S/S 2011 THE HALO BRAID
As seen on the catwalk
A classic French plait started from the nape of the neck and was plaited from ear to ear and continued around the head in a circular motion clockwise.
Prep the hair using Front Row Big Hair Sculpting Mousse working it through the hair paying particular attention to the hairline.
Blow dry the hair upside down creating a slight flick at the ends as this will help when plaiting the hair. Spray Front Row Mirror Dazzle Shine Spray on your hair to add some shine and gently brush your hair.
Start with a classic french plait from the nape of the neck just above the left ear and then work your way around the hairline from left to right (you are braiding from ear to ear) ensure that you bring the hair up to the front of the head as you braid.
Apply a pea size amount of Front Row High Definition Crackle Wax into the palm of your hands and gently glide over the underneath of the plait. This will give definition and shine to the style as well as additional hold.
Continue to braid around the head in a circularmotion clockwise. When you reach the opposite point, start to pull in the isolated section of hair to continue where you started. Once you get to the end, finish the lengths and ends with a normal plait and secure with a clear hair band.
If you have any excess hair, fold this back on itself and tuck under the original plait to disguise where the plait starts and ends. Then hold in place with a couple of grips to secure the style.
Finish the look with a fine mist of Front Row Forever Lasting Hairspray and use your fingers to buff the front of the hairline to break up the plait and create a soft fluffy halo effect.
