How to update your braid game this winter
And then I discovered this combo of braid options technically intended for back-to-school. But that can totally translate to party 'dos, right? (And, jeez, the kids are fancy these days.) Eighteen-year-old Brit vlogger Roxxsaurus shows us how to pull off the trifecta of braids against her pretty perfect backdrop of damask wallpaper, a rosette-dotted white vanity and matching acoustic guitar (is this a CW TV show set?). I'm also really digging her nose ring, Alexa Chung cat-eyes and Cara Delevingne eyebrows. But anyway, the braids.
First, the teen starts with the few tools necessary to complete looks, which is when we learn that "hair grips" mean bobby pins and "hair bubbles," elastics in British. Her first up-do is a breezy-chic, slightly undone fishtail braided top-knot. The lesson also doubles as a quick tutorial to master the four-stranded plait (one technique that's still lost on me). The second is a "Game of Thrones"-meets-Princess-Leia middle-parted, dutch braided, double twisted style that would be both a fantastic cheat for day two hair and an effortlessly cool holiday party 'do. Roxxsaurus' third style is a half-up, half down look that I think Khaleesi and fellow winter wedding (winter, not red) guests would approve of.
