The ever-popular halo braid is a go to hairstyle that women are continually turning to. This braid is like the crown braid but uses only one Dutch braid instead of two.

Some women steer clear of braided styles due to their appearance of difficulty. However, while there are some more intricate braids out there, there are several easy braided hairstyles you can try, as well. With some simple braiding techniques and hair pins, it is amazing what you can achieve when styling hair.
Two French Braids To DIY

I have always wondered how do you do two French braids on yourself? We will attempt to give a step by step tutorial on how to do so. First, you begin with parting the hair straight down the center all the way from back to front. You can add additional flair to your style by doing a zig-zag part or a bohemian style part. Begin with doing a foundation braid by taking a 2-inch segment of hair and do a standard braid as you proceed to keep the braid close to the scalp. And pick up segments of hair from each side to add to your strands as you proceed to the nape of the neck and continue braiding to the end of the hair. There are also multiple videos on YouTube on how to do French braids if you are more of a visual learner. In order to create the two-sided French braids, you follow the same process but combine the braids at the end.
