Bella Thorne is officially the queen of the braid! (Sorry, Lauren Conrad). As expected, we love Bella’s latest sweet side braid and you can get it too in just three easy steps.
All hail Bella Thorne‘s hair! Whether it’s her enviable strawberry blonde shade or her beloved braids, Bella’s mane always looks flawless both on and off the red carpet. On Feb. 17, the star took to Instagram to share her casual take on her go-to hairstyle and we already want to copy it! Check out our breakdown of Bella’s braid.
Bella Thorne’s Side Braid — How To Get It In 3 Easy steps
First and foremost, in order to achieve an effortless “Bella” braid, it’s important to add texture to your hair.
First, prep damp hair with BUMBLE AND BUMBLE Surf Spray, which helps the braid stay in place. Next, create a side part and gather all of your hair to one side a la Bella.
Lastly, make a loose braid on either the left or right side of your head. If pieces naturally fall out while making the braid then let them stay out! After all, Bella’s braid is so pretty and chic because it looks so nonchalant.
Mara Hoffman Fall 2015: Stylish Braids Like Bella Thorne
As we previously reported, the braid was all the rage at Mara Hoffman’s Fall 2015 runway show.
Bella will surely get some inspiration for her red carpet appearances after seeing Mara Hoffman’s models parade in braids down the catwalk. As for our favorite of these haute hairstyles, we loved the ‘Lady Luke Skywalker’.
Lastly, like Bella, we recommend that you treat braids like an accessory and let your hairstyle stand out by keeping your makeup quite minimal.
As seen both on in the runway and in Bella’s low-key selfie, a dewy complexion and rosy cheeks are the best compliment to a braid.
