Now that it is Summer, don't expect us to wash our hair every day! We gladly welcome lazy beach beauty — even when we're nowhere near a seaside. One way to do this is by styling your mane into a breezy braid, but if you're sick of a french, classic, three-strand, or waterfall style, we've got something new for you. Meet the lobster-tail braid. It's similar to its sister the fishtail, but it's a bit looser and looks messy (in an #IWokeUpLikeThis way). To help you master the nautical-chic style before your Labor Day barbecue, follow the steps here, created by Mario Russo of Salon Mario Russo in Boston. Happy plaiting!
