Hot Trend: Braids

Submitted by on February 15, 2014 – 1:45 pm


Braids were huge on the runway from Kenneth Cole, VPL, Mara Hoffman and our absolute fave Rebecca Minkoff. The hair look was inspired by strong Mexican Women, particularly Frida Kahlo, it’s so easy to recreate, yet looks like it would take forever.
For braid inspiration visit our Pintrest page.
·  Prep damp hair with Guts Mousse by Redken and rough dry
·  Create a messy zig-zag side part, from the hairline to the center of the nape and clip to separate
·  From the heavier side of the part take another zig-zag section behind the ear and clip, to create three separate sections
·  Back brush hair for texture and create a ponytail in each section, positioned behind the ear
·  Tease lengths of hair and spray lightly with Redken’s 28 Workhard finishing spray
·  Create a 4-strand braid with each ponytail and fasten with an elastic
·  Wrap braids around the top of the head, tucking the end of the braids under and fasten with bobby pins
·  Finish with Redken’s Powder Refresh for a matte undone look
