The Video: Halo Braid Tutorial

A.K.A the one pretty much every single one of you requested! It really is easy peasy, just a simple braid and pin technique. I’m not overly precious about it and I think that adds to the laid back look. Sometimes it looks like a pro did it, but mostly it just looks messy and sometimes like i’ve slept in it – thats because sometimes I have…

One of the things I love about this is that it fits in really well with most outfits. Sometimes I find that my hair is at an awkward length and looks wrong down, but a ponytail doesn’t look right either. So I just end up wearing this most days. It’s a little bit more boho than Blair Waldorf due to the messy loose look, which works quite nicely with the majority of my outfits – messy and loose with a bit of something interesting.

Some days I let more front pieces loose or curl them, but most days this is just it. If you prefer things to look really perfect, you can pull the front pieces into the braid so they’re not loose. You can also decide where exactly you pin the braid. I tend to pull mine more towards the front of my hair, but you can pin them further back. I just find the way I do it looks better with my little egg head!

Don’t forget to tweet me a picture if you try this, I’ve been loving flicking through all of your photos this weekend – it makes me SO HAPPY! πŸ˜€

    I loved this! I've been wearing this hair style quite a lot over the past few weeks and it's really cute. I love your gingham shirt too! Is that Zara? That's on my wish list along with the matching shorts…

    Thank you so much for the video. Was really struggling with the halo braid as my hair is relatively short. After watching this though I have it nailed and I can see it being my go to hairstyle over the next few months. Thanks! X
