Braided roses are the hot new hair trend for summer… and they're SO pretty

Braided roses were created by Alison Valsamus, a stylist based in Connecticut, US, and they’re a fresh, modern uptake on the updo.

Alison has shared snaps of the floral-inspired trend on her Instagram page, which has more than 12,000 followers.

She braids mini roses into chic half-up half-down styles, and has turned one model’s candyfloss pink locks into a giant flower.

“To create these roses, I start with a small 3-strand braid rolled up to serve as the centermost part,” Alison told Allure.

“Next, I alternate between standard fishtails and Dutch fishtails pulled apart to create depth.

“I finish with a Dutch three-strand braid only pulled out on the outermost side to create the large petal feel of a rose in bloom.”

Alison, who shares tutorials on social media, advises working with small sections and braids to make sure you create multiple layers of depth.

She uses a light gel to prevent flyaways while braiding, as well as a texture spray before pulling apart.

But that isn't the first head-turning new hair trend.

Beauty fans have been experimenting with peach-coloured locks – and the results are mesmerising.

If you think peach hair is a bit too 'out there', these bonkers 60s hairdos will leave you in hysterics.

It's also not just hair that's getting a 2018 update… there's a new trend for your eyebrows, too.

And, are YOU making this common face mask mistake that could be ruining your skin?
