Currently the hairstyle which works well are the boxer braids (boxer plaits) You must simply separate your hair in two with a line at the centre of your head and make two plaits stuck to the side of your head.

For fine hair

It is not always easy to style fine hair without accentuating its fragility or lack of volume. In order to avoid doing this wear loose plaits which give the illusion of having more volume in your hair.
