These styles are on the “menu” at DreamDry, an awesome blowout bar, but if you are not in NYC or Chicago, follow these expert tips from Lead Stylist Sonia David!
“For the beach — The Fishtail is messy with volume, your “mermaid” inspired braid. A fishtail braid can be intimidating, so for beginners I suggest sticking to a regular braid with added texture. Start by teasing your roots for volume at your crown. Gently secure hair into a low ponytail with a hair tie. Braid your ponytail all the way to the bottom securing in place with an additional hair tie. Lastly, separate pieces of the braid for an effortless, undone look!”
Beyonce’s Braids For Summer — Summertime Hairstyles: Hair How To
For a look like Beyonce:
“For a tropical getaway — Bianca is the ultimate crown braid, that goes from day to night. Easily achieve this look by separating your hair into two parts. Create a braid on each side and secure them in place with hair ties. Wrap one braid around the front of your crown securing in place with bobby pins. Then, wrap the second braids in the opposite direction securing with bobby pins as well. Finish your look by gently separating pieces of the braid for a relaxed, bohemian chic vibe.”
“For a night out — Juliette is soft and romantic side-swept glamour with a braid. You can create this look with hair that’s straight or wavy, by taking a section of hair at the crown. Create a braid securing it with a hair tie, and wrap it around the side of your head. Keep it in place with bobby pins for a look that’s casual yet stylish.”
