From the Felder Felder runway at LFW to the Kardashian clan’s Snapchats, braids have been everywhere this year. And with their easy-to-manage, bohemian vibe, they’re proving to be the hairstyle for the festival season this year.
Partnering with Wella’s styling brand EIMI, our Creative Director, Kieron Fowles, has put together two looks that will have you looking Glastonbury-glam in no time. Pop into your local Supercuts and have one of our stylists work their magic…
Look One: The Halo Braid
Flowers are so 2015 – this year, your hair is your crown. For the Halo Braid, hair is reverse-braided down the parting and split into two smaller braids that are wrapped around the head to meet at the back. Complimenting this season’s ethereal trend, the rest of the hair is left in loose, effortless waves for a look that’s as pretty as it is practical.
Look Two: Messy Mane Braid
Girls with a wilder side will love the raw, rocky edge to our Messy Mane Braid. An extreme side parting and lots of volume at the roots creates a fearless silhouette, while a fishtail braid twisted close behind the ear has a faux undercut effect. A loose fishtail braid on the other side of the head finishes the disheveled, carefree look.
Protect Your Plaits with Eimi
Festivals scream out for low-maintenance hairstyles, and luckily these two on-trend ‘dos can be kept looking fab with help from just a few products. The Halo Braid will benefit from the flyaway-taming, heat-protecting benefits of Eimi Perfect Me Spray, while the Eimi Sugar Lift Spray is perfect for adding texture and lift to girls with the Messy Mane Braid. A good dry shampoo is a must-have for festival season, and Eimi Dry Me will refresh hair and help to maintain these bold styles. Finally, the Eimi Stay Styled hairspray is the go-to for hair that need to be kept in place while remaining manageable.
Our two new Festival Looks are only available for a short period of time, and prices start from £7.95. Pop in to your local Supercuts today.
