We’re loving Lea Michele’s messy braid as seen at yesterday’s FEED USA and Target party in Brooklyn – such a fun hairstyle for medium to long hair!

Lea posted a close-up of her braid on Instagram, writing: “Loving my messy braid tonight by Sarah Potempa! #NYC”

Here’s how to get the look in 4 easy steps:

1. Use the Sarah Potempa Beachwaver to curl your hair.

2. After curling, apply a sea salt hair spray to add texture, volume and hold.

3. Pull your hair to one side and braid a normal braid. After you have secured your normal braid in place, tug on random sections of the braid, allowing them to look relaxed and messy. Continue tugging until you are satisfied with the look.

4. Finish the hairstyle with hairspray to hold it all in place.
