This Is Us Beauty Eris Baker Knows How To Make Her Braids Pop!

This Is Us starlet Eris Baker shows us how to properly accessorize braids. The young actress has her hair in small cornrows that transition into individual braids. Each braid is layered with chunky red beads for a 70s-inspired look. Style Tip: Get similar beads from your local beauty supply or a craft store. You can add them to your hair by feeding a slew of (lightweight!) beads up one individual braid, then pull the ends of the hair up over the last bead and up to the braid. Wrap a covered elastic band around the ends and the braid to hold it together.
