Even if you lean more towards Game of Thrones than Disney, it's hard not to fall for the sheer romance of princess hair. It's just pretty, fact! It's also a look that's really easy to achieve when you have a shortcut or two up your Juliet sleeves.

If you're in possession of long or long-ish hair, a simple half-up braided style will give you all the fairytale magic with virtually no fuss. You can even customize it with floral accessories to really ramp up the Sleeping Beauty vibe, should you so desire. Otherwise, just follow the tutorial below to get the look...

Step one

One of the many advantages of princess hair is that it can be worn straight or wavy. For a straight style, spray your hair evenly with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray then flat iron. For a loosely curled look, spray with Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray and blow-dry in large twisted sections.

Step two

Brush or comb the top layers of hair back from your face then start braiding just below the crown of your head. You can use any braid technique you want from fishtail to rope twists.

Step three

Like the model in the photo, you can braid just a few inches or, if you would prefer, keep going right to the very ends. Either way, secure the braid with a small hair tie.

Step four

Tease a few strands of hair loose at the front to frame your face then give the whole style a generous mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to finish.

Once you've got the style down pat, we suggest you find a suitable gown to wear with it...
