Full Plait :: Villa prepped the hair with a texturizing spray, then microcrimped the whole head with the Sam Villa Textur Professional Texturizing iron. Determine a side part and create a Waterfall braid working around top of the head. Secure the lengths at mid ear. Rouche to create a full look.

Clean Plait :: Following the same prep as in “Full Plait,” Villa determined a side part and created a Waterfall braid working around the top of the head. The remaining hair is gathered into a ponytail and bubbles are created for added volume with attitude.

Right on trend with texture and braids, Sam Villa, educator and manufacturer, who has developed a professional line of tools and shears, created two whimsical looks for MODERN SALON’s Artist Session using the Texture iron microcrimper, braided adornments and imagination.

“What is most loved about a braided headband is its versatility,” says Villa, who is also a Redken educator. “These techniques are not new, but are timeless. The braid itself can be woven together as tightly or loosely as you wish, or paired with a ponytail of bubbles for added character. No matter how it is achieved, the braided headband style remains a much-loved classic among women with all types of hair.”
