This FKA Twigs-Approved Braid is Perfect for Short Hair
If you’re a braid aficionado with short hair, finding fresh hairspo can be seriously tough. We’ve got your back—see this curated list of 8 braids that look amazing on short strands—but apparently, so does FKA Twigs. The singer brought another option to the table when she debuted this upside-down-braid-meets-pompadour at the GO Campaign Gala 2015.
FKA Twigs isn’t exactly known for her “safe” sense of style (girl knows how to work everything from ‘90s lipstick to face stencils), but this style is pared-back and elegant. To get a similar look, prep hair with Moroccanoil's Hydrating Styling Cream ($48), then flip your head upside down and, starting from the nape of your neck, create a French braid. Keep going until you run out of hair, twist the braid around itself into a pompadour shape and pin in place.
