We took a stroll around the show floor at America’s Beauty Show in Chicago today and we came across this prom/bridesmaid/special occasion updo that we just had to stop and watch on the Aquage stage.

To create the look, this educator created a 2-strand French fishtail braid starting at the crown of the head. Then, the braid was pushed forward and elevated into a pompadour look. The tail of the braid was wrapped from side to side to give the ponytail extra pizzazz. To finish, the tail of the ponytail was curled, then deconstructed and backcombed with the fingers.
