STEP 1

Start with dry (preferably dirty!) hair. Section part of it up and use a curling wand to begin curling the bottom pieces. To get more of a wave and less of a barrel/Shirley Temple curl, simply don’t hold the curl as tightly (or on the iron for as long!).

Once you’re done curling the bottom section, let the top section down and begin to curl.

STEP 4

Grab a small bit of the front section on each side of your head and begin to braid towards the back. {Pro tip from Mollie: If you braid underneath instead ofย over, your braid will be a lot smoother and more textured. Super easy once you get the hang of it!}. Repeat on the other side.

STEP 5

To finish it off, take the top braid, tuck the end under the bottom braid, and secure with a bobby pin. You should have the braids sitting on top of each other, with the tail sticking out to keep it from looking too “done.” And that’s it! So easy and pretty – well worth the minimal effort ;).ย Pair with a bold red lip and you’re ready to celebrate the holiday of love in style!
