Part your hair into three sections and braid each one before bringing them together and securing with an elastic for a nice, fairy-tale look. There are many tutorial videos on various online platforms to help you get the idea of how it should look. Take care to add a good spray to your hair for volume and moisture.
This style takes the French braid to a whole new level, with added volume and romantic facial frames. Simply braid your hair in a French braid to the tips and secure with an elastic band. Use a comb to brush out a bit of hair from the crown all the way to the bottom of the braid. Take care not to overdo it as it will only end up looking messy. Some spray should give your hair added volume for the perfect, princess look.
This style is the embodiment of simple and party combined together. Braid your hair into a Dutch braid and secure the tips with an elastic.
