HOW TO: Nikki Providence Styles Florence WelchFlorence Welch of the British band Florence and the Machine was a stand out on stage and red carpet at the recent LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art) Art and Film Gala.

Welch’s hairstylist Nikki Providence created an adorned, braided updo with a Bohemian feel using a trio of Davines styling products. Here’s how Providence got the look:

Beginning with clean, damp hair, spray Davines Defining Texturizer at the roots for hold and volume and apply MELU Shield through the length of the hair to protect against thermal damage.

Blow dry hair with a round brush.

Apply a few pumps of Davines OI/Oil to the ends to condition and protect hair during braiding. The oil adds shine and a wonderful aroma without weight.

HOW TO: Nikki Providence Styles Florence WelchDivide the hair into two sections and create a braid on each side, beginning just above the ear.

Wrap each braid around the front of the head and secure with pins.

To add to the glam effect, Providence wove several fine gold necklaces into the hair.
