I was so excited when this lovely item came through the post this week (along with another lovely hair accessory which will be in my next post) and I literally tried it out as soon as it arrived, I couldn't wait!
There are so many festivals this year and if you are a festival chick you will definitely need to buy this to take with you. When I opened the box that this was in I instantly fell in love with it because of how pretty it looks, the flowers are so cute and this picture doesn't really do them any justice as they look even better in real life. The hair of the plait is synthetic hair I believe but it doesn't look like synthetic hair at all, we all know synthetic as being that cheap, shiny, tacky looking hair that doesn't look real whatsoever and I think this is what scares a lot of us when it comes to buying synthetic hair but honestly this looks so real and when on my hair blends in really well.
The braid has an elastic part at the back which makes it able to fit any size head whether you have a pea head like me (it seems so small) or a bigger head, this will fit you and the elastic isn't uncomfortable neither is the braid itself, it feels really comfortable and you can't even tell it's there until you look in the mirror, it is so lightweight.
There are so many ways that you can style your hair with the braid. I decided to do mine big and straight but slightly messy. On the first photo I have put the braid over my hair so that it pushes into my hair and gives some messy volume at the top, with doing this style you will see the elastic at the back of my head because it is placed over my hair rather than under whereas the second photo I have placed the braid under my hair at the back and sides and added more volume into it, by doing this it hides the elastic.
There are so many styles that you can do such as a fishtail plait/braid (which I haven't got the hang of doing yet), you could do a high big bun and wrap the braid around it or maybe even do beach waves or big curls then just add the braid into your style like I have on the photo's. There are so many ways to style it, I'm sure you will find one that suits you.
I have the shade Hot Toffee (4), there are 10 shades available, you will be sure to find one that will match your hair colour.
At the moment the Flower Braid is on offer for £7.99 on the Beauty Works website - link
Purchase one, I promise you won't regret it, it's perfect for summer, the price is great, and Pixie Lott has one which is very similar, so what you waiting for?
