Braids, Braids and more Braids!Wednesday, April 13 2016
We are taking you through some of our favourite braided styles for the gym, a night out or even Sunday brunch! Many of us haven’t braided our hair since we were kids, but classic braids are making a comeback! We think braids are a great style to master, not only are they easy, stylish and fun but they work even better on dirty hair…so you can save them for that day you just couldn’t be bothered!
Dutch Braids or Boxer Braids have been trending on social media over the last few months because of celbes such as the Kardashions. Dutch Braids are easy to master and can take you from a lunch date to the gym or even a night out.
GET THE LOOK:
- Create a textured foundation by spraying a dry shampoo from roots to ends, we recommend Davines Hair Refresher.
- From a middle part, create two sections starting at the hairline ending at the nape.
- Clip one section to the side for control.
- French braid close to the scalp until you reach the nape.
- Once you reach the nape, continue with a free hanging braid.
- Secure with elastic.
- Repeat on the other side.
- Finish by pulling braids to loosen and give an effortless appearance.
From the runway at NYFW to the streets of Canberra we love this romantic effortless look. These braids are perfect for a night out on the town with the girls or even a dinner date.
GET THE LOOK:
- Blow-dry damp hair with Original Mineral Atonic spray.
- Create loose curls heading away from the face with a GHD or curling wand.
- Create an uneven deep side part and begin plaiting and twisting from the forehead to the nape of the neck. (this is meant to look a little messy so just go for it)
- Secure the twisted plait with a small elastic and bobby pins, allowing small strands to fall out.
- Shake hair over the shoulders to cover up the end of the braid.
- Spray entire head, with special attention to the side curls, using Original Mineral Original Queenie hairspray.
When your regular top knot is feeling stale, add some flair with a braided bun!
GET THE LOOK:
- Create a triangular shaped section from each temple to the crown of the head then clip away.
- Flip head upside down and brush all hair forward. Starting at the nape of the neck, create a Dutch French braid, by adding hair underneath each section instead of over, braiding up the head.
- Use your fingers to pull apart the sides of the braid and create random texture.
- Twist and loop the remaining hair and any left over braid to create a topknot, then secure with pins.
- For a firmer hold spray hair with Original Mineral Original Queenie hairspray.
