Romantic brides will adore elegant hairstyles like this. The first step for making this is to make loose curls all over your head. Next, create a section in the upper back, then twist it and use the bobby pin to bind it. Twist like that will be the center. Take the locks of hair from both sides, cross them over the center and gently twist and pin them. Then you need to repeat step three and tuck the hair you gathered from the both sides and round the loop you made. Do this several more times, until you have used all the hair you have.

10. Fishtail braid that takes your breath away
Bohemian styles will never go out of fashion. The best thing about this hairstyle is that is so easy to create. Imagine, you don’t even need to know how to make a braid. The first thing to do is to take a piece of the hair from the front, twist it to the back, and secure it together with small rubber band and then flip the hair inwards around itself one time.
