Straight from the catwalks at NYFW 2013, Rodarte has another braid trend to try! The Princess braid makes me think of my misspent youth, but it is an easy look that isn’t too hard on your hair.
The trend with braids right now is too keep it looking “undone” with emphasis on texture. Odile Gilbert created the look for the runway by building texture while still keeping it polished.
Here is how he did it…
• Before drying the hair, Odile applied dollops of Frizz-Ease Curl Reviver Styling Mousse were applied to build texture while ensuring a smooth finish.
• After hair was blow-dried, a 2-inch iron was used to create loose bends. Frizz-Ease Moisture Barrier Hairspray was lightly misted over each section before it was wrapped around the iron to lock the waves in place.
• Next, the waves were brushed out to make the texture look more natural, and braids on both sides were connected in the back of the head with a rose made of the models’ own hair.
• To finish the look, a dime size of the Frizz-Ease Hair Serum Thermal Protection Formula was smoothed over random ends to make sure the overall effect was “undone” with a little polish.
