Garnier Texture Tease: Messy Braided Bun

Since moving back to the east coast, I've re-discovered the dreaded humidity. Living in California I was blissfully forgetful of frizzy ends, fallen curls and the growth of hair outwards (you know.. like in the Friend's episode when Monica's hair reacts the humidity in Barbados....) I'm all for messy mermaid hair.. but it's still got to look good, right?!

So when Garnier asked me to create a hairstyle using their new De-Constructed Line I was over the moon! No longer working against the humidity, I decided to work with it. Plus I'm a wash-as-little-as-possible kind of gal and the Texture Tease product was ahhhhmazing! Here's my look. I promise it's easy and perfect for any kind of occasion!

First I decided to curl my next day, non-washed hair. I feel whenever you're creating a style, it's best to work with dirty hair. 

After that I did a little bit of comb teasing and added the Garnier De-Constructed Texture Tease Spray for some more texture. I prefer messy styles so the messier the better. 

Next I gathered my hair at the nape of my neck and began to braid. Make sure the braid is semi-tight at the beginning and then looser as you braid down. Secure with a clear elastic and pull the braid apart so it's not so perfect. I wanted it even messier to I added more Texture Tease spray to the braid itself. You can also pull out front pieces and give the crown a little push up.

Finally, I wrapped the braid around itself to create a messy bun. Slide in as many bobby pins as needed to keep the bun in place. Add a spritz of hair spray and voilĂ !! You're ready for a night out with a fab hairstyle!

Pssst.. Here's a sneak peek of an upcoming post when I wore this braided bun for date night!
