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.

I was looking at Van Gogh's Starry Night online because it has an amazing range of colors and wanted to do a look inspired by it!

Either way, I love this look because I went out of my comfort zone and tried a different technique of shadow. The look: Let's begin! To start off, take a white eyeshadow base (NYX Milk) And apply all over the lid And blend out with your ring finger Now, take a black eyeliner and draw out a semi circle (it doesn't have to be perfect) Now take a dark matte teal color (Mac Plumage) And apply with a small concealer brush, packing on the color little by litlle above the semi circle To look like Take a blending brush and blend out the dark teal (using Sigma blending brush) Take a white matte shadow (Mac Chamomile) And apply as a highlight under the brow using a flat shader brush (Mac 239) And apply the gold on the inner corner

Pin-It-Up Hair Style Our email box is literally flooded with requests for updos so here’s a fun one to get us all going! This is always a favorite for attending an event. This updo looks gorgeous on any hair color but particularly amazing with hilighted hair because it gives the hair lots of depth and dimension. For lack of a better word, I love the way it becomes “swirly”. Best thing is; it’s easy to do, gorgeous and keeps your hair out of your way for the night. I made this a printable tutorial, so all of the steps are next to the photos. Tools you’ll need: curling iron (to prep the hair with waves), sectioning clips, teasing comb or brush, clear elastic rubber band, bobby pins, light to medium holding hairspray (to mist over at the end).
