REGAL HALO BRAID

•Start by running a shine serum or oil through your hair, taming any fly aways. Kerastase Cristalliste Cristal Sculpt Dual Sculpting Serum is leave in and works great. It also leaves your hair looking shiny and healthy!

• Use clean sections with a comb down the middle all the way down to your neck.

•Braid hair in two braids and secure with elastic. 

•Take the left braid and cross it over your head aligning with your the opposite ear and secure with bobby pins

•Next take the right braid and cross it over on top of the other braid. weaving the end into the the braid underneath it. 

•You want to give the illusion that it is one braid so make sure you use similar bobby pins to secure the braids together

DUCTH BRAID BUN

•Start by parting your hair with a comb down the middle all the way down to your neck. 

•Apply a product through out the hair that will give you grip. I love to use either Sachajuan or Aveedo hair wax. 

•The trick is to braid along the natural curve of your head

• Using clean sections french braid each side and secure with a clear rubber band. 

•Twist the bottom of the braids up into a bun and secure with bobby pins that are similar color to your haircolor to look effortlessly done

•To tame any fly aways, you can finish with a styling wax or hair spray, my go to is Oribe finishing spray because it doesn’t leave the hair hard or crispy!
