You can never have too many easy half-up hairstyle options, so we've got one more for you: a cute braided look with a middle part. It's simple, pretty, and absolutely anyone can recreate it as long as their hair is long enough to braid and curl. So, why not give it a try?

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with dry or damp hair, spray L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray evenly throughout.

Step 2
Take a medium-sized piece of hair and twist it, then blow-dry the twist while you hold onto the ends. This will set the hair into a loose, natural-looking wave. Repeat this process until all of your hair has been dried. When you're done, you can use a curling iron to add more waves if you feel you need them.

Step 3
Part your hair straight down the middle. To be as accurate as possible, use a tail comb to trace out the line, then comb the hair through on either side to fix it.

Step 4
Braid a piece of hair on each side of your part, starting as close to the part as you can, then secure at the ends with small elastics.

Step 5
Pin the braids together at the back of your head, then complete the look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.
