1. False braided hairstyle tutorial
In this video, Lilith walks us through a step by step tutorial on how to create an easy half up half down hairdo by transforming it into a fake french braid. The look is boho chic and requires your hair to be of medium length at least for optimal results. What we specifically love about her tutorial styles are the variations offered within a hairstyle in case you feel the need to switch it all up and look different. You can style this do with your favourite pair of chandbaali earrings, a gorgeous pink lip and some glitter eye makeup.

This tutorial has a retro glam take on braids for those of you who love your hair with a little bouffant and volume. Remember, unwashed and day old hair is always key when it comes to trying out these styles. Watch on as Lilith walks you through this trendy hairdo that is a combination of lace waterfall braid that frames your face shape and looks extremely flattering when completed. If you’re in a hurry, you could skip teasing your hair for the bouffant, but we do recommend it for the drama factor! Wear this look with delicate earrings and some bronzed out eye makeup.
