Inspired by classics from the silver screen, this beautiful braid pays tribute to the elegance and simplicity of the ancient Greeks. You’ll form this hairstyle by French braiding in a ring following your hairline, beginning at your right ear and braiding over your forehead, following your hairline until you run out of hair. Wear this braid in the sunshine—it’s perfect for picnics, the beach, festivals . . . and toga parties!
Ideal hair length
Medium to long
Hair extensions needed?
Yes, but you can do this in your own hair with practice.
This eye-catching braid doesn’t need any additional hair accessories, but focus on other items, such as earrings or a necklace, to complement your hair.
If your hair is very long, you can complete this look by winding the braid into a bun and pinning it at the back of your head. If you have shorter hair, keep the braid nearer your crown and you should be able to go full circle with the hair you have. This should also help the braid stay secure.
