Side Braids and Bun

The two-strand braid works with your hair’s natural texture, creating a frame around the face, says Potempa. Plus, it can quickly turn a bad hair day into boho chicness. First, apply Aussie’s Mousse + Leave-In Conditioner and loosely blow dry. Start with a 1-inch section of hair near your desired part and separate it into two pieces. Take the front section and criss-cross it underneath the back section. Add hair to the front section as you go down. Take two bobby pins and criss-cross them to secure behind your ear. Repeat on the other side. Wrap the remaining hair into a low bun and secure with bobby pins a la Jessica Alba.
