When we talk about weekend hairstyles, braids seem like an easy, go-to choice. Just a quick plait or two and we're free to enjoy the rest of day the way we want. Whatever be your agenda for the end of the week, we've got the hair department covered with these three super easy braided hairstyles that will protect your precious locks and have you looking chic in no time:

Two-in-one Power Braid

1/ Two-in-One Chunky Power Braid

This braid has all the power and all the fun going for it. It is high-strung to make a big impact but carefully tousled to add an element of excitement to the look. If you haven't yet shampooed your hair, just spritz your roots with some dry shampoo and massage the product through your scalp. Rake your hair up in a high ponytail and then braid the pony into a power braid. Tug at hair sections to create a tousled finish; spritz some hairspray and off you go!

2/ Chunky Side Braid

When you sleep past the snooze alarm and get off with a jolt only to realize that you have to meet a friend for brunch, just pump a tiny amount of volume inject mousse in your hair, gather all your tresses on one side of your neck and plait it down in a regular braid. Use a toothbrush to gently muss-up the weaves and create a deliberately undone, chunky side braid. Loosen up your hair on the top and sides to lend a voluminous, '70s-inspired retro feel to the 'do.

Pigtails with a Quiff

3/ Pigtails with a Twist

Despite their inherent schoolgirl charm, you can totally rock pigtails at any age! Add a quiff in front and transform your regular braids into a statement hairstyle. Spritz about 2 inches of your forehead-framing hair with high lift creation spray, tease it a little to build volume and height and secure it as a quiff with the help of bobby pins. Divide the rest of your loose hair into two equal sections and braid them into low pigtails. Mist your hair generously with some hairspray for long-lasting hold and step out in style!
