GET THE LOOK WITH OUR STYLING ESSENTIALS
STEP 1: Start out with freshly washed and air-dried hair prior to braiding. Begin by sectioning and drawing a straight line across the bottom of the head to form the first row of triangles.
STEP 2: To prep her hair for braiding, apply three styling products – first, the brilliant™ styling creme, then the control paste™, and finally the retexturing gel – to build enough grip and hold to keep the extensions securely in place and prevent frizz.
STEP 3: Once the sectioning process is complete and each section tied off with a rubber band, begin braiding with burgundy extensions (using five packs in total, each one cut in half), adding a touch of control paste™ before banding off the ends.
STEP 4: The final look is completed by cutting each braid at bob length until the style is even length all the way around.
