HOLIDAY HAIR: The Aura Braid

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


Stiff, structured styles don’t belong at special occasions anymore. Try this modern style from the Aquage team that features a knotted overlay accenting the fringe.

Try it: Start with a one-inch section on the left side of the head and divide into two subsections. Lightly spray Biomega Firm & Fabulous to polish the cuticle and maintain control. Cross the left section over the right, then pull through the center to create the first knot, combining the ends back into one section.Working across the fringe toward the right side of the head, take another one-inch section and repeat the knotting process until you reach the back center; then repeat on the left and secure both ends.
