Face it: Without your own personal stylist (and, you know, the budget to afford one), there's no way you'll ever be able to pull off celebrity 'dos, right?
Wrong. So, so wrong.
With a little creativity (and some patience), you can rock hairstyles straight off the red carpet. Today's tutorial: Halo braid how-to, à la Scarlett Johansson.
What you'll need:
- One clear elastic
- Bobby pins
Before you begin:
- Braids (and lots of other styles) hold better when your hair is slightly dirty, so I suggest trying this style on second day hair. If you have to start out with freshly washed and blow-dried hair, dirty it up a bit before braiding. My go-to product is Kenra's Texturizing Taffy. (Note: a little goes a long way, so use it sparingly.)
- For this hairstyle, you'll need to know how to French braid first. For newbies or anyone who needs to "brush" up (see what I did there?) on her braiding skills, check out our French braid tutorial before proceeding.
Let's get started.
1. Section off the top half of your hair and secure it out of the way.
8. Pull the remaining braid in the direction of the halo, on top of where you started with the French braid.
9. Take one bobby pin and secure the remaining braid on top of the French braid.
For the love of hair,
