    If your favorite hue falls within the red, pink, or coral category, this one should be a breeze. But if you’re like us and have a penchant for greens, blues, and purples, you might just have to get a little creative—colored mascara, anyone?

    Day 5: Be A Braid Babe

    Tousled waves and messy buns will never get old, but we dare you to give your sea salt spray a rest and try one of spring’s biggest hair trends: striking braids. Need ideas? Click through our gallery of 31 beautiful braids, or look to the ladies of Game of Thrones for inspiration.

    Try: Orofluido Elixir ($30) to smooth flyaways or Toni & Guy Sea Salt Spray ($17) to add texture.
