From icy blue dye jobs to matte statement lips, Kylie Jenner is never afraid to take a bold beauty risk. After all, she's made a billion-dollar living that began with her showing off playful makeup on Instagram, where she boasts 140 million followers and counting. So for this week's trip to Turks and Caicos to celebrate her new Kylie Skin Collection, Jenner inevitably tried out something new: rather than switching her hair to a cool shade of peach or adding a neon liner moment, the new mom arrived in the Caribbean with a set of extreme brunette lengths and a brilliant strategy for keeping them polished.
For a day at the beach yesterday, Jenner kept her longer than life lengths in order with a single tight braid. An alternative to flowing beach waves or a messy top knot, the plait offered the ultimate solution for keeping tangles at bay during those windy afternoons in the sand. Extending past her curves and practically skimming the backs of her knees, the style was paired with a one-piece suit and oversized gold hoop earrings. Later that evening, it acted as the ultimate going out accessory for a steamy island night.
Consider the set-it-and-forget-it braid the ultimate summer beauty strategy for hair that stays put—and looks good—all night long.
