We’re head-over-heels for the ethereal, romantic braided updo at the Creatures of the Wind A/W 2014 show at NYFW. It might not be for everyone, but it’s one of our favourite hair up styles at fashion week. Here’s how celebrity hairstylist Odile Gilbert created the look using Kerastase Paris.
1. On damp hair, Gilbert created a deep right side part and distributed Mousse Bouffante throughout, then applied Lift Vertige at the roots and blow-dried hair with her hands.
2. Once the hair was dry, Odile applied Touche Perfection for added softness and shine, followed by Powder Bluff for major texture.
3. Starting at the part, she created a large braid that comes down around the face, going towards the back right side of the head, spraying with Laque Dentelle for fullness as she went. She continued braiding with the rest of the length so the braid sits at the back of the head, securing with a clear elastic.
4. Using her fingers to lightly rough up the front of the braid and the top of the head for a slightly messy finish, she set the look by spraying more Laque Dentelle.
