BEAUTY BAR: Plot Twist

A beach-inspired look is always in style during the summer! The heat calls for nothing else. Loose-fitting clothes and easy breezy hairstyles are two popular summer trends. This Fashionista merges them very well in her look.

Her front braid and loose waves are what caught my attention the most. On a day when the heat was extreme, they definitely made me daydream about being on a beach somewhere in California. The braided crown is very feminine and instantly gives off an air of sophistication. The beachy waves nicely balance it out by projecting a boho and laid back vibe!

Her dress only adds to that! The loose texture and sleeveless feature are ideal for those hot summer days when you want to beat the heat and still look fashionable. The green color nicely pairs with her spike necklace and the details on her sandals . Her brown handbag adds coherence to the look and nicely finishes it off. This outfit is in perfect harmony with her hairstyle! It is fresh, light and very ladylike.

What’s on the BEAUTY BAR? To recreate this intricate hairstyle, simply grab a section of your hair just behind the hairline from the crown of your head and part into three, even pieces. Braid all the way down and fasten with a hair-tie that is similar to the color of your hair in order for it to blend in. Repeat the same process on the other side. Use a curling wand to create those loose curls.Thoroughly back comb the section of hair behind the braids to create lift and fullness. Pick one braid at a time, wrap it around the back and fasten it with small bobby pins into the teased section of your hair. Do the same thing on the other side and crisscross the second braid under the first to hide the hair ties. Once you master it, you’re ready to go out and look fabulous!
