We love Lea Michele’s new braid

15 May

This summer the braid is back, but it’s a fresh new style.

We could spend ages explaining to you how it should look but instead we’ll just show you this picture of Lea Michele because she has it bang on.

It’s slightly messy, slightly unkempt but just as shiny and lush as it needs to be.

We love this look. It’s perky and stylish, works for day through to night and it shows of healthy, thick locks. What more could you want?

Here’s how to recreate this style.

First you want hair to be as luscious and shiny as possible. Keep your natural hair in tip top condition by drinking plenty of water and using the right conditioner to protect your hair.

If you don’t have the long locks required for this style you might need to use a Dream Girl ponytail hair extension. These either clip or fasten over your own hair adding length and volume.

You want to choose a shade that closely matches your own natural hair colour.

Next tie your hair into a high ponytail on the crown. Don’t worry about making it look too sleek. Instead it can be slightly ruffled as this is the style.

If you’re using a ponytail hair extension add it now.

Plait the hair thickly into a braid and fasten at the ends.

Pull slight strands of hair from the plait. The easiest way to do this is to take sections of the braid on either side and pull them slightly apart. This creates a finished style that has that bedhead “undone” look.

And that’s it. It really is that easy. Either wear with a fringe or have your bangs out in front like Lea Michele here. Use some hairspray to finish and just keep flyaway locks in place.
