The Waterfall Braid

If you want to channel your inner fairy then this is the style to go for. The waterfall braid is a very romantic hairstyle that exudes innocence and femininity. Pair up the hair style with a white dress to emphasize the look or thread flowers through the braid to get a forest nymph look going on. This hairstyle will give you an ethereal look that even fairies will envy – use it wisely.

The Messy Bun

There is no better style for that #IWokeUpLikeThis look that will still have you looking sexy and cute as a button in an effortless way. What is great about this style for ombre hair is that you will get the rare opportunity to show off the hues in the bottom layer of your hair, with the added benefit of having your hair completely off the back of your neck on those super hot days. This style is great to use when you’re wearing an off shoulder top because it will draw attention to your neck line and shoulders, try it out on your next date night – you’re welcome!

The Double Bun

All you 90s babies might remember this one – this style first became popular in the 90s and was the go-to style for Baby Spice of Spice Girls. The style made a comeback recently along with other cute things from the 90s like crop tops and chokers. Celebrities like Khloe Kardashian, Miley Cyrus and Arianna Grande have been seen sporting the look on regular days or even on stage/at events. Definitely one to try!

The Side Braid

What I love about the side braid is that it works for both short and long hair! In order to get a clean look, start out by straightening your hair before you braid it. Once you’re done, curl the ends of your hair to get a wavy look that will have your bouncing with every step you take. This look is bound to get heads turning!

I know you’re already rifling through your makeup bag and room searching for pins and ties to try out these styles out. However, if you don’t have the time to master a look for an event or just want to be pampered for a day then get in touch with our hair and makeup professionals from Gawin.ph now, and they’ll have you looking #InstaWorthy in no time!
