When I was a little girl, I wore my hair in long, red pigtails or braids. The little boys had a field day tugging on them!  Since I wore them only as a child, for a long while, I assumed braids were only for young girls.  But now, braids have made a big comeback, and there are braided styles that are on trend for all ages.  Get ready to braid your own hair, or use extensions or clip ons, because braids are everywhere for Fall Here’s an easy and sophisticated “how-to” that flatters just about everyone,  using products from AVEDA! .  

    Step 1:  Blowdry hair straight.Prep hair with Aveda Pure Abundance™ Style Prep™ to give hair some texture and grit.

 

STEP 2. Create a clean center part from forehead to nape using a tail comb.STEP 3. Make an inverted fishtail braid on each side of the head, beginning at the crown and working to the back of the ear. Secure the end of each braid with an elastic band.

 

STEP 4. Tame flyaways with Aveda Air Control™ Hair Spray.


STEP 5.
 Add some fullness by gently massaging braids.STEP 6. Fold the braids over one another across the back of the head, just above the nape, in a crisscross fashion. Tuck ends under and secure with bobby pins.
