HOLIDAY HAIR: French Braid Twist

By Lauren Salapatek | 09/28/2012 2:16:00 PM


Kenra Professional educators suggest creating a loose French braid twist for a touch of holiday.

Try it: Blow dry damp hair away from the scalp and spritz Kenra Blow Dry Spray. Starting at the temporal region opposite the part, separate hair into two zones with diagonal sectioning just above the ear. Distrubute thermal spray on Zone 1 and apply hot rollers or a curling iron. Apply a small amount of paste to Zone 2 and loosely French braid starting just above the ear diagonally down to the occipital bone behind the opposite ear. Finger-comb Zone 1, using a samll amount of Creme Paste 20 and loosely tuck around the base of the French braid and pin. Twist the remaining length of braid in a circle and pin to fashion a loose bun. Finish the style with Volume Spray 25, and smooth over any unwanted flyaways.

A video or pictures of the back of the head would be very helpful to see what opposite the part, zone one, and zone two are supposed to look like! Thanks!!
