No time for a shower? No worries. These styles will keep that day-old (or week-old) hair looking good, no matter the situation
Loved the waterfall braid? Then you've got to try this double braided look. It takes a little bit longer, but the result is gorgeous and hard to take your eyes off of. Here's how Scarbrough says to get it:
1. Apply a dime-sized amount of shine serum like Pureology Shinemax, $28, to your fingers and run them through the top section of your hair to make the braiding easier.
2. Starting from the left side of your hair, take a 2-inch piece of hair near your temple and split it into three sections. Braid your hair like you normally would a few times to create a base for the French braid.
3. When you're about three inches away from the temple of your head, begin French braiding your hair. Take a small piece of hair from the top, and add it to the middle section of your braid.
4. Then take the left strand of hair at the bottom, and bring it over the center strand of hair. This is when you'll drop the right strand of hair (which is now at the bottom of all three sections) and let it fall. Pick up another small section of hair right next to where your original strand fell. This is your new right strand.
5. Repeat steps three and four, moving the braid along across the back of your head. Continue to add hair from above the braid and drop the strands below the braid as you go. When the braid reaches the other side, secure it to your head with bobby pins.
6. Now you're going to start your second waterfall braid. Grab another 2-inch section of hair an inch or two near the temple below your first braid. You'll do the same thing as the first braid; only this time, you'll be using the dropped pieces from the first waterfall braid as the "right" strand for your second waterfall braid. Just feed them straight into the section that needs to be dropped from the second braid to maintain a woven look.
7. Do this all the way across, maintaining the same distance below your first braid. When the braid reaches the other side, secure it to your head with bobby pins.
