Dedicated Post: Your Best Girls Night Out Hair for Your #BestNightEver – The Goddess Braid

Ok, gals, it’s time for another Girls Night Out tip sheet and this time it’s on – squee! – hair and makeup. As in, how to look smoking hot for a night out with your besties and stay that way no matter what the night may bring.

First, let’s discuss hairstyles when leaving your home. First, you have to start with strong, beautiful hair, which you get by using CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY™ regularly. But be sure to repeat the process so you can ensure you have your best hair for you Best Night Ever that simply shines.

Now, let’s talk about how to turn up the heat on your look without using heat on your hair. Gals, I am all about wet styling in the summer. It’s easy, fast and – let’s face it – who wants to work up a sweat in the bathroom before you have to get cute? NOT ME. Hence, here is a summer style that works for ALL hair types. Ladies, behold the Goddess Braid.

First, secure your hair in a low ponytail or braided chignon (braid the ponytail, wrap it around itself, then secure) at the nape of your neck, leaving the front 1/3 of your hair across the front loose. Part the remaining hair into two sections from one ear to the other. Braid one section from one ear to the other ear, then braid the remaining section in the same manner but start from the opposite side so the braids run in different directions. Secure them both around the ponytail OR underneath the chignon with tonal hair pins. Lightly spray and you’ve got a gorgeous red carpet look that will last through dinner and dancing all night!


Ta-da. :)

But wait, there’s more! If you suddenly feel the need to get WILD later, let the braids loose at your final destination for untamed waves! They’ll look amazing for a night of dancing or for catching the eye of that hottie across the room. This trick is FOOL PROOF, gals. Try it! Don’t forget to carry an extra hair elastic, bobby pins and a teeny tiny can of hairspray for extra oomph later.

Finally, you’ve got to plan what to eat. Gals, it’s my firm stance that you shouldn’t watch what you eat as much as you should watch WHERE you eat (I don’t like to risk my look with messy foods). I suggest a sexy Spanish restaurant like Pipa in NYC, where you can share tapas and sangria, flirt with the gorgeous waiters, then hit the dance floor!
