EASY SUMMER HAIRSTYLE

Monday, 4 August 2014


Ahead of tomorrow's video where you'll see this hair-do in action, I wanted to write about this really simple Summer hairstyle. I got lots of nice comments on this vlog about my hair on the Sunday, so here's how I did it...

I'm not one for fancy hairstyles so this is really easy. You start by making a centre parting in your hair and taking one section from the front side. You then loosely plait this section leaning the plait away from your face. Do the same on the other side. 

Once you have two plaits you just pull them back and fasten them with kirby grips on the back of your head. You can use the grips to tidy up any bumpy bits although I don't think it's supposed to be a tidy look.

I think the plaits looks really pretty for Summer and this style takes literally minutes to do. It's also a good one for greasy hair days!

So what do you think? Will you give it a go?

  12. I do this look all the time except I put elastics at the end of my plaits and then secure them behind my head with another elastic. With the two end of the plaits I twist them to look like a rose and secure it with bobby pins. My friends call it my 'Game of Thrones' hairstyle :) x

  20. I really love the simplicity of this hairstyle but I can never seem to get it right, I always get bits of my hair sticking up at the of the braid, if you know what I mean and it's so frustrating!
