It’s tennis time! The US Open is about to invade NYC, but the players have arrived early! Maria Sharapova rocked a gorgeous fishtail updo at the opening of her new candy store in NYC on August 25. Get her exact hairstyle below!
Tennis star Maria Sharapova looked amazing at the Sugarpova pop-up store opening at Bloomingdale’s in New York City on August 25. Her braided updo was done by one of our fave hairstylists — get the step by step right here!
Sarah Potempa, inventor of the Beachwaver, created this look and broke it down for HollywoodLife.com:
“Step 1) Create a clean side part and add a flexible styling product, like Aussie’s Mousse + Leave-In conditioner. Blow dry upwards to add volume and polish ends with the Sarah Potempa On Set Styling Brush.
Step 2) Smooth the roots to the ends with the Sarah Potempa Ceramic Styling Iron + Blow out attachments to add volume and movement to the right side.
3) On the clean, tighter side, create a dutch french fishtail by separating hair in two pieces. Then take a small section from the left, go under and add it to the right. Continue to fishtail by taking a small section from the right, go under and add it to the left. Continue all the way down, adding here from the root each time. Secure with a clear elastic.
Step 4) Take the other side (with the bang layer left out) and create a loose fishtail.
Step 5) Bobby pin the two fishtails up and around each other. Finish by spraying a volumizing hairspray!”
