If there is one thing I am constantly in need of, it is hair elastics. It is one of those things that you have in every handbag and in every drawer yet you always need more. Am I right?

Then you can keep both of your essentials on hand at all times!

We were tasked with creating a hair tutorial that uses hair elastics from one of our favorite brands; Goody. Being the hair novice that I am, I had to rope in Product Girl Jr. for a little assistance. Kayla and I broke out some hair chalk, starting braiding and we came up with a look that I think is fun for the end of summer or even the first few days of school.

Here’s how we created this look:

  • Start by parting your hair to the side then section your hair into three even pieces.
    For a little something extra, we added a little of hair chalk into each section. To make the color pop, use a pomade before you add the color to your hair.
  • Braid each section so that you have three separate braids. We used two different types of elastics, some smaller Goody hair elastics for each section, then a larger, stronger Goody hair elastic for the end braid.
  • Finally, take each section’s braid and braid that into one larger braid securing it with a Goody hair elastic. We went with pink since we use some pink hair chalk.

And there you have it! We’ve been rocking braids non-stop this summer and this look is perfect for those hot summer days. To transition from day to evening, just undo your braids and you’re left with gorgeous, beachy waves.
