Nicole Kidman’s piece-y braid

Messy braids are perfect for that “casual summer look,” say Martinez and Silverman. And a sassy side braid like Nicole Kidman’s? Even better. Here’s how to get the look:

1. Start by parting your hair slightly to the side.

2. Towel-dry your hair and mist it with texturizing spray. Rough dry it with your hands to add more texture.

3. Gather all of your hair to one side, and start braiding it from the nape of your neck. Angle the braid over one shoulder, and secure it with a clear elastic.

4. Tug at the braid to loosen it a bit, and mist all over with anti-humidity hairspray to prevent flyaways.
