Step No. 2: As you work backward with the braid, continue to grab and add sections.

Look No. 3: Clip Your Way to a Faux-Hawk
If you want more texture on the "faux-hawk" side, spritz some volumizing spray all over before you add clips.
Step No. 1: Create a messy part on your favorite side.
Step No. 2: Clip a few pieces of your hair right up to the messy part. Use as many as you like, but we love the look of three.

Look No. 5: Simple Twists With a Twist

Step No. 3: Clip your day-of-the-week pins to the tails of the two twists, along with any accent bobby pins, like stars, perhaps?
