Pinterest has been giving us hope that we can do our own hair and pull off these amazing looks. And just last week, I attended a class at goldplaited in Chicago that taught me some great and easy looks that I can pull off myself. The key word being easy. But what about those amazing looks only a stylist can provide? Jenny Balding, Cutler/Redken Stylist, provides us with this easy to do but intricate looking hair style. Recreate this runway worthy look (hint, this is the real life version of this Custo Barcelona look) with these 4 surprisingly easy steps.
- Start by blow drying hair straight and finishing with a flat iron to get an ultra sleek look. Be sure to use a heat protectant spray or creme to prevent hair damage.
- Section out hair like you would a mohawk of no more than 2″ ending at the nape of the neck.
- Spray this small section with dry shampoo to create texture in the hair.
- Create a reverse french braid from the hairline to the nape and secure with a clear small band.
While this look does have some edge to it, the soft makeup and touch of color only to the lips works well to make this the perfect finish to any look this summer. What do you guys think?
