Halo Braid This lovely braid requires longer hair but may be able to work with medium hair (just not as long/thick). You french braid your hair around your head starting from the back and tuck the end in. Check out wedding chicks for further instruction.
The Beauty Department -- Double Rope Braid Bun. Pull hair into 2 ponytails side by side, section each into two and rope braid. Twist right rope braid counter-clockwise and in, then do the same with the left rope braid. Finish with hairspray.
