If you're looking for a new and exciting way to approach the braided trend, why not try a braided headband? It's a pretty half-up style that doesn't look too over-styled.
This is a romantic style which is guaranteed to soften any look. It looks best when worn with a centre parting so be sure to give yourself one before creating the braid. Pin the braid halfway back with bobby pins and fasten the ends underneath your hair. Create some texture at the back of your hair with some styling spray and don't be afraid to mess it up with your fingertips. Use some hairspray to set your look. Wear this look for the perfect daytime hair or use to tone down a formal outfit.
