Cute braids for grown-ups!

We've talked about pigtails at before, but we just keep stumbling upon new and surprisingly grown-up ways to wear them! We just love this take on the look with it's messy braids and textured volume on top.

How to style it

Step 1
Spray the roots on the top of your head with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, then tease with a fine-tooth comb to build volume. If your hair is naturally quite thick, you may find that massaging the roots with your fingers will get the job done a ittle faster.

Step 2
Split your hair into two halves. They don't have to be perfectly even, just close enough.

Step 3
Braid the lengths of each half with a regular three strand technique. To make the braids look as twisty and uneven as they do on the model, make sure one strand of the braid is significantly smaller than the other two. Secure your braids at the ends, then use your hands to muss and loosen them as desired.

Step 4
Complete the look with a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to keep frizz and unwanted flyways at bay throughout the day. That's it!
