Simply part your hair at the center and divide it into two equal sections. Create a basic three-strand braid on each side, and that’s it! Easy, right? This ‘do also doesn’t get messed up easily so no need for you to restyle in the middle of the day.

Editor’s tip: Make hair soft and easy to style by washing it with Sunsilk Smooth and Manageable Shampoo. With the five flower essences, your hair will even smell fresh all day long! 

2. Looped Side Braids

Now that you know how to make two side braids, you can easily make this one. After securing the ends of your braids with an elastic, pin them to the base to create a loop. You can use two or more bobby pins to keep your hair in place.

Editor’s tip: Keep your braids free from frizz by spritzing them with TRESemmé Salon Finish Extra Hold Hairspray before creating the loops. 

3. Boxer Braid

Headed to the gym? Or doing planks and curl-ups right at your own home? Put your hair in a boxer braid to keep hair off your face while working out. Your braids should be close to your scalp. If you have dandruff, it will easily show in this hairstyle, so make sure you combat these nasty white flakes with an anti-dandruff shampoo.

Editor’s tip: Minimize dandruff while nourishing and hydrating your scalp by washing your hair with Clear Complete Soft Care Anti-Dandruff Shampoo.

4. Loose Side Braids

If regular twin plaits look too nene for you, the solution is easy: loosen them up. Doing so adds a grown-up appeal to your braids. Putting your hair in a loose hairstyle once in a while is also good to prevent breakage. You can wear loose side braids on weekends when you just want to chill at home watching your favorite TV series or listening to music.

Editor’s tip: Use TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Shampoo and TRESemmé Total Salon Repair Conditioner to help restore your hair’s natural protective barrier, which will help prevent damage due to frequent styling. 

5. Bohemian Braids

Add a boho-chic flavor to your look by finishing your ‘do with a headband. This hairstyle is perfect for the beach as you lounge around and sip coconut juice. You can also go for this ‘do if you want to spice up your everyday look, whether you’re going out or not.

Editor’s tip: Do you have super straight and sleek hair? Spritz TONI&GUY Sea Salt Texturising Spray before you braid to give your hair grip. This will help make your hairstyle last longer. 

6. Twin Fishtail Braid
