Update a classic ponytail with a bit of braiding – a hot trend for autumn/ winter 2015. Our Creative Director Kieron Fowles talks you through each step to achieve this party perfect hairstyle…
(Follow steps across from left-to-right along each line)
STEP 1: Prep damp hair with a heat protect spray such as EIMI Thermal Image before blow drying smooth. Divide hair into a strong centre part and pin one side out of the way.
STEP 3: Take a 2 inch section from the front of one side and secure with a hair tie at the base to form a mini ponytail.
STEP 4: Take a second, diagonal section from behind the first and secure it in the same way.
STEP 5: Split the first ponytail into two and loop the second forward and through the split. Pull the two sections back together and secure with a hair tie.
STEP 6: Split the ponytail into two again and bring the back section through the middle.
STEP 7: Create a fresh ponytail behind the others, split into two and repeat the process.
STEP 8: Continue the split and loop technique right down the length of your hair, bringing in sections of hair from underneath as you go. Secure the final section with a hair tie and repeat the process (starting from step two) on the other side.
STEP 9: Once both loop braids are complete, cross them over each other and continue twisting down to the ends. Gently tease out the braids once finished to add lift to the style. Seal with a mist of EIMI Stay Styled hairspray.
