Miami Swim Week 2016: Wildfox Runway Hair How-To

SHOW: WILDFOX
HAIR: UNITE Hair led by Riley McLachlan
HAIR INSPIRATION: Imagine Bridget Bardot visits Haight-Ashbury in 1969. With a nice voluminous crown, texture and pixie braids; this look combines a throwback to the 60’s-70’s along with beach waves and the fun of today!

STEP-BY-STEP:

  1. Prep hair with UNITE TEXTURIZA and 7SECONDS Glossing to act as a thermal protector
  2. Curl hair using a curling iron or UNITE Flat Iron. Pin curls, cool and allow to set.
  3. Release curls, mist with GO365 Hairspray on high.
  4. Create a diamond section on the crown of the head and dust with UNITE EXPANDA Dust.
  5. Lightly back-comb to create volume and shape on the crown
  6. Rake fingers through hair to loosen the waves a bit
  7. Braid a small pixie braid on either side of the central parting, temporarily pin in place.
  8. Braid another pixie braid parallel to the top one, about an inch underneath.
  9. Combine the ends of all four braids into a central, back braid.
  10. Mist with GO365 Hairspray on hold for extra hold and 7SECONDS Glossing for an overall shine.
