here-to-there hair, the wanderlust edition
posted: June 23, 2014
From sun up to sun down, tossing that luscious mane into a high bun or low pony is easily a no brainer. But what if we told you about a ’do that looks like a braid master created it and that you could whip up in 10 minutes or less? Or better yet, have it stay in all day, all night and have it look better as the day wore on. Didn’t expect that, did you?
Last year our Community Brand Manager and Wanderlust veteran, Carly, shared her three favourite tips for Wanderlust. This year, we’re updating that list with a fun addition for our stylish yogis. If you’re looking to functionally keep hair out of your eyes in down dog from dawn to dusk, just press play.
How to create Here-To-There Hair:
1. Start by parting your hair down the middle, from front to back. Tie one side back while you work on the other.
2. Take the hair at the nape of the neck and split it into three parts to start your first braid.
3. Create an inside-out French braid by crossing the sections under one another (instead of over one another, as you would in a traditional French braid). Work around the side of your head, keeping the braid tight against your scalp.
4. Continue all the way across the top of your forehead, securing the end with an elastic. Let the braid hang out there while you get to work on the other side.
5. For the second braid, you’ll start at the top of the head (not the nape, like you did with the first). Do another inside-out French braid around the side of your head, finishing down your back. Secure the end with an elastic.
6. You’ve completed your braids – whoop! To create the illusion of thicker locks, pull on the outside edges of the braid.
7. Finally, the fun part: securing your crown! Use bobby pins to hold the style in place and hide the tails by tucking them under the braids. Finish the look with a little hairspray.
