#SquadHairGoals: Tiny Braids Down ‘Do
Hey, lady! We know you have a serious case of the Mondays, but luckily there’s a new #SquadHairGoals sesh to get you through the post-weekend slump. Last week, we hit up the curly-hair deep side part for our ladies rocking major waves. This week, we celebrate tiny braids in all their itty-bitty glory. We love rocking them with a casual down ‘do to add sexy volume and dimension to our tresses. Scroll down for super easy steps to upgrade this classic style. Get it, gurl!
And be sure to come back for another sassy installment of #SquadHairGoals.
STEP 1: MOUSSE IT UP
Use Not Your Mother’s Whip It Up Cream Styling Mousse ($15) because it smells like frosting and feels so silky in your hands and hair. Prepping with product will help your curls and tiny braids stand the test of time — not to mention, we love the luxe texture!
STEP 2: CURL IT UP
Next, use a 1 1/2-inch curling rod to create luscious beach waves. No need to be strategic with your curls. Sporadic spacing will give your locks a casual vibe that’s perfect for a boho look. Feel free to let some of your natural texture shine through too.
STEP 3: TEASE TO SET THE ENDS
Begin creating tiny braids, in varying widths, throughout your head (mostly in the back and a few on the sides). Set your braids in place by teasing the ends with a rattail comb. This step will create that coveted texture and inject your ‘do with some serious ‘tude.
Finish the look with a touchable holding spray to ensure long-lasting body. Don’t be afraid to rub your hands through your hair and celebrate the hair goddess that you are. This look is giving us all kinds of vacay vibes, so sit back, sip your rosé and enjoy!
Catch ya next week for another stunning look from this #SquadHairGoals series!
