August: Long, Embellished braids

“Long hair, don’t care” is the motto for August. Get into it just before the seasonal changes. And don't forget to add some glam embellishments, like metal rings or a bejeweled headband.

Never could quite master the cat eye? Then go all in on graphic lines. For Halloween, make them as scary—err, fun—as you wish.
