The Only Hair Inspiration You Need This Weekend

Side Fishtail Braid
This braid by Barefoot Blonde is simple, elegant, and perfect to wear while sipping mimosas during Sunday brunch. First, start with a deep side part. Then give your strands some texture by winding one-inch sections around a curling iron. Take the texturized sections and twist them away from your face. Working your way down, combine a couple more sections and secure with a bobby pin or small rubber band. Finish with a finishing spray, like Living Proof’s Flex Shaping Spray ($24), to keep everything in place without the stiffness of hairspray.

Split your hair evenly down the back. For clean, polished braided pigtails, run some of Alterna’s Bamboo Smooth Kendi Oil Dry Oil ($25) through your hair. Then start braiding, making sure to twist the middle piece towards the outside each time. Repeat on the other side.

Long Side Bangs
This romantic side-swept bang can easily be taken from day to night. Curl the ends of your bangs using a large-barrel curling iron. Then apply Kérastase’s Resistance Spray Volumactiv ($40) for a soft finish.

Loosely Tied Braid
For this messy plait, braid your hair how you normally would, leaving the ends untouched. Wrap into an imperfect bun and keep it in place with a hair elastic.

The exception to that time low buns were cooler than topknots: this topknot. Pull your hair upward and secure with an elastic. For volume, spritz Bumble and Bumble’s Thickening Dryspun Finish Spray ($16), then backcomb. Twist your hair into a circular shape around the elastic, secure with hairpins, and you’re done.
