Braided Beauty

Hair by Phil Smith using Phil Smith Be Gorgeous

Looking for a sassy, easy and a go-to hairstyle while tying your hair up? We reckon that braids are the most sought-after way to jazz up a simple ‘do.

1. Create a centre parting and comb your hair well. You can choose to leave the waves in your hair for added texture or straighten them for a slick look.

2. Start braiding right from the centre, taking small sections from the front till you reach the end of your ear. Repeat this on the other side as well.

3. Tie the rest of the hair in a ponytail and secure it with a hair tie. Brush your hair for a well-finished look.

4. Use bobby-pins to secure your braid in place. Use a hairspray to tame any unwanted flyaway hair. You can accessorise your braid with quirky pins if you like.

Pro Tip: Use a hair protecting serum before you start to style your hair. This will ensure minimal damage to hair because of hairstyling tools.
