Heading to a pool party or a day on the beach? This no-fuss look will stay in place all day so you don’t have to! Step 1: Brush all of your hair to the back. How To: Spring Break Hair Step 2: Separate two side pieces from the front and twist both of them inward. How To: Spring Break Hair Step 3: Tie the two strands together in a knot, keeping them separate from the rest of your hair. How To: Spring Break Hair Step 4: Starting with either the left or right section, take a small strand of hair from one of the outer edges, and cross it over the opposite section of hair. Once you’ve added this strand to the other section, forget about it! You will always be working with just two sections, not three. How To: Spring Break Hair Step 5: Keep repeating this process from side to side until you reach the end.  As you work down, you can take smaller sections of hair if you want a tighter braid. Make sure you’re always taking strands from the outer edges. How To: Spring Break Hair Step 6: Tie an elastic band around the bottom, then gently pull the hair from the braid to make it a little wider. How To: Spring Break Hair Step 7: Give it a spritz of hairspray to set everything in place. How To: Spring Break Hair Step 8: Add flowers, starting from the outside and working in. Secure them by pulling the stems through your braid. How To: Spring Break Hair How To: Spring Break Hair How To: Spring Break Hair How To: Spring Break Hair Step 9: Go rock it!
