THE SECRET: In a regular braid there are 3 strands. For this look, all you do is braid one of those strands beforehand and loosen it up with your fingers, then braid as usual. This creates extra texture + breaks up the mundane pattern of a regular braid.
Quick Messy Bun / Up-Do. Love this! Tried it with my curly, medium length hair (so I didn't need to do the brushing or teasing parts) and it worked really well! A nice big bun with lots of waves/texture thanks to my curls :)
