Making a mess is easy but making a pretty mess is something of an art form... especially when it comes to your hair. Side braids are a good place to start because there's plenty of room to play around with volume and texture on top combined with a pretty braid to round out the look.
It's a style that works perfectly for a day spent out and about in the sun, but can also be dressed up for a night out, too. To recreate this marvelously mussed 'do on your own locks, just follow the tutorial below...
Starting with clean, damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout. Rough-dry the hair on a medium heat setting then, when it's about 80% dry, flip your head upside down before you finish the rest. This will lift the hair at the root, helping to build volume from the get-go.
Spray the roots on the top of your head with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray then tease the hair gently with a fine-tooth comb. Be careful not to pull or rip the hair as you back-comb, instead work in small sections and take your time.
Once you're satisfied with the amount of volume on top, use your hands to sweep the hair over to one side then braid it all the way down. A fishtail technique looks great but if time is of the essence, go for a regular three-strand braid.
After making any final adjustments with your hands, fix your new side braid with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
What do you think? Could this be your new go-to summer style?
