Busy Philipps Long Straight   Light Golden Blonde Braided  Hairstyle  - Visual Story

Description

Busy Philipps is wearing a pretty braided hairstyle that can be done in minutes. If you want a folksy, artsy look to flaunt this summer, give this quick and easy style a try. These golden blonde locks are blow-waved smooth and left out to fall over the shoulders showing off the jagged cut length and long layers. The top is braided to expose the best facial features and completes the over-all style beautifully. This is the perfect 'do for attending a music festival. Coachella here we come!

This hairstyle works with any hair texture, but the braid is best seen on slightly wavy or straight hair. If you opt for straight hair, don't bust out the straighteners and do a rough blow-dry only - this style should look effortless.

Next, create a deep side hair part and grab a section of hair from the crown to start braiding. Busy has used a corn braid, which looks "raised" on top of the hair, unlike a French braid which is flat. To get this look, instead of placing the strands of hair on top of each other when braiding them together, reverse it and pull them underneath each other. Keep the tension loose and once you have reached mid-neck length, pin it back loosely behind your ear.

Voila' you have a boho braid in less than a minute!

Styling Steps

1. Apply Moisturizer

step 1

Apply a small amount of hair moisturizer to the palm of your hand and distribute it evenly through the mid-lengths and the ends. Moisturizer will help your hair to maintain good condition and protect your strands from heat as you style.


2. Use a Medium Radial Brush

step 2

A medium radial brush is used on medium to long hair types to smooth out wavy or curly hair textures or to add body to straight hair. When selecting a radial brush, always use one with a pure bristle as this will not tear or damage the hair.


3. Blow-dry Straight Back

step 3

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the nape/back. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends.


4. Blow-dry Straight on the Sides

step 4

Using your brush, blow-dry in small sections starting from the sides. Tilting your head forward, place the brush an inch below the roots to hold them taut and aim the dryer above the brush for a few seconds before continuing to the ends. Repeat this step on a new section directly above the dry one.


5. Pin Hair

step 5

Once your hairstyle is complete, hold your hair into place and then pin your hair into your desired direction.


6. Apply Smoothing Shine

step 6

Apply a very small amount of smoothing shine to the palms of your hands and then run it through the mid-lengths and ends of your hair. Be careful not to add any to the roots or a large amount to any section of the hair as smoothing shine can be very heavy on the hair, weighing it down and making it appear oily.
