Model and L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Natasha Poly was seen at Paris Fashion Week recently with the perfect summer hairstyle: a textured, beachy braid! It's the perfect 'do for lazy summer days, and it works wonders on wet hair, whether you're late to work or hanging out at a pool party.
To recreate her hairstyle, all you need to do is follow the tutorial below!
How to style it
For added texture, it's best to create this style with second day hair. Prep your tresses with a texturizing spray like Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Tousle Waves Spray to protect your hair from heat damage, and to master that beachy texture.
Use your fingers to rake all of your hair back off your face, and gently backcomb the hair at the crown to add some extra height. You don't need to do much backcombing, just enough to lift the hair and keep the overall look light and airy.
Starting from the middle of the back of your head, begin a 3-strand French braid. Work your way down, gradually adding pieces of hair each time you move a section of hair into the middle, then secure with a hair tie.
Use your fingers to gently pull a couple of pieces loose around your faceand neck, and to loosen the braid as desired.
Complete the look with a strong hold hairspray like Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long lasting hold, and to keep flyaways at bay.
