As street style braids go, this hairstyle is right on-trend with plenty of windswept volume - it's the kind of look that goes with absolutely everything! The one thing that really makes this hairstyle work is the slightly off-center part. With plenty of volume on either side, it has a soft, universally flattering silhouette.

This hairstyle is particularly versatile because it's just so simple! It can be worn in loads of different ways and the volume can be toned down or ramped up depending on the occasion. You can even add some extra detail with a cute headband or barrette if you want.

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Fine-tooth comb
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Starting with dry hair, define a slightly off-center part and comb the hair through.

Step two: Spray the roots with High Lift Creation Spray then gently tease the lower layers to build plenty of volume. The amount of teasing all depends on how much volume you want and how well your hair maintains the height.

Top tip – Make building all that volume even easier by blow-drying with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse before you start styling.

Step three: Gently smooth over the teased hair with a comb and braid it down one side, then fix the style with a mist of Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold. That's it!
