BEAUTY BAR: Braids For Days

BEAUTY BAR: Braids For Days

Kim Kardashian West, my spirit animal, has been slaying the hair game for the past year. First it was platinum blonde, then it was short and now it’s French braids. Your double braids from grade school have turned into an opportunity to be rad. Let’s not forget the Instagram photo when we all praised Kim and North for rocking braids to their annual Christmas party. Rocking an all black outfit and perfectly braided hair is Kim’s new go-to look, and this Fashionista brought it to the streets of Charleston.

A good hairstyle is almost as important as the shape of your eyebrows; it’s is an accessory and it can change your entire outfit. This Fashionista used her amazing red hair to make the all-black outfit have a pop of color. Down south it’s usually 100 percent humid all the time, and your hair will turn into a wild beast if you don’t tame it. The perfect way to do that is by securing your hair in double French braids. It’s nicely contained, and when you’re done of wearing them, your hair will have a natural-looking wave to it. This Fashionista also matched her red/brown matte lip to create and even bolder color pallet.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To complete this look, you’ll need a hair brush, a hair straightener and if you struggle with braiding, YouTube. I recommend straightening your hair with a heat buffer, so you can get all the length to make your braids even longer and finishing it off with a strong hairspray to hold it all together. Try pairing it with a bold lipstick that accompanies your color scheme. When you have accomplished this, go slay like Kim K.
