What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To recreate this look you will need hair elastics and lots of bobby pins, depending on how long your hair is. If you aren’t super confident in your French braid skills, check out a YouTube tutorial for some tips. Having a fine-tooth comb and a handheld mirror can also help. Fashionistas’ with finer hair can use a sea salt texture spray to make the braids hold better. A texture spray can also be used if you want beachy waves when you take out the braid. Make sure to use a finishing spray to settle flyaways and add shine.
