Braids for Days

My loves,

I have always found it fascinating that celebrities can make something as simple as a ponytail look elegant and sophisticated. Braids and ponytails have been trending all over the red carpets lately and I really love the way a simple hairstyle looks with an elegant ball gown. Not that I will be attending any fancy events any time soon, but I thought it would be fun to try out a hairstyle that I can use for my future fancier self, when I’m rich and famous. Now that I think of it if I were rich and famous, I would probably have someone do my hair for me! Well, one can dream. Since cutting my hair short I’ve constantly been looking up hairstyles for short hair. I have come across all sorts of braids and up do’s, but I fell in love with two simple braids with a soft curl that I thought I would give a try. Now, I can do makeup, I can do nails, hair is definitely not my forte, so don’t judge too hard my beauty guru’s.

Now usually the messy look is one of the hardest looks to achieve, but because curl is involved it makes it a little easier. You don’t to make it look perfect when curls are involved, the messier the better!  I split my hair into sections and started curling small pieces of my hair in no particular order. Since my hair is naturally curly, my hair holds curl extremely well, but it’s wise to use hairspray so the curl holds all day or all evening. Once all my hair was curled I took two sections from the front on each side of my head and braided a simple basic, braid and pinned it on each side. It was literally that simple. Easy, simple and very elegant. It’s the perfect hairstyle for everyday, a date, or a fancy evening out.
