While I thoroughly enjoy the runway fashions during New York Fashion Week, picking up useful beauty tips and advice is definitely appreciated. This is where the trends are set. This is where the best in the business are front and center creating looks on models for some of the most important and coveted designers. When these experts talk, I listen!
Justine Marjan TRESemme’ Global Stylist shared how to create the braid seen at the Creatures of Comfort Runway show. The look was all about a loose easy braid that many of us wish we knew how to create, here are the details! I also enjoy stopping by Justine’s Instagram for further hair inspiration.
STYLIST TIP: “After using a styling product, blow dry hair first using hot air to lock in the style then cold air to seal it”- Justine Marjan, TRESemmé Global Stylist
STEP 2: Create a center part and apply TRESemmé Extra Firm Control Mousse all over from root to tip, and work product throughout hair using your fingers
STEP 3: Take sections of hair into your hands and fold them up, 3 inches at a time until it hits your scalp. Blow dry each section using hot air to lock in the style, then cold air to seal it
STEP 4: Define the textured waves by using a flatiron to create an ‘S’ shape with various pieces of hair throughout the head
STEP 5: Spray roots with TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo for a matte, lived-in finish
STEP 6: Separate the front piece of hair on each side of the part and gather the remaining section to create a loose braid leaving the front pieces out for a slept-in look. Secure the braid with bobby pins leaving out 1-3 inches at the end for effortlessness
STEP 7: Complete the look by spraying TRESemmé TRES Two Firm Control Hairspray all over to keep hair in place
