French braids have always been the much cooler and more elegant older sister of the basic braid (you know, the ones you wore in pigtails with Sesame Street ties when you were a kid). Which is why we love the way they add a whimsical touch to any hairstyle that incorporates them.
Just take this Bohemian French braid hairdo, for instance. Rather than put your hair into an updo, which would look far too severe for spring and summer, you'll learn how to create a style that lets most of your hair down and loose, pinning the upward section up with a beautiful French braid. Check the video out for the how-to.
