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

At AEO, individual expression is at the core of our beliefs. Whether you’re celebrating your personal style through art, clothing or music, being you is what we love. One thing we can’t get enough of is music. Music helps sets the tone for our seasonal floor sets and helps create an in store ambiance unlike any other shopping experience. Check out our list of top 10 artists that we’re excited to jam out to in 2015 and get ready to hear them on future AEO playlists. Still reminiscing on 2014? Check out our favorite songs of last year here.

  1. Kill Them With Colour. Why are they on our list? With energetic sound and an upbeat vibe, they’ll have you dancing all night long.
  2. Leon Bridges. With similar sound to Sam Cooke, Leon’s soulful voice and smooth guitar will have you hooked in no time flat.
  3. Grace Mitchell. Don’t let her age fool you. At 16, Grace is taking the music world by storm. We’d be surprised if 2015 wasn’t her year.
  4. Lost Boy Crow. With a sound similar to Vampire Weekend and The Griswolds, Lost Boy Crow delivers dance-worthy sound that will have you playing them on repeat.
  5. BORNS. Taylor Swift is on the same page with us. She just featured BORNS on her Instagram account. This will be a big year for BORNS.
  6. Whilk and Misky. Think smooth vocals with addicting instrumentals. This duo delivers mysterious yet inviting sound.
  7. Ryn Weaver. Move over Charli XCX, there’s a new pop gal in town and she goes by Ryn. Grab your dance shoes, you’ll need them when you stream her music.
  8. Kacy Hill. This intense beauty delivers tracks that can be felt through the heart and soul.
  9. KLOE: Add this talented gal to your playlist asap. Her alluring voice mixed with tranquil sound will make you a fan for life.

How to wear the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle with Nomad En Vogue

Just when we thought our sexiest, skinniest fit couldn’t get any better, we went and made the Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle. Not only does it look like a jean and feel like a legging, it has a mid front 9″ rise, hits right at the ankle and features some great, destroyed details.

Our girl Chloe, blogger behind Nomad En Vogue, isn’t afraid to add a pop of color to her winter wardrobe with her new favorite pair of Mid-Rise Jegging Ankle below.

Meet Chloe:
Hi all! My name is Chloe.  I am a twenty-something year old southern girl, who is transitioning from being a college student into starting my career in the world of fashion and retail.  I have moved five times in my life and can’t call one place home.  I have an obsession with nude shoes, lip gloss, fro-yo and little black dresses.  I love making something old new again. I love “treasure hunting”.  I am a major animal lover, a pretty bad singer, and I don’t like going to the movie theater.  I’m a summer girl and my happy place is a lake on a hot summer day.

What Inspired Chloe’s Look:
I love a good transition piece in my wardrobe, and these jeggings are just that!  When you think mint green, you immediately think of it as a spring color, but oh how times have changed!  This pretty hue can definitely be worn year-round.  Already in the mood for Valentine’s Day, I decided to pair the jeggings with this adorable “Lovers Gonna Love” tee.  I added a floral overlay, which still works great for this time of the year because it’s black!  I also kept the look feeling “wintery” by pairing it with my favorite pair of black booties.  This outfit is fun, feminine, and a little bit boho.  I wore it running errands around town during the day, and then out for a dinner date that night. It made for the perfect Sunday FunDay look.
