We're always on the lookout for chic and effortless ways to style our hair, particularly in the summer months or on our beach vacations. Redken Session Stylist, Noah Hatton, suggests we take our cue from Jennifer Aniston and the sexy hairline side-braid she flaunted at the Oscars.
To create the side braid, start by creating a low side-part, says Hatton. Then, pull a two-inch front hair section away from the larger side of the part and separate from the rest of the head – this will be the hair included in the braid. Begin French braiding this piece right along the forehead hairline, stopping two to three inches from top of the ear. Secure with bobby pins, or a hair clip for an added accessory element.
Hatton recommends you keep the natural texture for the rest of your hair or pull it back into a ponytail. Spritz it all with a touch of hairspray, like Redken Workforce 09 Flexible Volumizing Spray. It doesn't get any easier than that!
