HAIRSTYLES YOU'VE NEVER TRIED BEFORE

We can get stuck in ruts with our hair sometimes and end up doing the same old hairstyle every day. We've written a few 'How to' posts on different hairstyles before but we've found some looks that are so different from anything you've seen - a challenge to create but super cool once you achieve them. 

All it takes is a little pomade and hairspray here and there, knowing how to work your hair texture and playing around with it to make it your own style. These looks are perfect for creative photo shoots, festivals or even just to go the supermarket! 

 

BRAIDED TOPKNOT

This is the trickiest one. Learning how to braid your hair upside down is a mission. Ask a friend for help if you can and once you reach the top of your head wrap the remaining straight hair into a towering topknot leaving around 5 inches of your hair out. Add extensions if needed!

CORNROWS

These aren't just any old cornrows. For starters, the braids face different directions and are different sizes. The braids also have pieces of hair coming out them that blends into the rest of the straight hair. Lots of pomade for this one to keep those baby hairs down!

DOUBLE TWIST

This one looks way more complicated than it is but is by far our favourite! Start by sectioning your hair into 6 squares and securing with plastic bands. Start braiding with 2 pieces of hair to create a tight twist and work your way diagonally through the 6 squares making sure that there are no gaps. Finish at the ends of your hair on each side with a band and you're good to go!

FRINGE BRAID

A unique style if you want your hair down. Make a deep side parting and take the front section of the side that has the most hair. Start braiding down towards your ear, making sure to miss out a strand on each braid to get this effect. Keep braiding in front of your ear until you reach the end and tuck the rest of your hair behind your ears. There you have it!

Will you be trying any of these out?
