Everyone loves a daring girl with boho-chic girl with bold hairstyle. Well make that girl you! This trend has been all over the Red Carpet and Pinterest. Now it's your turn to complete this look on your own! Perfect with any hair part, hair texture, and whether or not you have bangs, this is a trend almost any girl can join (or begin in your school)! P.S. Special announcement at the end.
Let us begin!
Begin by brushing through your hair. Make sure it is completely untangled.
Spray salt spray or hair spray from about your ear to the bottom of your hair strands.
Almost done spraying! Be sure you don't get your hair completely soaked...just dampened.
Brush again to prevent the spray you used from tangling your hair or making it stick together. Part hair how you please (because we're going to be making pigtails next), but you don't have to. My hair is always parted at the right ride of my head and I'm leaving it like that for this tutorial.
As you can see, my dog has joined us. He's so precious! Anyways, take one half of your parted hair and tightly pull it down so we can make this braid as tight as possible.
Alrighty, now get to braiding REALLY tightly. Begin the braid by the ear, where you sprayed whichever spray you chose.
Once you're done with that braid, secure the bottom with an elastic. It's okay if you leave an inch or so of hair under the elastic. I have layers, so it gets tricky to keep braiding. Also, if you'll notice, on the side that's been braided, I have hair poking out above my ear. Fear not! That's normal! Just proceed...
Repeat the previous two steps for the other side of your part.
This step is optional for those who have bangs (and even those who don't!) I'm pinning my bangs to the side after twisting it. If you don't have bangs but want this twisted style, twist and pin a front section of hair before you tightly braid. If you want to use heat and style bangs (if you have them) then do it after you have the pig tail braids finished OR before you even begin braiding.
This might be what you have so far...minus the weird facial expression, probably.
Remember the loose flaps at the ear where your braid begins? You're going to hold that down while completing the next step...
...which is (after holding down the flap with your finger) wrap the braid on that side over the head (naturally pushing that flap down).
Pin it into place, preferably above the elastic (so the small amount of hair under elastic doesn't slip out of the pin). You can use multiple pins until you KNOW it won't budge.
Do the same with the other side, pushing that flap down/compressed to your head. Be sure the braid covers the other braid's elastic and bobby pin(s). Tuck the braid you just braided's elastic and pin under the right first braid.
Got these Fatty McFatterson puffed out pieces by your ears too? Pin them down and back, along with pinning all over the top to support the braids.
Feel free to finish it off with hair spray or salt spray. Aaaaaand you're done!
Thank you guys so much for reading. I'm really excited this coming month because I have so many hair tutorials to present to you all! These hair trends will be perfect for almost every season. AND, they're all made purposely to beat the heat! So as school starts for many, you can gradually use August to prep you for easy, no-heat hairstyles.
