Amber Heard, Looped Braid Style

 

If you’re a fan of the messy boho look with added intricacy, then this is the style for you!

Amber Heard is a big fan of braided styles and is regularly seen sporting some incredible plaited creation that manages to look completely fabulous whilst retaining that super sexy relaxed finish.

Amber’s style is designed using Herringbone plaits pinned up into a looped, flyaway style which is actually fairly simple to do if you know the right techniques (which can be learned on our braiding course!). Paired with an edgy and almost futuristic looking cat-eye, this completed look is a real show-stopper.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466850719384{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Amanda Seyfried, Tight Dutch Braids

 

Ditching her usual ‘natural girly-girl’ look for a hair and makeup style that can only be described as fierce and fabulous at the ‘While We Were Young’ premiere. Amanda Seyfried’s tight dutch braided style is an excellent example of the contemporary rock chic fashion we keep seeing pop up, with just a gentle nod towards nineties styling.

This style isn’t for everyone, but it is absolutely perfect for someone who loves making a statement with their hair choices and wants to flaunt their beautiful, strong bone structure and we love trying out statement styles on our braiding course!

The key to making this style great is to be able to control the plaits well as you create them, to keep them as smooth and tight as possible. Finish with a glossing spritz to boost that shine and you’ll be all set![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466851285094{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Elle Fanning, Floral Crown Braid

 

Elle Fanning was spotted with a gloriously girly floral crown braid for the premiere of ‘The Neon Demon’ and we are loving it for bridal, bridesmaid and even flower girl hairstyle inspiration.

This is the perfect style for a summer wedding, keeping the hair away from the face and neck and embracing an utterly feminine feel. We just adore the combo of neat but chunky braids, studded with big bright blooms for a real Boheme, flower child vibe.

This could be an ideal option for bridesmaids accompanying a bride who has chosen to go for having her hair down for the big day, with flowers selected to choose the wedding colour scheme.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466851644292{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Kate Bosworth, Slicked Back Braids

 

Kate Bosworth wore a similar style to Elle Fanning’s at ‘The Big Sur’ premiere, but instead of leaning towards the laid back boho side of things, her hair stylist decided to give her more of a slick, modern finish making this look a bit more catwalk.

This style would work beautifully with a number of different braids that you could learn on our braiding course to make it look even more sleek. Paired with just a little bit of volume at the top and front of the style to give it that fashion feel, this is definitely a braided style to try for 2016.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1466851872313{margin-top: 32px !important;margin-bottom: 32px !important;}”]

Hairstylists How To: January Jones Twisted French Braid

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]

For the premiere of Man Men series 7 January Jones rocked a twisted French braid and a unique makeup look – blue eyeliner on the top lashes and gold on the bottom. This pretty summer style is actually three braids in one using a trio of techniques to create an undone, twisted look.

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”32px”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

How to

Step one: Begin with freshly washed hair and while it is still damp apply some mousse which will help to make styling easier.

Step two: While you are blow dying, back comb the hair and mist over with some finishing spray to tame flyaways.

Step three: Now that the hair is dry apply a small amount of oil through the mid lengths to the ends as this will make the hair much easier to braid.

Step four: Now you can begin braiding. Split the hair into three sections, left, right, and bottom, allowing the parting to fall naturally. Start with the section on the right and form a French braid. It should begin right at the very top of the head and finish at the lower neck. Secure with a clear hair elastic.

Step five: Next, take hold of the section on the left hand side. This should be used to make a rope braid right along this side. When you have finished you can connect this braid with the one on the right, using a clear hair elastic.

Step six: You should have one section of unbraided hair left. Use this to create a regular braid, braiding tightly from the top to the bottom. Fix with and elastic when you get to the end.

Step seven: Take hold of the three separate braids and plait together to make one finished braid. Secure it with another clear elastic. If there are strands which naturally frame the face then gently bend these with hair straighteners. Once you are happy you can spray all over the hair with finishing spray.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]
