Braided hairstyles go back to the beginning of time. They do not require electricity from heat styling tools, nor do they require hair products (unless desired to "smooth out" frizzy braids). Braiding your hair is a nice break from your regular hairstyle, and braids can make you look casual, youthful, or even elegant if incorporated into a nice updo.
It has become popular to incorporate some smaller braids into an updo or chignon. Here is a Hairstyles Teacher favorite:

Braiding Step by Step Directions
Do you love thick, long braids but don't have long, thick hair? Try clip-in hair extensions to create voluminous, shiny, long hair.
Try this bridal hairstyle (pictured below) which incorporates the french braid and spiral curls for a fabulous wedding or prom updo.
Try this Holiday Hair Style. It is a braided chignon that is easy to do and will make you look festive at all the holiday parties.
Use braids to give your hair a break from styling tools and products and to keep your hair up and out of the way for more strenuous events such as exercise or sports. It is especially cute to part your hair down the middle and have two braids in the back on each side of your head.
This looks great under bandanas or hats also.
