SOPHISTICATE’S BLOG: Braided Upsweep


mainSummer is here and Pravana and Sophisticate’s Hairstyle Guide are showing you how to achieve another hot look for the season — a braided upsweep that looks intricate, but is actually easy to create. Here’s the step-by-step…

tools

1-21. Begin with straight, dry hair.

2. Apply NEVO Detail Shine & Define Polish to palms. Have your client lean their head all the way back. Smooth and contain all the hair back to create a sleek, high ponytail. NEVO Detail immediately smoothes and holds hair in place while adding extreme shine, the perfect tool when creating ponytails.

3-43. Divide the ponytail in half.

4. Braid each half of the ponytail.

5-65. Melt NEVO Lived-In in palms to add texture and grit to the braids. With product in hand, pinch and separate each braid to loosen.

6. Pull the first braid forward, across the parietal ridge and front hairline. Pin to secure.

7-87. Pull the second braid forward, across the parietal ridge and just behind the first braid.  Pin to secure.

8. Checking the balance, pin to secure. With a bristle brush, lightly brush loose pieces out around the front-side hairline using a bristle brush to deconstruct the crown of braids.
