For my third Make It Yourself Monday, I’m going to show you one of my favorite hairstyles. I’m sure you’re all sensing a pattern here, as this one is extremely simple and straightforward as well, but it’s so cute! I think it’s boho vibe is perfect for summer and it’s great at keeping your hair out of your face. And the best part? It takes less than 10 minutes to do! (Once you get good at it, it’ll take you less than 5 minutes #pro)
1. Start with straight hair and part it in a middle part. Feel free to try this hairstyle out with curly hair but I personally like the style better when my hair is straight.
2. Next, take one inch sections from just above your ears. Leave out the pieces of hair surrounding your face. Braid these one inch sections but instead of crossing the outside pieces over to form the braid, cross these pieces under. (It is just a backwards braid.) Secure the ends with an elastic.
3. Doing one at a time, lay the braid overtop of your head and bobby pin it just above your ear on the other side.
4. Next, take the front pieces of your hair and bobby pin them back. These pieces of hair are especially helpful in covering any bumps n’ lumps in your braids.
And voila! All done. Finish with a smoothing cream or hairspray and you’re all ready to go!
