As someone who longs for long hair, I finally decided to go for extensions. I enlisted my friend, celeb hair stylist Merylin Mitchell for the job. I have to admit, best decision I’ve made in a while. There are so many fun and fast ways to wear it…this summer try these quick and super hot easy looks for long locks. These are my absolute faves!
Jennifer Lawrence’s messy braided bun by Mark Townsend is gorgeous. She rocked this braid at the Hunger Games premiere and looked stunning. He braided in a sparkly headband from Jennifer Behr, twisted the whole braid into a bun and used bobby pins to hold it in place. Love it!
Another super pretty and quick look is the side messy braid. Jordin Sparks sported this beautiful braid to the American Idol finale. It’s loose, long and can be worn day or night. Before you make your braid be sure to leave some hanging out in front and do not braid it to the side too tightly. Seriously simple, right?
Charlize Theron had the ever so elegant tight side braid at the Critics’ Choice Awards. It is great for an evening out on the town, especially for those hot and humid summer nights. To achieve a similar look at home, be sure to add a mousse to your hair before drying for texture. Make a tight side braid, be sure to keep it sleek, (Hair Spray can help) wrap it, then use bobby pins to hold it in place on the side. Ooh la la, you are ready to go.
dishin’ tip: Have fun with these looks, add a bit of color. Try the clip on hair extension by Sultra Hair at Sephora ($18).
