Looking for a holiday-worthy braid that doesn’t take hours to create, that’s feminine and elegant and can withstand hours of fun? Alexandra Wilson (@alexandralee1016) ticks all the boxes with her dressed-up fishtail braid, adorned with velvet and crystals. Texture is critical for this party look, and Alexandra gets the job done with the help of two of her favorite powder stylers—Design.ME Puff.ME, the first ever volumizing spray in a pump, and Design.ME Hold.ME, a three-in-one spray you can adjust for soft, medium or firm hold.

See how Alexandra gets the look!
