Special-occasion season is nearly upon us, and the best thing you can do for yourself is arm yourself with styles that impress your client but don't take too much time on your part.

Braided styles are still very much trending, and aside from being of-the-moment, they don't take a million bobby pins that your client will have to dig out at the end of the night, and heat styling is minimal to none. Everybody wins!

Kayla Juneau of Bloom Hair Lounge in Spartanburg, South Carolina, created this romantic, time-efficient updo with Fave4 products and finished with a Pink Pewter embellished headband. Take a look at the steps and GoPro video from Juneau's viewpoint below!


STEP 1: Loosely curl hair, then spray Fave4 Texture Takeover liberally to build dramatic texture and volume.

STEP 2: Create an off-center part. Take a 2-inch section and create a small Dutch braid on each side of the head.

STEP 3: Leave small strands out around the face for an undone, romantic feel.

STEP 4: Stretch each braid to max fullness to emphasize texture and multi-dimensionality. 

STEP 5: Once both braids are finished, place Pink Pewter headband in front of braids but behind face-framing strands.

STEP 6: Gather remaining hair and separate into two sections. Use elastic band to work hair over and into a rolled updo, securing with the band as you work.

STEP 7: Join braids in back and secure over band.

STEP 8: Finish with Fave4 Flex Reflect for lightweight control and enhanced shine.
