Letting your locks down during a formal event is not a taboo. However, would it not be nice to add a few adornments to your locks, especially if it is a grand event? If you want to show off your luscious locks without looking too plain, this braided design would be a great way to still look elegant with your locks down. Just braid a few sections of your locks, while making sure you leave your bangs unbraided. Then secure the braided locks at the ends with an elastic band or even an embellished hair tie. Add a nice side swept bangs, and your formal yet laid-back look is done!
This comb back into the very popular ponytail has little braids throughout to add texture and volume to the hair.
