I've rounded up some inspiration for you - there are so many ways to tweak & update this style to your taste!
1. Try pinning the braids farther back on your head with strands pulled out around your face for a more grown-up, sophisticated look like this tutorial from Cupcakes & Cashmere
2. For a more casual, artsy vibe, pin the braids right at the top of your forehead like these from A Cup of Jo
3. I love the way this style is completely updated with a super-teased half ponytail before braiding from Keiko Lynn
4. If my hair was 10x thicker than it really is, I'd totally go for this multi-braid style from A Beautiful Mess
