To begin with, we have the incredibly flirty, sexy looks that can be achieved by braiding those long locks in a variety of interesting ways, or creating buns of varying shapes and sizes. Braiding can be used in array of different techniques and styles, creating anything from quite severe to flowing, almost straggly looks.

Buns
Buns can be created to provide a comfortable style for work, or to make a huge statement. Again, the choice is between strict, professional appearances and youthful, playful creations incorporating hair accessories, or simply only using part of the tresses to create the bun, while the rest is allowed to flow free, or peek out from the center of the bun.

From fairly tight curls to a slight wavy look, the choice again, depends on just how much of a statement the wearer wants to make with her style and here, too, sweeping those curls to one side seems to be all the rage.
