#14: Wavy Bob with Two Side Braids

A single braid that frames one side of your face is a cute, easy hairstyle that was popular in the ‘90s and ‘00s. For more flair, add a fishtail braid in there! A fishtail is done by sectioning hair into two and alternating smaller sub pieces by weaving them under each other. To make the braid look more undone, fan out its pieces with your fingers.
