Curved and graceful, this multi-layered braid looks complex but it's actually quite simple says  Joico Educator Katie Bilovol of Reve Salon in Strongsville, OH. One of Biloval's“secret weapons” is Joico Texture Boost Dry Spray Wax.  “It gives the hair ‘grip’ and cohesion,” she explains, “which makes strands easier to work with when braiding.”
