PLL is one of the TV shows that I'm currently into. What I love most about this show are the characters' makeup, the nails and, of course, the hairstyles.
In last week's episode (Episode 18 - The Badass Seed), Ashley Benson, who plays Hanna Marin, wore this hairstyle. The main features of this do are the side braid that stops just above the ear, and the loose end waves. It's simple but I love it.
How to do this? Read on.
I'm not quite sure what kind of braid she's wearing but for simplicity's sake, let's just say that it's a French braid. A side French braid is just easy to do once you get the hang of it. Part a small front section of your hair sideways and French-braid it into a headband. (Read my post *here* if you want to learn how to create a braided headband.) Proceed with the French braid down to about 2 inches from the ear and continue with a regular braid until you reach the ends. To conceal the end of the braid, tuck it under the nearest section of loose hair and secure with a bobby pin. Leave the part of the braid just above the ear visible.
For the loose end waves, you can use a curling iron or hair rollers, preferably those that are around an inch in diameter. Or if you have a flat iron, that would work just fine if you know how to curl using it. Loosely curl the lower half of the hair, curling a small section of hair at a time.
What do you think? Are you going to try this look sometime?
