A braid is a my “staple” style in any season, though I do change it around a bit with the changing seasons. While it’s fun to have a messy braid (what with all that ‘wind’ blowing through my hair) in the summer, it feels more appropriate to be a little bit more put together during the fall season. That means taming the frizz and flyaways to create a sleek and elegant braid that’s great for both day and night. p.s. This look is from Valentino Fall-Winter/2013-14. Cheers!
- Smooth you hair with a hair lotion or oil to control the frizz.
- Use a fine-tip comb to make a neat center part and divide hair into three sections. Then, create a classic, single-plait braid.
- Place a headband (preferable a wide headband) 2-3 inches from your hairline. The headband should cover your ears ever so slightly.
- To tame any and all flyaways, use a bit of hair lotion or place skinny bobby pins in that very spot. Bring your braid over to the side you would normally wear it.
