You Need to Try This Life-Changing Braid Hack


Braids are like the cat eye of hair: They're timeless, versatile, ultra-pretty… and really easy to mess up. But for those of us who avoid plaits either out of time constraints or to evade inevitable frustration, we've tracked down a genius hack that eliminates all of the above. In a video posted to her Facebook page earlier this week, beauty blogger Makeup Kimi takes a curious approach to a woven updo: She begins the braid underneath her chin, which we figured might have something to do with Halloween rapidly approaching. But then she promptly floors us by grabbing hold of her braid and flipping it backward over her face and the crown of her head, resulting in the most foolproof braided 'do we've ever encountered. Oh, and it takes all of 30 seconds.

But don't just take our word for it—see the tutorial in action below.
