3. Faux Fish Tail Braid (short hair)

Full Goddess Twist Updo (short or long hair)
A natural can never fail with going for a goddess twist style. The look is not only simple and quick to create but great for moisture retention. Because the hair is twisted and pinned, it does not get dry as quickly and easily as more exposed tresses.
