Elizabeth Banks At American Music Awards — Pretty Mini Braids
Celebrity Hairstylist Adir Abergel used Kenra Professional products on Elizabeth. He told HollywoodLife.com:
“The [Peter Pilotto] dress was very vibrant and playful, so we thought it would be great to give the over the shoulder side part a modern update with the braids.”
Elizabeth Banks’ Hair — The Exact How To
Here’s how to get the exact look.
Adir started with towel-dried hair by applying the Kenra Platinum Blow-Dry Spray from roots to the ends.
He used a dime size amount of the Kenra Platinum Blow Dry Serum from mid-shaft to the ends of the hair for a beautiful, shiny foundation.
Then, he made a deep side part and blow dried hair straight with a round brush. Next, he created a side-swept bang. Once hair was completely dry, he took a small section of hair at the part and braided a tiny cornrow all the way to the back of Elizabeth’s head. It was an “accessory” to the hair part!
On the other side of the cascading hair, Adir applied Kenra Platinum Texturizing Taffy 13 to “sleek” the front section of the hair back.
Adir then braided Elizabeth’s hair right behind the ear along the top of her neck. He tucked the end of the braid under the rest of her hair. He used bobby pins to secure the braid.
To set, he used Kenra PlatinumDry Texture Spray 6 for hold.
