Heading on your summer holiday soon? Well we’ve got the perfect go-to guide for the ultimate beach-friendly, holiday hair look – a parting braid.
We know that working out how to wear your tresses for a day of sunbathing by the pool, followed by an evening of cocktails at the bar can be a tricky affair. Our solution – a statement braid that will keep hair off your face (great on a breezy beach,) but also look gorgeous all day and all night!
There are loads to choose from – milkmaid, parting, french. Whatever you choose, don’t worry about being too neat as you plait – a laid-back, loose finish looks best. We recommend spritzing hair with a texturising spray like I.C.O.N. Beachy Spray before plaiting. This will not only help keep your plait in place and ensure a gorgeous gritty texture, it also protects hair from heat damage.
Here is our handy how-to guide to an on-trend parting braid style which can be created with short, mid-length and long hair, with or without Great Lengths hair extensions. This look was inspired by Kate Bosworth hairstyle at Coachella 2015 – we’ve just adapted it slighted to make a bit more of a statement!
