How To: Halo Braid

I have been loving rocking a halo braid recently. It's a super easy look to achieve but makes you look like you've put some effort in with your hair! (It's also perfect for those days where your hair really needs a wash and you just can't be bothered) 

Step 1. Divide your hair evenly into two sections.

Step 2. Divide each section again with the front section being the loose bits that will frame your face. 

Step 3. Plait the back section on each side. 

Step 4. Secure with a clear elastic so that when you pin your braid it can't be seen! 

Step 5. Loosen each plait to the thickness you prefer. 

Step 6. Pull each plait over your head and pin away! 

Step 7. Pin back any loose bits of hair that are annoying you and any bumps in your braid! 

Step 8. Add some hairspray to tame any frizz and ensure you're braid will stay all day!

Voila! There you have a classy, cute hairstyle which is super easy to achieve.
