Winter Hair Fixes: Braving Braids
Rate this post

It’s that time of year where we struggle every morning to come up with a way of having a good hair day and, of course, for it to last all day.  What with the rain, storm forced winds, sleet and snow, you name it, your hair goes through a constant battle with the elements.

So, what to do?  Well we think opting for braids is one great way to tame the locks.  Now, don’t panic, we are not talking Pippi Longstocking, 12 year old girl braids, we are talking grown up, sophisticated braided chic.

To achieve a great braided look that will last, your hair needs to have a bit of texture.  One word: product.  Opt for products that give your hair texture and body as well as gently cleansing and hydrating your hair.  Achieving good condition will give your hair some grip and a longer-lasting braid.

  • Begin by keeping your hair loose around the head.
  • Start at the nape of the neck and braid right down the length of your hair.
  • Secure the end of the braid with an elastic and carefully pull the hair loose to add movement and casual texture.
  • For a final touch, spritz hair with extra hold hairspray to give the style staying power.  Non-sticky hairspray also helps control those flyaway hairs and gives humidity-resistant flexible hold.

And that’s it.  Not a Pippi Longstocking in sight.  Whether your hair is medium in length or falls down your back we think braids are brilliantly versatile.  They work just as well for daytime as they do for a great night out.  Depending on your mood and your styling products, they can be sleek and elegant or casual and full of texture.
