Double it

Party option: divide your hair into top and bottom sections and tie into two ponytails. Then, whip your locks into a pair of cutesy buns and secure with hairspray.

Two minutes

The secret to this look is keep your braid loose, releasing a few front strands. Quick, off-duty hair doesn't get cuter than this.

Side chick

The best part? This looks way more complicated than it actually is to achieve. Simply make a side parting, then begin to french braid v v loosely. Secure with invisible hair ties to complete.
