So you love 2 side braids but you're a grown up and you have long hair. Here's a grown up way to rock this protective...first part your halo....split the part, braid it down on both sides and let it hang. Next part hair down the center. And braid 2 ponytails....this will make very thick braids depending on how long your hair is....pull each braid around the back and to the front of the head like a halo....just above the halo braids and pin down at the part. Repeat for the other one. Blend the tips of the braids inward or cover with a decorative barrette or headband. There you have it...side braids with a grown up flair that's suitable for work or an evening out.
