For the Houghton Bride collection, designer Katharine Polk was inspired by the non-traditional bride, seeking vintage-inspired elegance. “The multiple braids with roughed-up texture and flowing wisps, bring a romantic modern twist to this bride,” says lead stylist and L’Oréal Professionnel Session Artist, Laura Polko.

To achieve the non-traditional braids, dry hair was first prepped with L’Oréal Professionnel Mousse Volupte by running fingers through locks. The hair was then rough-dried with a flat brush. These steps created a textured foundation to the hair. French braids were then created from the nape to the hairline on either side of the head. A third section of the hair was left to create fishtail braids at the ends.
