Hippie Braids

Barefoot BlondeThis has been a total go to hairstyle for me this summer (I am sure you can tell if you follow my insta!), especially since it is SO quick and easy to do. Maybe it is just me but I think it kind of gives off a hippie vibe which I love. I first wore it in San Francisco in this instagram, and have since gotten lots of requests for a tutorial, but honestly it doesn’t need a video tutorial because of how easy it is so I decided to do a simple hair how to! Here are the steps..

1. Take a section from either side (your good side :) ) and do a basic braid starting about two inches from the front of your hairline.

2. Take the section of hair in front of the braid and an equal section from the other side and pin it in back of your head.

3. Take the excess hair from the sections that you just pinned and braid that as well.

4. To hold this look all day, finish with TRESemmè TRES Two Extra Hold Hairspray and you are done!

    I suggest a mix of 20-25 roses by 50 % different colors, and around 10-15
