Long Bob Braid

We love the wash-and-go appeal of the popular long bob, which is perfect for a low-key rehearsal dinner or post-wedding brunch. But for the actual walk down the aisle, consider breathing new life into your short hairstyle with rumpled curls and a gorgeous five-strand braid. "Wrapping all your hair around a curling iron sets a great foundation for the braid," says MacKenzie. "It helps encourages the soft bends of the braid, especially if you have naturally straight hair."
