The ladies over at The Beauty Department seem to be quite fond of braids and well, you can't really blame them I suppose. A braid is a great way to jazz up your hairstyle or to quickly and neatly tie back your hair. They've taken the time to post a few great tutorials for us to try:
Emily, from Cupcakes and Cashmere, posted a great tutorial on how to make an oldie but a goodie, the fishtale braide as seen in this photo of hers:
You can find the tutorial here.
Other classic braided looks, the side braid and the front braid, really you can't go wrong with either. The front braid is fantastic for those of us with curly hair. Try adding some ribbon to tie your braid or weave it throughout the braid for an added twist!
Do you rock braids?
