Friday Favorite

We all have those days when our bangs drive us crazy!  Today I am sharing my favorite hairstyle to wear when I just need my bangs and hair out of my face but still want my hair to look pretty and put together. It's seriously so simple and everytime I wear it I am shocked with how many compliments I get!

1) Take the top section of your bangs or your first layer and back comb generously with a teasing brush or a fine tooth comb.
2) Lightly comb out the backcombing and brush back to shape into a pompadour. 
3) Once you like your shape use about 3-4 bobby pins to secure your cute pouf. (I usually make sure my pouf is at its highest point closer to the crown area of my head)
4)Start a French braid along the side right by the ear.
5) Add hair from the opposite side by taking horizontal sections and bringing them around to the front where the braid is located.
6) Continue taking even sections to add to both sides of the braid, making sure the braid remains located along the hairline.
7) Once you have placed all the loose hair into the braid, continue braiding the tail and secure with a  rubber band.
8) Gently pull out sections of the braid and any pieces around your face to loosen it to your desired look.
9) Spray the pompadour and braid with finishing spray so it will last all day! My favorite hairspray is Control Addict by Reken.
