Rodarte-Inspired Messy Braid

Time to break out the boho! You're going to love this adorably disheveled, braided 'do.

"It’s a lot easier to recreate than you think," explains guest contributor Steph Brinkerhoff. "It’s best to start on wavy or second-day hair to give the look added texture. It also doesn’t hurt to spray a little hairspray or spray wax in it beforehand to add a little grip and grunge."



step by step

Here's how you can get the look:


1. Beginning on wavy hair, take a medium to large section (depending on how thick the hairis) close to the right ear.


2. Braid the section going from the front to the back.


3. Repeat on the opposite side.


4. Bring both braids to the back and secure them with an elastic.


5. Loosen and mess up both braids by pulling on them gently with your fingers.


6. Take one braid and wrap it up and around itself, creating a small braided bun.


7. Secure with bobby pins.
