The Hottest Hairstyles for Winter -- Minus the Usual Styling Damage
Straight hair, curls, waves -- all cute, all requiring major work with hot tools. But you don't have to sacrifice your hair's health to wear the latest trends. We'll show you how
BraidsDanilo says to think of braids as the new hair accessories. You can do a braided headband, a thick French braid around your hairline, a braided ponytail, or a thin braid hanging with long hair. "We saw the first generation of braids with Jennifer Aniston and Lauren Conrad, but you'll start to see braided details as accents on all different types of hairstyles." The key is to make them look sleek and healthy, so use a deep-conditioning treatment once a week, like Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair 60-Second Therapy Ampoules, $12.99.
For a side fishtail braid, tie your hair into a low, side ponytail with a thin elastic or rubber band. Split your hair into two sections, then take a small section of hair from the outside of the left half and bring it over to add to the right half. Do the same thing on the other side, and repeat until you're done. Finally, tie the ends with an elastic, then cut the first elastic at the top.
