3. HALF-UP TWISTED FISHTAIL BRAID
For a braided look that effortlessly ups the ante, a twisted fishtail braid will suit your needs. Learn how to create the look with our step-by-step tutorial below.
STEP #1: ADD SOME VOLUME
Give your mane a nice lift with the help of the L’Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Spray onto your roots to give them a fuller look.
STEP #2: PART YOUR HAIR
Using a rattail comb, split your hair into two even sections, then focus on the top layer of hair. Divide the top layer evenly with a vertical part.
STEP #3: TWIST YOUR HAIR
Holding the two sections of hair you created with your top layer, twist them both back until the twists reach behind your head—you don’t need to twist the hair all the way down. Secure the twists with a small hair elastic at the back of your head.
STEP #4: CREATE YOUR FISHTAIL BRAID
Working with the hair beneath your elastic, begin to fishtail braid your strands. Once you reach your ends, secure with another hair elastic.
Editor’s tip: For an extra professional-looking plait, you can carefully use scissors to snip away the elastic at the top of your braid.
STEP #5: SPICE UP YOUR BRAID
Pancaking your twisted fishtail can take it to the next level. Gently tug at your braid to help loosen your strands a bit and give them a more lived-in feel. Voila!
4. SIDE DUTCH BRAID
In the mood to add a little pizazz to your mane? A side Dutch braid will suit your fancy. Perfect for family Easter festivities, this style exudes sophistication along with a classic appeal.

Mist a high-shine hairspray like the L’Oréal Paris Elnett Precious Oil Satin Hairspray evenly over your mane, and you’re ready for dyeing eggs and snacking on jelly beans.
Speaking of classic styles, you can never go wrong with styling your mane into a stunning chignon.
