"Beauty hack alert"

Beauty Crew Digital Content Editor / March 18 2020

Sky-high ponytails have long been regarded as one of the most effective celebrity hairstyling tricks for achieving an instant, surgery-free facelift.

But, Australian model and media personality Rebecca Judd has an even better hack that allows you to attain the same lifted look while wearing your hair down...

Braiding taut micro plaits above the ears to lift and tighten the skin around the eyes and forehead - no surgery required!

"What [hair and makeup artist Chantelle Baker] has done is tiny little braids, really tight, pulled back and pinned on each side and tied at the back. The braids pull my eyes back and give that 'fox eye' effect," says Bec in an Instagram story.

“To get that effect, people have been shaving off the ends of their eyebrows and drawing them a little bit wider,” Bec explains, referencing the current ‘fox eye’ trend.

“People are also getting their eyes threaded and brow lifts. But [the braid method] doesn't involve any surgery or shaving off your eyebrows,” says Bec.


Australian hairstylist Kevin Murphy also loves this trick. He became a fan of it after learning Barbra Streisand uses it, too! Check out Kevin's tips on achieving the faux facelift look here.
