Preppy braids can give a clean-cut blend and a sophisticated look for most of the people who wear it with long hair. It is a classic way of styling your hair which can never look awkward with a clean high ponytail and also with two braids on each side of your head. Most of the people will have layers in the hair which can stick out of the conventional braids and with proper French braids you can make sure that each piece of the hair is tucked in to get a sleek preppy look.
To achieve this hairstyle, first get rid of all the tangles from your hair with a brush. Then spritz all over the hair with water using a plastic spray bottle and comb it through. Next part the hair from middle of the forehead and secure one section using a hair tie. Brush the free side of hair down and then collect three half-inch sections on top of your head, at the crown. Take the left section in between the other two sections and do the same with the right section also. Now take the new section of hair with the left section and pull the right section back towards the left along with the new section. Continue the braiding process till the end of the hair and secure it with a hair tie. At last secure the hair against your head in any direction with a bobby pin.
