Small Braids with Straight Hair
The model has pin straight hair, but that's not necessarily a bad thing! With a small braid pinned on one side (modification: you can also pin braids on both sides), she has classy, flirty, and sweet hair.
The trick is to braid UNDER as opposed to OVER (most people usually braid over). As you can see in the photo, braids that go under look better when pinned against the hair.
Side Ponytail with Braids
After you braid your hair, you can continue to style it into a side ponytail. I personally like putting two braids if the hair is not loose, but you can stick with one braid. Your ponytail should be on the opposite side of your braids.
Taking a small strand of hair from your ponytail, wrap it around the ponytail to hide the elastic. Using a few bobby pins, secure the braids against your hair so that they will stay in place all night.
Wear some dangling or hoop earrings and a one-shoulder or strapless dress. Put on some pumps or peep toe heels. Carry a small clutch. His jaw will drop when he sees you tomorrow night. Happy Valentine's Day!
