    Land of the free, home of the braid
    This Pinterest-inspired style looks totally sophisticated and cool, but it’s super simple and only takes a sec to perfect. It’s just as easy as it sounds. First, separate your hair like you normally would to prep for a braid. Select one of the sections and knot a thin ribbon (one that’s decked out in stars and stripes, of course) around the hair. Then braid all the segments together for a cute pop of patriotism.
