Keep your hair free from frizz with these simple fall braids good for any style or occasion.
Braids are a great hairstyle for the fall. It can be hard to keep curls in check once the wind sets in, and braiding is a great way to combat frizz while preserving your curls. There’s a braid for every occasion and every personal style. They’re also perfect for everything from intramural sports and second-day hair to date nights and fall weddings.
The following braids tend to be best for type 2 hair, but other curlies can benefit from them as well! Try starting to braid when your hair is still damp for a little more control.
If you’re looking for even more inspiration, look to the likes of Kerry Walsh and Misty Mae, Katniss Everdeen and other leading ladies of the red carpet for ideas!
The French Braid
Is your curly hair layered? The French braid is great for incorporating and organizing all your different hair lengths. And if you have shorter hair, the French braid might work for you! Because you start the braid near the crown of the head, not as much length is needed to complete it.
Gather a small section of your hair near the crown of the head and begin braiding. As you approach the nape of your neck, gradually add more hair to each of the three sections as they cross into the center of the braid.
This sleek, sophisticated braid will keep your hair out of your face all day. For variations on the classic, start with a side part or French braid a small section and leave the rest of your curls loose.
