Olivia Culpo’s CFDA Awards Hair & Makeup — Gorgeous Braided Bun
When hair is dry, use Paul Mitchell Dry Wax around the hairline, then comb through with a fine-toothed comb.
Create a clean center part, then gather hair at the back of the head into a sleek ponytail, spraying MarulaOil Rare Oil Perfecting Hairspray on the brush as you gather hair back.
Attach a ponytail extension then split it into two braids.
Wrap each braid around each other into a knot and secure with small bobby pins and French pins.
Finish with a mist of MarulaOil Rare Oil Perfecting Hairspray and a small wooden brush to comb away any stray hairs.
PRO TIP: Use a needle and thread to sew in the necklace to ensure the look stays in place all night long.”
