NIcci Welsh is the Lead Educator of International Training for Oribe. She tours the world sharing her expertise, while also executing her looks on models for ad campaigns as well as high fashion, editorial, film, television and celebrity work.

Recently, Welsh was in town for NYFW and took some time to host a one-day hands-on intensive workshop for 20 advanced braiders where she shared her insider tips and techniques for innovative finishes. Held at the Canoe Studios on Manhattan's West Side overlooking the Hudson River, Welsh chose to kick off the workshop by demonstrating her "Pipe Braid" - a modern silhouette that is interesting and fun to create.

In this video tutorial, Welsh demonstrates the steps needed to create the Pipe Braid. Make sure to stick through to the end to see how to take it down:
