THE DOUBLE SHOT BRAID

Like a double shot of espresso, this braided look packs a punch and will carry you from day to night.

SUPPLIES:

  • A teasing comb
  • 2 clear elastic bands
  • Hair pins (if needed for loose layers)
  • Root lifting spray (if desired)
  • Setting spray

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Lightly apply root-lifting spray throughout the hair. Part hair into two sections down the middle of the scalp. Tease each side of hair with a teasing comb to create volume (if necessary) before you begin braiding.
  2. Create a 3-D braid (inverted french braid) on each side of the head and secure with an elastic band on each end. You’ll want to braid from underneath (hence the 3-D effect) to make each braid pop.
  3. Start pulling at the sides of each braid to make them as thick looking as possible. This is called pancaking the braid.
  4. Hold the finished style with setting spray.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Apply texture spray throughout the hair, tease and collect all strands into a high ponytail.
  2. Once you’ve gathered your hair into a ponytail, swirl hair around to form a fluffy, round bun.
  3. The trick with this style is to play up hair’s natural organic texture, so don’t be afraid to pull up strands in the front to create natural hair lift. Pull out strands from your bun if a messier look is desired.
  4. Set with finishing spray.

THE WINK WINK BRAID

DIRECTIONS:

    1. Apply texture spray throughout the hair. Part the hair into two sections at the crown.
    2. Starting at the back, at one side of your head, create a thick 3-D French braid at the bottom section of your hair. Pancake it to widen the braid and create dimension and texture. Stop grabbing hair once you reach your ear area—you will use the front portion of your hair for your second braid.
    3. Create your second (front braid) by doing a fishtail braid, leaving the ends loose and holding strands in place by just teasing the ends. It’s that simple and that fabulous!
    4. Set your look with finishing spray.
