French plait/braid go to hair

As I have mentioned in previous blog posts, it is exam time for me at university at the moment, (in fact I had an exam this morning) and that means I really can't be bothered to make that much of an effort, but I still like to look at least somewhat presentable (it's been inbuilt into me from a young age that you should always look reasonably smart when leaving the house).

So I have a few go to hairstyles that are  quick easy and yet still look nice! My first go to hairstyle is to french plait the front parts of my hair back and down, i sometimes join them together at the back of my head, or just plait them down separately! I love this hairstyle as it is great if your hair a a bit frizzy and messy, if its a little bit greasy or if you have a fringe to get it out of your face!

Front view, pardon the lack of makeup

Side view
 The hairstyle is actually really simple, just gather hair from below the plait and from above the plait, and carry on doing this until you reach just before your ear, then just gather hair from above the plait. After a few cross overs like this, stop gathering hair and just plait down!

This hairstyle is also great it it is really hot and you want to keep your hair off your face. You could even gather your hair into a bun or ponytail at the back, sot hat you have a more interesting up do!
