Braids aren’t going anywhere! This fierce look was spotted at the Herve Leger Spring Summer 2016 Fashion Show at NYFW, but you can get the look right here, right now!
We always look forward to the clothes at Herve Leger‘s NYFW shows, but this season, we were really loving the braids coming down the runway on Sept. 12! Get the look with tips from the lead hairstylist from the show below.
Lubov Azria of Hervé Léger said about the hair inspiration: “It’s the 30th anniversary of Hervé Léger so we’re embracing a new direction with a more organic quality in our handwork and elements of nature incorporated into the collection so we wanted to collaborate with Orlando on a softer braid and really play with texture more than we have before.”
Lead hairstylist Orlando Pita used TRESemmé products to create the look: “It’s a new softer look for our Hervé Léger girl this season, she’s still creating a strong statement with the braid but we’ve played with making this more relaxed with purposely pulled out with loose pieces that frame her face and create beautiful movement when she walks.”
Herve Leger Runway — Hair Look How To
Here’s the how to:
“Step 1: Start by washing your hair using TRESemme Perfectly (un)Done Shampoo and Conditioner and towel dry.
Step 2: Apply Tresemme Runway Max The Volume Root Lifting Cream from the roots to ends and blow dry with a round bristle brush.
Step 3: Create a deep side part and then starting from the crown, begin French braiding down across the forehead. Feed hair from underneath so the braid is raised up and let a few strands of hair fall onto the forehead to create additional texture.
Step 4: Secure the braid into a low pony at the nape of the neck with a small elastic and pull over your shoulder.
Step 5: Finish the look by spraying Perfectly (un)Done Ultra Brushable Hold Hair Spray for light hold.”
