Split hair down the middle and part out a section around the temple of the head to be used for this top braid.

  • Place a light gel or serum like Shu Uemura’s Touch of Gloss on the crown for shine.
  • Then create an inverted braid along the head on both sides and connect in the back.
  • Prep the remaining hair with Oribe’s Dry Texture Spray.
  • Start a Waterfall Braid along the head on both sides and connect with the first braid.

And you’re done! Send us a pic of your efforts – we’re dying to see how you got on!
