Since we have reached the end of our short hairstyle list, we would like to leave you with an epic hairstyle which can save you both time and effort. It’s cute and flirty; it’s also elegant in its own way and looks picture-perfect when you do it. It has immense resemblance with hairband hairdo that has braided strand of hair wrapped along the head. In contrast, the braid in this look has a pompadour touch rather than a subtle and sleek look which the hairband hairdo had. All you have to do is divide your hair in sections and start braiding them diagonally, this one is Dutch braid that has wider loops – that have been further pulled out to give a soft and smooth look.
Once you get a hang of it you will do it no time, but at first it may take some time, especially if you are not in the habit of weaving your hair.
