Hair Envy: Kim K's springtime braids!

by Christina

The springtime braid trend is back yet again, and I personally could not be happier! I simply adore the youthful/fun trend and find that it truly freshens up any boring hair do.

Case in point: Kim Kardashian, known for her signature soft waves decided to mix up her usual 'do by adding small braids on each side of the hair at the Kid's Choice Awards this weekend.

To try the trend: First spritz your hair with a heat protectant (I like Tresemme) Next, Curl your hair by wrapping small sections around a 1 inch curling iron. Once the entire head of hair is curled, loosen and soften the curls by running your fingers through them and spritz with your favorite hairspray. Part hair to one side, and pull 1/2 inch sections from each side. Begin braiding and secure with a clear elastic band. Remember, the braids should not be too thick, and stiff looking...they should have a bit of movement like the rest of your hair.

Are you loving this trend? Have you tried it out for spring yet?
