This look is about making random little braids from the part. First, Garrison suggests starting off with some serum or cream to give hair some texture, but don't apply too much otherwise it might end up feeling greasy. "Make a couple braids on each side of the part and a couple in the back," he says. "This is the best look for long hair so the braids can fall. Otherwise they might look stubby."

If you want to add some pizzazz to this look, weave some strips of fabric into the braids, Garrison says.
