Long hair does not have to be styled in a formal or sheek manner. When tossled and shaggy is the look your are trying for, the braid will make styling easy and funky.
To achieve a shaggy look with long hair, apply mousse or styling gel to long hair while wet. Separate the long hair into small chunks and braid each chunk tightly. Secure the braids with small hair bands. Continue braiding until all of the hair has been sectioned and secured. Allow hair to dry naturally for a couple of hours or even overnight. After the hair has dried, remove the hair bands and softly unbraid the strands. Tossle the head back and forth and secure the style with a finishing spray.
Shaggy hair does not have to be reserved for short and medium length hair. When only funky will do, braid your hair for style.
