A Combover Braid That's Way More Romantic Than It Sounds

So, let's talk bad hair days. Whether it's flat, greasy, fuzzy, or just plan wack, the best way to avoid a morning meltdown is to have some fun go-to hairstyles in your arsenal. We've all done topknots and ponytails (and we feel like even our baristas are feeling the boredom), so we asked beauty maven Bethany Brill to school us on a totally new, unique way to oomph up our lank locks.

Ask and you shall receive: B.Brill decided to show us her newest go-to 'do, a combover braid that lets you wear your hair down (with a little extra style, of course). We love how the new look turned out, and best of all, it doesn't require any fancy twisting shenanigans — a plus when we've barely had our first cup of coffee. Only skills required: a very basic French braid (YouTube it if you need a refresher). Check us out as we DIY the look!
