BEAUTY BAR: Messy Hair, Don't Care

October 14th, 2015 at 2:00am

Want to try something new with your hair, but lack the coordination to do one of those fancy trending updos? Or maybe you are just a college student who just plainly cannot afford to waste any more time when it comes to getting ready in the mornings. If you answered yes to any of the above, this beauty trend is perfect for you!

The messy side braid is an easy variation of your traditional braid. It goes with just about any outfit and is great for hair newbies. This hairdo is the perfect choice for a college student.

I spotted this Fashionista with an effortless messy side braid and the perfect outfit to pair it with. She wore a plain black crop top, button-up denim skirt, and an exquisite white leather jacket. She finished the look with a matte nude lip, a few simple gold accessories and a pair of trusty white converses. Her simple gold necklace with a monogrammed “T” added to the look without making it too busy. The necklace is also a great personal touch on the look since it stood for the first letter of her name. The leather jacket itself is an edgy piece, but by pairing it with a denim skirt and girly braid, her look was both edgy and feminine. By sporting a white leather jacket instead of the typical black, this Fashionista took a risk by taking the trend a step further, but I am totally digging the twist.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR: To get this look, straighten your hair (optional), bring all your hair to one side and put it into a simple braid and secure the hair with a hair tie. Then, if you want the style to stay in place for an entire school day, spray with hair spray.
