Girl On-The-Go: “Date Night” Braid

 Hair – Jason J Dougherty // Makeup – Cristina Marroquin // Photography – Edwin Pabon

We all want to look great for our date. In the summer, the excitement of getting ready often gets replaced with concerns about controlling our hair frizz. Luckily, the solution is as simple as a braided ‘do. Braids offer a fun way to accessorize your features, your makeup, your earrings, or your outfit. The benefits of pulling up your hair into a braid are practical, too. A style such as Jason’s half crown braid, half loose side knot is fast to create and it wears well. It’s something you can feel comfortable in AND confident about all night!

“I created a more versatile take on the crown braid by pairing a textured, sexy braid with a messy bun. It’s a less polished version, which is a lot more flirty and stylish without appearing overdone. What makes this pulled back braid a perfect choice for a night out is its added texture. This transforms the hairstyle into a much more effortless yet romantic look, and you will also find that it helps in making it easier to achieve. In short, we’re combining two braids, teasing, and then tucking the hair into a loose shape. To get the right kind of textured look, don’t forget to rub the braid with your hands for that undone finish.” -Jason J Dougherty
