High Fashion Braid #3: Slicked-back braid
If you aren’t too keen on branching out and trying a new braided hairstyle, lucky for you, there’s a braid that’s similar to your go-to that walked the runway this year. This slicked-back braided hairstyle is particularly fashionable and it doesn’t require learning any new braiding techniques.
What you’ll need:
L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Extreme Style Gel
Get the look:
Step #1: Part your hair
Just as with your pigtail braid hairstyle, you want to start by creating a middle part.
Step #2: Make it sleek
Slick back your hair towards the back of your head using a hair gel. This will help you sculpt your style, keep any stray hairs in place throughout the day, and give your mane high shine.
Step #3: Braid away
Keeping your hair at the base of your neck, weave your hair into your braid of choice. You can rock a traditional three-strand braid or something a little different like a fishtail braid.
