Beach Braids February 27 2014, 0 Comments

Mermaid-esque braids are a perfect compliment to your bikini.

Show off your tresses with these fashion focused tropical tied-up styles for beach babe glam.

Messy Mermaid Braids

 

How to video, I recommend pulling out the sides a bit more to give a slightly more messed up look to the style. Braids can also look best after a day on the beach once the wind has hit them a bit as it creates more of a boho theme, releasing wispy strands. Perfect look to take you from beach to bar.
