What to Pack for Spring Break

Good news, Aerie girls…Spring Break is almost here! After daydreaming about lying on the beach with our besties since, oh, December, we can’t wait to hit the sand and stay there all week (with plenty of sunscreen, of course!).

Obviously perfecting your beach style is an essential part of the week. Check out our packing guide to be sure you’re not missing any of the necessities!

Oceanside Stylin': 

We’ll be posted up on the beach all day, thank you very much! The Holly Scallop Bikini and a reversible bottom (perfect for any Aerie girl with commitment phobia), is sure to make a splash.

Don’t forget sunny day essentials like a hat, beach blanket and sunscreen – nothing ruins a vacation like a sunburn!

Sometimes, there are only so many days a girl can do absolutely nothing. We’ll be spending at least one day experiencing our Spring Break destination with some sightseeing! (Extra props for using your trusty map, but we won’t tell if you use your phone.) Break out your most adventurous swim style for the occasion – perfect for exploring!

Last Rays of Spring Break:

Spring Break, like all good things, must come to an end. Make your last day memorable by mixing it up and take some risks with your style! A mix-and-match look with a hi-rise bottom shows you’re up on Spring’s newest trends, and have the confidence to rock them! Get it, girl.

Pro tip: tote some extra sunscreen to your spot on the beach! It’s a good way to make friends…or to talk to the cutie the next towel over.

How To Make A Reverse French Braid

We’re always looking for a quick and simple hair DIY for the weekend! With Valentine’s Day just around the corner we’re opting for a reverse french braid.  We asked our studio hair stylist, Julie M. to give us the inside scoop. Follow her tips below to learn how to style a reverse french braid like a pro in no time!

Step 1: Untangle any knots to make braiding easier.

Step 2: Divide a section on top of your head into 3 equal strands.  You can start at the very top or if you have bangs or front pieces you want out, start a little further back leaving those out. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 3: To establish a secure braid, start by taking right section and go underneath the center strand and pull it to the middle. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 4: Now take the other end strand and go underneath to the middle. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 5: Do this one more time with the other end strand, going underneath to the middle. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 6: Now it’s time to start pulling additional hair from the sides. Like a typical french braid, start pulling equal slices of hair on each side of the head, adding it to the outer strand and taking it to the center…but instead of going overtop the center strand, take everything underneath.

Keep repeating from side to side, taking equal sections of hair from sides of head and taking it underneath the center strand.  This creates a braid that sits on top of the head rather than underneath.

Step 7: When you reach the nape of the neck, do a traditional three strand braid to the bottom. How To Make A Reverse French BraidHow To Make A Reverse French Braid

Step 8: Secure with elastic. How To Make A Reverse French Braid

How To Make A Waterfall Braid

Looking for a quick and simple Valentine’s Day hairdo? Look no further than the romantic waterfall braid. There is nothing to this braid if you’re already familiar with how to french braid your hair! We asked our studio hair stylist, Julie M. to give us the inside scoop. Follow her tips below to learn how to style the waterfall braid like a pro in no time!

 Step 1: Decide where you you want your braid to begin. Then, start with 1 – 1” section of hair and divide it into 3 strands.

Step 2: Start a basic three strand braid. Do this at least one full pass so that your braid is secure. How To Make A Watefall Braid

Step 3: Next, like a traditional french braid you’ll always be adding hair to that top strand, although the difference is at the bottom — instead of adding in hair to that strand, drop that piece. Once that piece is dropped, pick up a little hair in it’s place to continue the braid like a french. How To Make A Watefall Braid

Step 4: Moving along your head, keep adding hair to the top and always dropping out the bottom piece to create waterfall effect. How To Make A Watefall Braid How To Make A Watefall Braid How To Make A Watefall Braid

Step 5: When you reached the desired part where you’d like to stop, you can do a traditional three strand braid down to bottom, put a small elastic in first to secure, then bobby pin.  Or like shown below, just bobby pin in place.

There are different variations of this so play around and see what you like best! How To Make A Watefall Braid
