Bad hair days are no match for Nia Long’s totally simple, yet super-chic prairie cornrows. On mornings when your ‘do is frizzy, limp or depressingly multi-textured (ladies growing out your relaxers, you know what we mean), simply part it down the middle and create two cornrows going down each side. Fasten the braids in a low bun (if your hair is short, create two low buns behind each ear) secure with bobby pins, and add a vampy red lip to amp up the ooh-la-la. Very chic in a Frida Kahlo meets “The Color Purple’s” Nettie way!
