Waking up to that screeching alarm clock is not the hardest part of your morning.
No, the absolute hardest part is getting yourself to look like you didn’t just wake up 10 minutes ago. The main tattletale of that story is your hair. And girls, we have it worse than guys. But don’t fret! Here’s a gallery of the cutest braided hairdos for girls so that you can find (and master) the cutest hairstyle for those crazy mornings. Click on the pictures to see how-to videos.
Twist BraidThis style does a fantastic job at emphasizing your hair highlights while achieving a subtle, elegant look.
I’d also like to add that getting highlights (or lowlights) in your hair, although it may be costly, is totally worth it. Some people are born with unembellished color and others with natural highlights. Recently ombré and foil highlights have been the way to go, giving the monochromatic, washed out look more energizing depth.
What I want you to take away from this post is that a simple braid with a cute twist can instantly make you look awake and glamorous during your hectic mornings. Also, don’t only limit yourself to these styles; try different techniques and get creative! My next post will be on the amazing beauty benefits of my favorite multipurpose product —coconut oil! So stay tuned to Flying in Vogue!
