How To: Spring Break Hair

Heading to a pool party or a day on the beach? This no-fuss look will stay in place all day so you don’t have to!

Step 1: Brush all of your hair to the back.

Step 2: Separate two side pieces from the front and twist both of them inward.

Step 3: Tie the two strands together in a knot, keeping them separate from the rest of your hair.

Step 4: Starting with either the left or right section, take a small strand of hair from one of the outer edges, and cross it over the opposite section of hair. Once you’ve added this strand to the other section, forget about it! You will always be working with just two sections, not three.

Step 5: Keep repeating this process from side to side until you reach the end.  As you work down, you can take smaller sections of hair if you want a tighter braid. Make sure you’re always taking strands from the outer edges.

Step 6: Tie an elastic band around the bottom, then gently pull the hair from the braid to make it a little wider.

Step 7: Give it a spritz of hairspray to set everything in place.

Step 8: Add flowers, starting from the outside and working in. Secure them by pulling the stems through your braid.

New Year, New You

It’s a new year.  Aerie girl The Cake by Hannah  plans to master baking. What will you do with it?

New Year, New You “I am rocking my favorite Aerie sweater and satin pants with this awesome bralette to kick off my year at mastering baking. Nothing gets me motivated like a good pair of panties (to each her own, right?!) This bralette really does make me feel sassy and on top of the world. These pants are so cozy, and you can wear any of these items for lounging straight to the street. These are the best kind of items to purchase for your wardrobe- versatile, cute, and #AerieREAL.”
