Shake off all the bad of 2015, remember all the good and get ready to kill it in 2016. I don’t know about you but a good hairstyle can really give me the confidence to conquer just about anything. My favorites always seem to include braids. There are a MILLION ways to wear braids in your hair. And unless you have a pixie cut, don’t tell me, “my hair’s too short for that,” because it may not look exactly like it does on long hair, but who cares, you want to look different anyhow. Just use the tutorials as a guide and feel free to put your own spin on it.

If these bigger braids are too tricky for you, a quick way to add a neat detail to a simple style is to braid a few tiny pieces throughout your hair. Its got an effortless feel to it that people will love.

And most importantly, these styles take practice, so don’t give up after the first try! Okay, now let’s go be awesome in 2016!
