you would with a regular braid.
7) Curly Dutch Braid
A Dutch braid is fun way to add texture and interest to straight or curly hair. The good news about a Dutch braid is that it works with a variety of different styles. You can have it up, down, or in any kind of half-up style. It’s also easy to switch from using three or more braids to using just two braids once you get used to creating them.
8) Half-Up Half-Down Updo
This is an elegant hairstyle that looks great on all hair lengths. It’s a favorite among women of all ages and can be dressed up or down depending on your outfit. To achieve it, you’ll need a clip, comb and some bobby pins. Start by grabbing a large section of hair at your crown, then twist it upward and secure with a clip behind your head. Then grab another section below it and repeat until you reach the ends of your hair.
