What better time than the end of summer to pull out all the stops when it comes to your hair?! We’re partnering with one of our favorite hair-care brands, Pantene — and one of our go-to jewelry shops, BaubleBar — to combine a show-stopping hairstyle with some statement-making gems! This inside-out French braid (also known as a Dutch braid) is gorgeous on its own, but we added bright pink hair chalk and chandelier earrings for some extra sparkle! Read on to learn how to achieve this easy yet stylish look.
How to get this look:
Use colored hair chalk (we used Hair Artist) on pieces of hair that you want to include throughout the braid. (Warning: it’s messy. Wear a smock or a towel!) Prep hair with Pantene Pro-V Stylers Extra Strong Hold Mousse at the roots, then blow-dry hair with a round brush to get extra volume. Curl hair around a 1.5-inch curling iron and apply Pantene Pro-V Blowout Extend Dry Shampoo for all-over texture. Dry shampoo is very important here — your hair needs to have texture in order to achieve this style!
1. Pull all hair over to one side. Take 3 pieces from the top and begin the inside-out braid. Gather a piece that’s about 3-5 inches wide and 1 inch thick.
2-4. Grab the outer piece (at forehead). Divide hair into three even strands, holding two sections in your left hand and the third section in your right hand. Bring the right-hand section under (instead of over) the middle section, and hold with your left hand. Take the outermost section from your left hand and bring it under the middle strand.
5. Continue down the side of your head, leaving out a few face-framing pieces. (If you’re bringing hair chalk into the mix, make sure a few of these hairs are chalk-colored ones.)
6. Finish with a clear elastic hair tie. Be sure to loosen the whole braid from top to bottom for a more relaxed look.
7. Use Pantene Pro-V Stylers All-In-One Styling Balm to define pieces around face.
8. Finish with Pantene Pro-V Stylers Flexible Hold Hairspray — and pretty BaubleBar jewelry to complete the look!
