Runway Braid

At the Christian Siriano runway show, the models sported long, playful braids to go with the fabulous fashions. Hair stylist Odile Gilbert created the look and here is the step-by-step…

Hair is prepped with a styling mousse (Gilbert used TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Mousse), then blow-dried with a round brush to create volume.
Once hair is 80% dry, a diffuser attachments was added to the blow-dryer to add a bit of texture. Gilbert used the Dyson Supersonic Professional dryer, with the gentle drying nozzle.
Using a round brush to keep lengths smooth, secure hair into a ponytail three-quarters of the way up the head.
Leaving a section of hair out, braid the length of the ponytail all the way to just above the bottom.
Use the remaining section left out of braid to wrap around the base of the ponytail and pin in place.
