Marissa Webb Runway — Hair & Makeup For Spring 2015 Show
Marissa tells HollywoodLife.com how to create the five-strand braid seen on the runway:
“Prep damp hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse and rough-dry the lengths with fingers for texture and lift. Finish blow-dry with a round brush at the hairline for a soft, airy perimeter of wisps.
Once hair is dry, create a deep side part on the right side of the head, then back-brush hair for extra volume and spray lightly with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hair Spray.
Divide hair into five equal strands at the nape of the neck and begin weaving the farthest right section over and under each part, working your way to the left.
Take the furthest left section of hair and weave over and under each part, working your way to the right.
Repeat steps four and five until braid is complete, leaving ends loose and fasten with a clear elastic.
Loosen braid by gently pulling apart and leave airy wisps to frame the face. Mist finished look with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hair Spray.”
A More Intricate Look
If you’re up for a challenge, you can try the more involved look also seen on the runway — a braided pompadour:
“Apply TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Mousse on damp hair and rough-dry ends for volume and texture. Finish blow-dry using a round brush to create fullness through the top of the head and the hairline.
Using the end of your comb, section off the center portion of the hair three-fourths of the way down and clip up.
Create a Dutch braid (in side out or reverse French braid) on both sides of the head using the loose hair, beginning at the temple and working your way to the nape of the neck. Braid the remaining lengths, leaving ends out, and fasten with a clear elastic.
Mist top section of hair with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hair Spray and lightly brush along the part.
Begin French braid, leaving additional volume at the front and base. Gather hair along the part, working 90 degrees from the head, and finish braiding lengths of the hair leaving ends out. Fasten with clear elastic.
Gather all three braids and twist into a low bun, leaving ends loose.
Brush the completed French braid upward creating a wind blown effect and spray with TRESemmé 24 Hour Body Hair Spray.”
