A soft and flattering color combine with Monica's thick bangs and braided detail for a unique hairdo that's award show-ready. Longer than some of Monica's past signature 'dos, this style is great for women who don't want a "too fussy" look. Plus, it's perfect for keeping hair up and out of the way without resorting to the typical chignon.
