Confession: when it comes to our hair, we play it safe.

We’ll go crazy metallic nails or purple mascara before we venture outside our comfort zone with a new ‘do. Plus, like our beloved Céline Audrey’s, our hair gives us something to hide behind when we’re hungover as hell. It’s one of the few things in life where you can actually do nothing, and get away with it (yeah, my bed hair is totally intentional – I worked on it for 8 hours).

That said, even we get the itch to step it up a bit sometimes.

Picture this: mid-summer in Tulum, Lisa Marie Fernandez bikini, RayBan shades and a perfectly dishevelled braid, full of beachy texture swaying down our backs = impossible beach babe.

Or this:

501’s, a white tee, no make-up make-up and a braid with a few pieces casually falling out around the face. Dreamy.

With this in mind, we decided to get our sh*t together, and actually attempt what we once considered impossible – the braid. And guess what? Turns out there’s one step we’d been missing all along that makes life 100% easier.

So without further adieu, let us show you the easiest way to nail a dishevelled braid ever. All you need is two hands, a few elastics, texture spray, 5 minutes and you’ve got it in the bag.
