It’s always nice to be able to rely on an old favorite, even though this style has the word messy in it doesn’t mean there isn’t an art to it.

If you’re feeling edgy, this style is for you. It’s also perfect if you’re in the process of growing out your hair and want to rock a short style while you can. And don’t worry, whether your hair is naturally straight or wavy or curly, you can still rock this style.

This style is perfect for our natural girls who may not have a lot of time to style their hair. If you’re looking to mimic this style, but with straight hair or wavy hair, the process is still the same, the results will just reflect your hair texture. For more volume, you can tease the hair.

Fishtail braids.

Sometimes going back to basics is exactly what you need to make a statement. For this look, straighten your hair and seal it with hairspray to keep the flyaways at bay. To finish off this look, part it down the middle and to keep it overnight, wrap it. Doing so will keep the hair straight and free from tangles while you sleep.
