To get the beautiful braided nape-skimming braid crown from Christian Siriano's FW13 show, begin by blow drying hair with the Centrix Q-Zone Dryer.Create a straight part down the center of hair, all the way to neck with the tail-end of the Amped UP Teasing Brush. Smooth each side, then divide each side into two sections above the ear and smooth with the Friction Free Paddle Brush. Take one section on the right side and create a fishtail braid. Next, take the second section on the right side and create a traditional three-strand braid. Repeat on the left side, except switch fishtail and 3-strand braid opposite from right side. For the final step, take each braid and tuck into the opposite side where the sections meet. Secure with bobby pins.
Crown of Braids
What could be better than a romantic half-up half-down incorporating a crown of braids? Rodarte was on-point with their ethereal hair look this season. Start by blow drying with Centrix Q-Zone Dryer with additional reinforcement from the Power Booster attachment. Create loose texture around the head with the Friction Free 1¼" Curling Iron. Take a 3" section of hair from the temple, and pull away from hairline on each side. Braid both strands. Once secure, pull apart the knots to give more texture. Bring braids together to meet in the back of head and secure into each other in a messy bun using bobby pins.
