5 cute and easy braid hairstyles for school

We’ve got pretty and easy braid hairstyles that would make you slay at school from Monday to Friday!

Because braids have gorgeously evolved into so many different styles and forms, they’re no longer just a kindergarten look that you’re glad to have finally outgrown. Braid hairstyles are everywhere these days: red carpets, runways, music festivals, fashion and beauty editorials, and YouTube tutorials. Once a boring style featured in stereotypical movies worn by uncool kids, braids have become one of the trendiest hairstyles of all time.

The difficulty level varies for different braid hairstyles; and of course, the more intricate they look, the harder and longer they are to create. Since we want you to be able to rock this style in school, we’ve put together cute looks that are easy enough to make so you don’t have to be late for class. We have one for every school day so you can switch your style as often as you’d like!

Monday: Scarf braid

Start the week with a bang and go for something fabulous like this scarf braid hairstyle. You’re probably well-rested over the weekend, so we’re pretty sure you have an energy to spare to create this look. Pick a nice scarf, tie it around the base of your ponytail, then start weaving it into your braids. Once you get to the ends, use what’s left of the scarf to secure your braid.

For something more laid back, try this pretty half-up braided bun style. It’s perfect for a chill day at school and gives just the right touch of feminine vibe. Tie half of your hair into a ponytail, then braid it, securing the end with an elastic. Wrap the braid around itself to create a bun.

Editor’s tip: Before you put half of your hair up in a bun, apply a few drops of TONI&GUY High Shine Serum Drops throughout your mane. This will add the gloss and shine that you need and prevent  frizz and fly-aways from popping up.

Editor’s tip: If your locks are fine, making your braids look anorexic, dust your hair with TONI&GUY Sky High Volume Dry Shampoo before braiding. Then once your braids are all set, pull apart sections of the braids to make it look thicker.
