Braided Accent


Whether for a special occasion or just a Friday night with friends, here’s a gorgeous (and a bit edgy!) look by  Anna Peters, Sam Villa ArTeam. The stylist shares how to create the loose textured braid…

1.      Create tons of volume and control with the Sam Villa Signature Series Textur Professional Texturizing Iron. Start at the nape and work up taking thin slices of hair.  Spray each section with a heat protectant spray and gently squeeze the iron down the strands, throughout the entire head. A gentle squeeze keeps the texture subtle, while providing volume and control.

2.      Brush through hair to soften texture. Working off a center part, drop out a 2” section in the front hairline to the top of ear and isolate with clips.

3.      With a finishing brush, gently smooth the surface of hair back into a low ponytail at the nape of neck; pinch and pull to create full volume through crown. Secure with elastic.

4.      Smooth back the front two drop out sections and flatten along the head toward the back ponytail; wrap around elastic and pin to secure.

5.      Gently pull out face-framing strands and curl loosely. Create large, loose curls in ponytail as well.

6.      Take a 2” wide section from ponytail and prep with Redken Braid Aid 03. Create a loose fishtail braid and secure with elastic. Pull either side of braid gently to blouse.
