Stylist Sarah Lewis (@sarahshairlewis) of Escape Salon in Claremont, California created this floral piece of hair art. 

The client's color was already done. The base is 3N Pravana. “I had done a full balayage on her before and lifted her with Wella Color Touch Sunlights and toned her with Redken 7nb Shades EQ,” Lewis said.

BRAID STYLE PREP:
STEP 1: “I blew her hair dry using Keratage Shine Booster Control Cream.”
STEP 2: Used Keratage Keratin Thermal Protection Spray (“which adds amazing shine!”) and then straightened hair.

FOR THE BRAID:
STEP 1: “I sectioned off the hair above the ears and clipped it aside.”
STEP 2: Use small amount of Suavecita Pomade. “I rubbed it into my hands and along the section I was going to do a fishtail braid.”
STEP 3: “I then braided the top section into a three strand braid and pulled out the edges to fatten it.”
STEP 4: Rolled up the braid and pinned it.
STEP 5: “Any flyaway, I used a rattail comb and Kendra #8 hairspray to tuck them in.”
