How To: Get Jessica Simpson's Summer Braids

How To: Get Jessica Simpson's Summer Braids

This How To is for those of you who have written in asking me about the cute summer braids Jessica Simpson was seen wearing yesterday and again over the weekend. This style is great for summertime, because it's quick, easy and it gets your hair off of your face. It can be created on wet or dry hair, no sticky styling product is required and it is a great option for those of you who have bangs in that awkward in between stage. All you need are two hair clips and two hair elastics.

For directions on how to create these simple summer braids at home,

  • Step 1: Part your hair where it would naturally fall and divide the rest of your hair into three sections. The first is the front left which should be left loose for braiding, the second is the front right which will also be braided and the third is the rest of your hair which will not be braided. Clip the front right and the back of your hair so that you can begin braiding in a neat and organized way.
  • Step 2: Begin braiding the left front of your hair in either a reverse corn-row style braid or in an inverse, french style braid. Braid hair on an angle starting from your roots and working down toward your ear. As you work on each braid, incorporate strands in even amounts on either side of the braid so that your hair lies flatly and securely against your head.
  • Step 3: When you get to your ear, you shouldn't have any more hair to pick up, so finish the braid in a slightly looser style than the rest of your hair. Braid until the very end and secure with a hair-tie of your choice.
  • Step 4: Repeat steps two and three on the right front section of your hair. You can either leave the back loose or you can put it in a ponytail, a loose bun, a knot, a twist or a braid of its own!

yes she is definitely immensely annoying. but i do love the braids. i particularly like the 'heidi style....two braids (one on each side of the head) and then met and secured at the top of the head. Gorgeous. i also love beautiful side braids bunched at the ends...
