Happy Friday! If you’re like me then you’re OBSESSED with the book series The Hunger Games. I think they need to come up with a new name for us. Potter fans have “Potterheads” and Twilight fans have “Twihards”. Anyway…I digress.
Braids are the hottest hair trend right now, and with the upcoming film release, Katniss Everdeen’s messy side braid is an absolute must have. Here’s an easy, short-cut, way to get her look in under 5 minutes! Continue reading →
As you may or may not have realized by now, I am obsessed with braids – and who can blame me, they are not only fun to create and so versatile, but they are all the rage right now.
So, I came across a picture of someone with this elaborate braid incorporated into a ponytail – braided down the side of her head – and it had FIVE count ‘em FIVE strands.
I was in awe. Have you ever seen something this cool? It reminds me of those friendship bracelets me and my friends used to make each other when we were little! Definitely unique.
I have tried it out, and it does take a little practice to master.
You start your braid wherever you want it in typical braid fashion – with three pieces. Then, you draw in to extra pieces from each side, winding them into your braid. Next, you continue to add in pieces, winding them back and forth down the braid as you add into it. The step-by-step is complicated, so instead of trying to get this by reading, check out this video how to:
Nicole Richie recently rocked headlines with a super cute braided look at the Ella Moss 10 Year Anniversary Celebration. It was the perfect combination of young and playful, and even better still, it is definitely poof-proof – and if you’re wondering how to do it – I’m here to show you!
This braid is super easy to do – it’s a combination of two french braids brought together into one fishtail braid.
Part your hair. Nicole has hers parted pretty near to dead center, but I encourage a side part if that’s what you like.
Separate your hair down your part evenly on both sides. If you chose a side part, angle the separation down the back of your head so you have semi-even braids on each side.
French braid down each side of your head. To shake things up, experiment with where the braids start. Starting the braids lower down will allow for a more laid back look.
At the base of your skull, bring all you hair together and to the side. Fishtail braid down to the ends. Secure, and you’re done!
