How to Fashion a Chunky Braid With Long Bangs

Chunky Braid Hairstyles
Sayonara micro braids. Long, chunky braids are having their moment and the effect is all-out boho sophisticate, not like the Hansel and Gretel-inspired little girl braids of your youth. For a decidedly grown up look, wear one thick braid pulled to one side so that it dangles over one shoulder, with bangs smoothed over and swept to the opposite side for balance. Or pull it over the top of your head for a halo effect. Try on chunky braids in our virtual makeover studio.

Your chunky braid should start at your ear and continue to your ends. For a slightly messy look, pull a few tendrils out around your face and ears and curl them with an iron if your hair is pin-straight. Fasten the ends of the braid with a piece of leather string or any material with an organic texture. Or simply wrap a few pieces of your own hair around the ends to secure it.

If you prefer a more untraditional look, try pulling one chunky braid taught across the top of your head in lieu of a headband and securing it with bobby pins. Sun-kissed highlights will add radiance to a thick braid like Jessica Alba's . Try on highlights and long, side swept bangs in our virtual makeover studio. --Stephanie Simons

^the look is more natural and innocent, so stay away from styling products that will make your hair look stiff and rigid. This comment has been removed.
