Along with makeup artists, hairstylists rank pretty high on our list of people we’d like to have around all the time. That’s just one reason we’re so excited to have hairstylist Kate Bryan guest blogging for us today. The other reason? We’re obsessed with her blog, The Small Things, which covers beauty, jewelry, and — you guessed it — the small things in life. Check back for her posts all week!
Today I’m going to share one of my favorite hairstyles, the Tucked Away French Braid. This style is perfect for getting some hair out of your face. Plus, braids are so in style right now. Nearly every hair length can attempt this technique, so give it a try!
While my hair is curled, you can also do the Tucked Away French Braid on straight hair. The most important part is having product in your hair before you begin. Whether that is hairspray or a root lifter that you sprayed in before blow drying, the product will give your hair some hold when you are braiding and keep hair from slipping out of each section.
If you need to brush up on curling your hair with a flatiron, this video will help.
Kate also has an awesome Birchbox giveaway on her blog right now! Read about it HERE for more information and to enter.
