Popsugar has an amazing video tutorial that covers three HOT braids:

1.  the Fishtail

2.  the Dutch

3.  the 4 strand

The key to using these in 2014 is to think bohemian.  You want a loose, messy braid to pull off that bohemian look.  You can use Bumble & bumble texture to help keep your braid looking cohesive but messy at the same time.


b. adorable!

Step 1. Start by prepping the hair with a root volumizer- I LOVE Bumble and bumble pret a powder.

Work into roots with finger tips to really get good lift!  Bumble-Pret-a-Powder

****if you want added volume, tease hair with a teasing comb to desired height ****

Step 2. Divide hair into 3 sections, secure into pony tails.

Step 3. Curl each ponytail and pin, or for a measured look, twist pieces of ponytail and pin.  Jeweled bobby pins will dress up your look too.

***this is a super easy, cute look to do when you are on the go, or have to go from day to night.***

Throw on a pretty necklace, and a bold lip, you’re ready to party!****
