Lauren Conrad and the lovely girls over at The Beauty Department just shared their secret tips for creating the perfect messy braid, and we just had to share it with our Minkettes. If you want to copy Lauren’s cute relaxed braid, simply divide your hair into three sections like you normally do. Loosely braid one of the sections, and then braid all three together, using the loose braid as one of the strands. All done! Now you Minkettes are ready to steal Lauren’s adorable hairdo – but don’t forget to check out The Beauty Department for more beauty tips and tricks.
