This Braid Was Made For Short-Haired Girls

When it comes to naming our favorite easy-to-execute hairstyles, the braid tops the list. We got the basics down back in middle school, and, not to brag, our game has grown even stronger since. Our skills come courtesy of watching and rewatching tutorials on braids in all forms — whether it's parts or updos, we've seen and learned 'em all.
But, there was one braid variation that no tutorial dared to tackle — a look suitable for shorter hair. We wondered, Was such a thing even possible? Hair pro Michael Dueñas gave us the answer in the form of an across-the-forehead style. Watch above as our assistant beauty editor Gabrielle gets her braid on.
