If you have a penchant for braided hairstyles, we have a treat for you! The braided chignon and French braid ponytail featured above are two of the prettiest plaited looks we know, and they both work really well with medium-length and long haircuts.
The question is, which one would you be more likely to wear?
Despite the sophisticated finish, this elegant updo is deceptively simple. It's really just a regular French braid with the ends rolled up under the hair at the nape of the neck, then pinned. This is the kind of hairstyle you can wear just about anywhere because it's as practical as it is pretty!
Styling tip - Mist your completed style with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to get a high-shine, flyaway-free finish.
French braid ponytail
This hairstyle is perfect for the girl on the go. The French braid detail puts a cute spin on a regular low ponytail and, because you only have to braid to the nape of the neck, it's faster to style than a full French braid. On top of that, this hairstyle is easy to dress up or down as needed, and it looks especially gorgeous with a lightly disheveled finish.
Styling tip - Muss your finished look by spraying it with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray, then gently brushing your fingers from the back of your head to the front.
