Pardon My French Braid- It’s Messy!

 

IMG_8730

I’m always looking for a hairstyle that is cute, easy, and requires little time and heat. Most of the time, my go-to hairstyle is braids! Whether it’s a classic messy braid, fishtail, or braided pigtails, I love them because they are so effortless but they all look so different and are perfect for summer! Today I wanted to share a tutorial on these easy French braid pigtails that I’ve been loving lately so you can achieve an effortless, cute, messy braid for the summer!

First, brush your hair and get all of the tangles out. For me, this can be a chore!

Split your hair into two equal sections. (I like to make a zig zag shape in my hairline since I’m parting it down the middle. You can do this using a comb).

Take three small strands from from the front of one side and start a regular braid.

Begin your French braid by taking an extra piece of your hair each time you cross one of your three strands.

Continue French braiding while pulling your hair towards the back.

When you’ve reached the back of your head, begin a regular braid to finish out that side and tie the end with a rubber band (I use brown bands to match my hair).

Follow the exact same steps for the other side!

For a messy look, spray your hair with texturizing spray or a volume dry shampoo I use Kenra volume dry shampoo. I’ve gone through two bottles and I love it! Pull out your braids to the desired size. I pull them out unevenly to make it even more messy!

  1. Love your pigtail braids! This is one of the easiest styles for me as I’m an athlete and even outside of sports I don’t like my hair in my face haha.
    Looking forward to your future posts.
