Second Look: The Messy Braid
The Messy Braid is one trend that the stars have been rocking from season to season. “This style is a juxtaposition: soft and pretty at the face, but the back of the head should a beautiful disaster with twisted, intertwined texture,” says Crawford.
Step 1: Use Finesse Self Adjusting Moisturizing Shampoo and Conditioner to ensure hair is washed and well conditioned. Comb wet hair with a wide tooth comb, or your finger (it will leave your hair looking more natural) and allow hair to air dry or use a diffuser.
Step 2: Flip your head upside down and break apart the piecey strands, while lightly spraying Finesse Self Adjusting Hairspray on the middle the shaft to the ends and then scrunch your strands.
Step 3: Toss your hair back right side up and then toss your hair to both sides of head and spray with Finesse Self Adjusting Hairspray and scrunch the strands, holding the hairspray 10-12 inches away from your head. You want the middle to the end of your hair a little rough but not a tangled mess.
Step 4: Now that your hair looks like you just came out of the dryer, pull your hair back off your face without using any combs or brushes
Step 5: Start braiding your hair on the top of the crown, making sure your hair is close to the sides of your head, near your temples. The back can be loose and messy. Spray Finesse Self-Adjusting Hairspray to the braid as you near the nape of neck to hold the look.
Step 6: Secure the braid at the nape of neck with a rubber band and let the rest of your hair fall into a ponytail. Leave the ends as they are, or tease them to make the style more full.
