Candice Accola’s Headband Braid

When we’re racing out the door, we love to add a small headband braid for a more put-together look. The key is to french braid the small section on the hairline and then braid the rest down to line the face. Use a sea salt spray such as John Masters Organics Sea Mist Sea Salt Spray with Lavender ($16.50, beauty.com) to get those beachy waves.

Parting Ways: Get the Best Part for Your Face

Who knew something as simple as where you part your hair could totally change your look? Well, it’s true and we’ve got tips from the pros on which types of parts look best on which face shapes! Part-on us for making you look your prettiest…

THE DEEP SIDE

The deep side part goes a long way on style and sex appeal. Especially when worn with height in the crown, it’s very Brigitte Bardot. Jennifer Garner gives it a soft girlie appeal by keeping her waves natural,  her sweepy bangs heavy and topping it all off with the best accessory…a big smile!

LOOKS BEST ON: Long face shapes as it breaks up the length by distracting us with the heavy fringe.

HOT TIPS: Be sure to tell your stylist if you’d like to move your part around. This cut can be worn in the middle as well, as long as your stylist knows you’ll be doing both! Create the deep side part when hair is wet before styling.
