With both festival and wedding seasons fast approaching, it's time to ramp up your braiding skills. The versatility of braids have made them a mainstay in upstyling, and we don't see that changing any time soon.
Pravana Guest Artist Lara C. Kay created an edgy, side Dutch braid with tie-dye color from Danny Moon, Pravana guest artist and celebrity stylist. The placement of the color makes for a peekaboo effect in the braid and results in both the color and the style being amplified.
