…Protective Pretty

Is this the season you’ll shift style gears and try a protective style…like braids? Perhaps inspired by the micro-braid craze from the 90s, this modern mane version flaunts endless lengths arranged into a casual “updo.” Plaits are put up and pinned into a petal-like configuration for all to admire.
