Half-Up Fishtail

Fishtail braids are intricate and mesmerizing. Use the top layer of your hair to create a fishtail braid and let the rest hang free.

Messy Bun

Messy buns are an art. Everyone will master their bun in a different way. Add color, an undercut, or a fun braid to the mix, and you’re out the door.

Half-Up Space Buns

Space buns took the beauty scene by storm last year, and they aren’t going anywhere. This style is perfect for any and all music festivals.

Twisted, Textured, Low-Bun

This bun is effortless, yet fancy. Create this style with textured hair for a formal occasion.
