Summer is almost here, and if you have long hair, you’ll need an up-do or two to keep your locks looking good even on the most humid of days. For a few years now, my go-to has been a braided crown – not only is it super easy to achieve, you can wear it for any occasion – from summer weddings, to music festivals, to brunch. And thanks to Shoppers Drug Mart, Nexxus, and Dove, I’m going to share The To ‘Do List for achieving this perfect summer hairstyle with you. As I mentioned, this is a pretty easy look to create. It works best on dirty-ish hair, so it’s a great hairstyle for those bad hair days.
To start, spray Dove Invigorating Dry Shampoo (must-have product for the summer!) on the roots to refresh, absorb oil, and add a bit of texture to your locks. Next, part your hair in the middle and split it in two sections. Braid each section (I prefer the fishtail braid, but any braid style would work), pulling hair away from your face. Once you’re done braiding, loosen the braids a bit to create more volume. This look works best when it’s a little messy, so don’t worry if a few locks are out of place. Grab one braid and wrap it over the top of your head, pinning until it’s secure. Take the other braid and do the same thing, tucking the end under the first braid and pinning in place. Spray Nexxus Comb Thru Touchable Hold Finishing Mist to secure the hairstyle. This hairspray is amazing because it doesn’t leave my hair feeling stiff or looking flaky, but still holds all of my favourite hairstyles in place. Once the braids are secure, you’re all done and ready for anything summer throws your way!
If you follow me on Snapchat (styleblogca), you already know that I have a bit of a Shoppers Drug Mart addiction. I probably end up stopping in at least 5 times a week for most of my household, beauty, and grocery shopping. It doesn’t help that the Shoppers App is so good at personalizing my coupons, and helping me rack up those Shoppers Optimum Points. If you’re not using the app, I can’t recommend it highly enough – it’ll help you save a ton of money while keeping your hair looking great. So tell me, do you have a go-to summer hairstyle? Share in the comments!
