<p>Black Infinity:&nbsp;Starting with two strands of hair, a third strand is wound around the two to create a figure eight. Working down the hair, the piece that is the &quot;figure eight&quot; needs to be kept taught for the full effect of the structure to take place.</p>

<p>&ldquo;An infinity braid can be styled using all the hair down the back of the head, in small sections for detail like in this look or even just at the base of the head for a different take on a braid that&rsquo;s over the shoulder. Heavier fabrics, like velvet, are great to use during the Fall/Winter months to mimic the colder weather that comes upon us,&rdquo; Villanueva says.&nbsp;</p>

<p>Faux Flower Fall:&nbsp;The dark faux flowers were woven into two loose pigtails to create a soft undone look. The pigtails were secured at the end with a black ribbon to pull the look together. For braid beginners, the pigtails can be done easily with just a three-strand technique. You can add more dimension and texture with different braiding styles depending on your preferences and skill level.</p>

<p>&ldquo;Dark flowers and ribbons are great Fall time accessories to mark the festive October and Halloween occasions. This look is also perfect for an autumn bride or even a wedding party,&quot; Villanueva says.</p>

<p>The Nightmare Before Braid:&nbsp;This look features tulle wrapped around Dutch braids to create contrast and a texture difference. The style starts with two tight Dutch braids down the head, separated with a middle part from the front all the way to the nape. Using a weaving tool is most helpful to get the tulle neatly wound down the braid. Using a plastic tool, like a sewing needle (but much bigger with a blunt point and the other end with a wide opening for fabric to loop through) makes this interesting braid much easier to achieve. Villanueva left the ends out and secured them with a black rubber band.</p>

<p>Mummy Tail:&nbsp;Muslin wrap strips and floral wire were used to create an interesting ponytail that bends and twists into any shape. The hair was braided tightly at the base of the head with floral wire. &quot;I did a regular tight three strand braid. This style takes a plain Jane braid that wouldn&rsquo;t normally be worn as is and dresses it up to be as festive as they come,&rdquo; Villanueva said. The muslin strips were folded in half and looped down the braid so the ends were left hanging.&nbsp;</p>
