7. BRAID AND BUN
A French braid updates the classic bun. Get this look by parting your hair in the middle or on the side and taking big sections of hair to weave into a French braid. "The chunky sections of hair is what gives it that hefty thick braided look," says Garrison, who suggests using a sun treatment for this look like Kerastase UV Defense Active, $36. "There are six sections of hair that were braided and you work in three pieces of hair as you're braiding."
At the end of the braid, gather with elastic, create a ponytail and then secure into a low bun.
