Best Braid Hairstyles, The French braid of your youth is grown up with a carefree technique and escaping strays. Donât worry about pulling it too tight or keeping the ends of your layers tidy. Let shorter hairs poke out of the braid. If everything still looks too put together after youâve finished weaving, tug on each section of braid as though youâre pulling it apart. You can even pull out some tendrils to frame your face. Pair this look with some long earrings for a laid-back style.
