Sophisticate’s Blog:         Hungry For Braids!

Screen shot 2013-11-20 at 4.20.11 PM

Is it Friday yet? Because we really want it to be Friday…The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be in theaters and we’ll be in the front row, watching every move Peeta and Katniss make–and watching every amazing hair profile that flashes larger than life!

But since it’s not Friday yet, we’ll have to make do with pretending to be our own Katniss, complete with a competition-worthy braid. But wait! Do we know how to make a braid? Yes, we do! Because we’ve read the February issue of Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide, where Xena Parsons of Xena’s Beauty Company in New York, NY, gives us step-by-step instructions for how to make the perfect plait. If you want to create your own fab braid, pick up a copy of the issue, and follow a few of Xena’s tips right here…

  • “If you just reverse the motion and instead of putting the hair over, you put it under, you get a fuller braid.”
  • “Put a little mousse or gel in the hair to give it some weight so the braid doesn’t slip out.”
  • “If your hair is fine you probably want to do a single braid. If the hair is thick, you can choose a style that has multiple braids.”
  • See you at the movies!
