BEAUTY BAR: Braidspiration

From all over fashion week to Beyoncé’s iconic “Lemonade” hair looks, braids are truly having a moment right now! It is honestly impossible to scroll through Instagram without a braided look popping up on my feed and I’m living for all of this “braidspiration!” It is the major beauty trend of spring 2016 and here to stay for the summertime.

These edgy pigtails have become a go-to for Fashionistas to rock because they are functional, effortless and are a cool, textured addition to the ensemble. With summer quickly approaching, this trend is amazing for festivals, pool sessions and brunch with gal pals. It is the perfect beauty trend for these warm months and an excuse for me to be sporting them all summer long! The trend, however, does need to be styled properly, in order to avoid Million Dollar Baby vibes (unless you’re into that sort of thing).

I saw this Fashionista killing the braided look while also having some fun with her style! I am loving how she paired her off the shoulder top, which is huge for spring and summer, with her trendy, denim skirt and groovy neck scarf. The fresh outfit and addition of RAD accessories like her fab sunglasses, really complement her braided ‘do. Some may think braids need to be paired with a very simple outfit because of the detailed hair. However, I am glad this Fashionista proved this theory wrong. Don’t be afraid to accessorize with the braids because they both add lots of edge to your summer and spring frocks!

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: Another reason why this beauty trend is so amazing is because you do not need many supplies. Grab two hair ties, weave your hair into your favorite braid and start serving some braided beauty looks!
