Summer Hair Braid Trends - StumbleUpon Braids, pleats, or plaits—whatever you call them, we're absolutely loving all things twisted in hair this season. Beautylish brings you the three hottest braid trends this season and three easy braid DIY tutorials to replicate the look yourself. Who needs a headband when you can make one from your hair! It's easy to give your braids a little extra something with ribbons, flowers, bows, and any other accessories you can think of. The fishtail braid (or Herringbone braid) became a popular trend among celebrities and fashion mavens this year, and we too adore the sea-inspired style.

CROWN OF BRAIDS photos + post design Kristin Ess It seems pretty easy, but it’s not. Not everyone has long hair that reaches all the way around the head to make a perfect crown of braids. Girls with short hair need braids TOO! Start with straight, wavy or curly hair. A veil of hairspray isn’t necessary but will help keep things in place if your hair tends to slip.

Like sunshine, blue skies and THE OCEAN…if you have access to it, that is. Which I don’t. And I know it’s only January but I’m already Jonesing for spring. So, to scratch the itch, I decided to go with beach hair. Problem was I needed sea spray to get the really beachy look and texture. So with much hesitation and skepticism I took on the task of making my own, with stuff I already had around the house. BELIEVE me when I tell you, this is BY FAR the best sea spray I have ever used, EVER. RECIPE: 1 Cup WARM water 3 Tablespoons Sea Salt 1 Tablespoon Gel or Spray Gel 1/2 Tablespoon Conditioner (or leave-in) A couple spritzes of your favorite perfume DIRECTIONS: Mix Warm water and salt first and shake well.

A DO. FOR YOU. Simple Horsetail photo: angela+ithyle/ post designed by kristin ess Some days you just don’t wanna. For those days, we made you this! Seems like we’ve been seeing pictures of this lovely look everywhere. It’s definitely an easy, gorgeous spring/summer ‘do. Here’s how to get this very uncomplicated knotted ponytail: -light holding styling mousse -comb -small clear elastic -large bobbypin 1) Apply a light holding styling mousse all over from roots to ends for texture and seperation. 2) Separate the hair over your shoulder into two pieces. 3,4) Using your girl scout skills, tie hair into a simple knot. 5.) 6) I like to throw a bobby pin in there for extra security. 7) Back comb the ponytail a little for texture and then comb through it with your fingers to settle it. Tip: Once the steps are complete, tug on it and mess it up a bit. xxkristin Tags: blonde, easy, fast, hair, how to, knot, kristin ess, lauren conrad, not your average pony, pony, pony tail, ponytail, pretty, quick, tutorial
