Boho Crown

Q&A with style creator, Alexandra Wilson
Hairstylist @ Hair Styling By Alexandra Eisemann in East Greenwich, RI

How would you describe this look?

This is a boho braided crown look. My favorite thing about it is how it looks intricate but it’s really just four braids pinned over each other. Super easy!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is ideal for longer hair and perfect for someone who wants a quick, 10-minute style.

To achieve bigger braids, use a volumizing powder. I personally love to use Puff Me from Design Me.

3D Pull-through Braid

Q&A with style creator, Regan Timothy
Stylist / Owner @ Beautyy By Regan in Tremonton, UT


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as a 3D pull through braid with some twists and curls. My favorite part is the 3D pull through braid because it’s not a braid you see very often!

Any advice for someone considering it?

This would be an ideal style for someone with medium to fine textured hair that can hold a curl. It can be easily accented with some hair jewelry or a ribbon.

This style would best suit someone with a fun, adventurous, and edgy personality/style. This look would hold up well for events such as prom, dances, photo shoots, and fashion shows. I will hold its own throughout the night and stand out in the crowd!

Classy Casual

Q&A with style creator, Danielle Broughton-Evans
Hairstylist @ Danielle Broughton-Evans Hair in Crewe, England


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as classy casual. My favorite thing about it is that it is wearable from day to night. It’s casual enough for work and classy enough for a night out.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This look is adaptable to all hair types but works best as a textured look on multi-tonal hair.

If you have silky hair and want to achieve this look, then I would advise drying in Redken Fashion Waves to create a little texture first.

Bohemian Rock

Q&A with style creator, Olivia Arendt
Stylist / Balayage Artist @ Scotia Salon in Marietta, GA


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as bohemian rock. It has a softness to it, but the hair rings give it some grit. My favorite thing is definitely the braids. I love the different textures they give.

Any advice for someone considering it?

The grey blonde color takes a lot of time and maintenance to keep the tone the same. It fades quickly, so invest in a salon-quality shampoo and conditioner to help maintain the color. The braid is a great way to add some texture and interest into your style.

Effortlessly Sexy & Touchable

Q&A with style creator, Sarah
Hairstylist / Colorist @ Marsha Nadalin Salon & Spa in Honolulu, HI


How would you describe this look?

I love how effortlessly sexy and touchable these curls look. You can tell she feels beautiful and you get the feeling she’ll be tossing her around all night on the dance floor!

Any advice for someone considering it?

You definitely need to take into account the client’s hair texture & ability to hold curl. This model has heavy, thick hair that is almost to her waist. I used a working spray and a 1 1/4-inch barrel iron to curl, then pinned the hair to cool for 45 minutes. I used a finishing spray after very lightly breaking up the curls. All of these steps ensured the style would last all night.

However, for another client with some natural curl and body, this look could be achieved much quicker. I think this look is universal for any a client wants to feel special without looking overdone.

Multi-Braided Updo

Q&A with style creator, Tracy
Stylist @ Red Cottage Salon & Spa in Long Grove, IL


How would you describe this look?

I would describe this look as multiple braids coming together to create a fun updo.

My favorite thing about it is all the texture that it creates and how it can last all day. It’s great for hot and humid times when you want your hair to stay up all day.

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you want a hairstyle that you won’t have to worry about, this look is ideal. It will hold all day and night! There are multiple braids in the updo, so you have to begin with a lot of hair. It just won’t have the same effect with thin hair.

Additionally, her color helps a lot because it shows all the detail in the style. For this style, I used Monat Styling Taffy near the roots to keep the flyaways down and give a finished look. I finished the style with Refinish Monat Hairspray for all day hold.

Elegant French Twist Ponytail

Q&A with style creator, Rachel Lusk
Hair & Make-up Artist @ Rachel Lusk Hair & Makeup in Bay Area, CA


How would you describe this look?

I describe this look as a combination of effortless and elegant.

My favorite thing about this style would be how simple and versatile it is. You can use it as an on-the-go style, or add some simple accessories and curls to create a beautiful look for bridesmaids. You can add texture or volume at the crown to make it messy and textured, or brush the style close to your head to keep it nice and sleek.

Any advice for someone considering it?

For a more voluminous look, I recommend blowing your hair out with a volumizing mousse before styling. To create a sleeker look, straighten the hair and apply a pomade around the hairline and crown area to keep it smooth and simple. If you would like to create more body in the ponytail, you can always add a few rows of clip-in hair extensions!

Braided Mohawk

Q&A with style creator, Sandra Joseph
Pureartist @ Pureology and Master Stylist @ Dani’s Hairloft in Pittsburgh, PA


How would you describe this look?

I just love this simple yet fun braid that can be worn out shopping, to a lunch out, or dressed up for an evening event. It also works well as a second-day style. After you take out the braid, you can expect to see a beautiful wavy look.

Because the braid is stacked on itself, it gives a higher Mohawk finish that is secure and can last a few days. Hot tip! Roll the ponytail into a bun then secure with a few pins for an evening out to dinner.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a look for the long-haired ladies, however, you can always attach a hair piece around a short ponytail to add length.

As far a hair texture goes, it really works on most hair types. It does work best with minimal layers though. The finished look is great with all hair colors and added highlights give the braid character.

To style this look, all you need is a volumizing mousse to add texture and grip. I recommend Pureology Rootlift because it can be used on damp or dry hair. Apply the product throughout, then blow dry the hair upside down. You can find further styling steps for this exact look on my Instagram page!

Dutch + Fishtail Braid into a Messy Bun

Q&A with style creator, Rachelle Edrozo
Special Event & Wedding Hair Stylist @ Alante Hair Design in El Cajon, CA


How would you describe this look?

This fun updo is a Dutch Braid with a fishtail braid into a low messy bun. It’s perfect for an outdoor wedding or an event where you want your hair to stay in place all day.

I used Redken Diamond Oil for added shine and to control flyaways. To finish, I sprayed the entire look with Hard Head hairspray by Bed Head. It is my favorite and never lets me down!

Any advice for someone considering it?

If you have a lot of hair or just like to have your hair up, this is the look for you. I love to braid blonde hair and her highlights look amazing.

This look is great for a night of dancing under the stars!

Braided Detail

Q&A with style creator, Twylla Jane
Redken Artist @ Lumos Nox at Sass Studios & Salon Suites in Naperville, IL


How would you describe this look?

This is a half updo with volume through the top, soft curls, and a side-swept braid detail.

My favorite thing about this look is that it is formal without being over the top. It works for any occasion from a date night to a black tie event to a wedding. To take the fancy up a notch, a decorative comb or clip could be placed above or below the braid.

Any advice for someone considering it?

This is a hairstyle that will live with you through the evening whether it’s a low key event or a night out on the town. If your hair curls easily, I love Redken Iron Shape 11 to keep curls soft and bouncy. If your hair falls flat easily, reach for something stronger like Redken Hot Sets 22. Spray it over sections, then quickly comb through to disperse the product. This will give the hair a softer result while keeping all the control.

For the half updo, volume at the top is creating by backcombing, then held in place with bobby pins. The bonus is that style may last until the next day if pinned well! Pin the hair up loosely and add a headband for a chill and chic bohemian vibe the next day.

Elegant Boho Chic

Q&A with style creator, Shaylean
Hairstylist @ Hair By Shay – Magnolia Avenue Salon in Larkspur, CA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is boho chic. I️ love how soft, textured and messy I️ was able to make it, yet it still looks elegant.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

I️ blow dried a workable hairspray into the hair. I then flat iron curled the whole head, curling away from the face. After lots of back combing, we used one ponytail and lots of bobby pins and hair pins to create the shape. We finished with a shine spray and hard hold hairspray.

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look was for a fundraiser gala and will work for any elegant events. This look is perfect for someone with a beautiful jawline and needed height. The hair can be fine, but there needs to be a lot of it, and it must be shoulder-length or longer.

Eye-Catching Braid

Q&A with style creator, Holly Smeltzer
Hairstylist / Make-up Artist @ Skye Salon & Spa in Grosse Pointe, MI


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is easy, fun and eye-catching. I love this style because it allows me to be creatively expressive. It also shows all the different tones in the hair, making it more visually interesting.

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

For this look I like to use a medium hold hairspray so the curls will stay in place. Also, using a flexible hold cream helps with flyaways and defines the curls. To top it off, I love a good shine spray!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

Braids and curls can easily be dressed up or down. This hairstyle is great for any occasion and any hair type.

Sophisticated Half Updo

Q&A with style creator, Aimee Beam
Licensed Cosmetologist & Founder @ Top Knots By Aimee, LLC in Philadelphia, PA


How would you describe this look and what is your favorite thing about it?

This look is a sophisticated half updo with tons of volume at the crown of the head. It’s a classic style for the #bighairdontcare lovers. It doesn’t matter if you have long, medium or short hair, this is a look that is très chic on all hair lengths and types.

I love that this look doesn’t take hours to create and is very versatile. The model in the photo is a bride on her wedding day, but this look can also be used for a holiday party, bachelorette party, cocktail party, wedding guest, and more!

What tips or products do you recommend to recreate this look?

To recreate this sophisticated half-up style, start with freshly blown out hair. I love my Babyliss Pro Volare V2 Mid-Size Hair Dryer, and I never blow out my hair without my Oribe Volumista root pump spray. Once your hair is completely dry and blown out, spray a TON of dry shampoo at the root of your hair. I love using Oribe Dry Texture Spray. Then, if you want your curls to last all night, I recommend using a 1 1/4-inch curling iron. I use Hot Tools Marcel irons. Curl and “set” the curls to your head until they are all cooled. Before I pin each curl to the head, I use Kenra Volume 25 hairspray on each curl.

Take down the curls. Then with a tail comb, section your hair into three sections: front left (from the top of your head to behind your left ear), front right (from the top of your head to behind your right ear), and then leave out the entire back section. To get the volume at the crown of your head and the overall “form” of the half-up style, start with a tiny horizontal section at the very top of your head. Backcomb it and add Big Sexy Powder Play. Repeat this step four or five more times until you have achieved the level of volume you would like for your half-up look.

With four bobby pins, secure your “poof” to the back of your head. If you need even more volume, use the pick side of your teasing comb to get even more lift. Moving to your front sections, use horizontal rows again and tease at least three rows on each side of your part at the crown of your head. Spray the entire section of hair with Oribe Dry Texture spray to make creating the twists even more easy.

The model uses a side part, but this look would also look amazing with the on-trend middle part. One side at a time, twist inward until you get a beautiful organic twist. Don’t pull the hair too tight to your head and pull apart each twist with your fingers to still create volume on the sides. One side at a time, lay each twist over the back section of the half-up style where you secured the original bobby pins to hide them. Check your style from the front to ensure all looks even with the twists on each side and give yourself a final hairspray with Kenra Volume 25 spray all over. Time to hit the town!

What type of client would you recommend this look for?

This look is so versatile! The model photographed was a bridal client. As a wedding hair expert, a lot of my clients select this look for their wedding day. It gives brides the flexibility of having their hair down, but still out of their face. It also gives my brides volume that is sure to last until the last song is played at their reception!

While this is the perfect look for a wedding, it is also a look I recommend for a holiday party, prom, bachelorette party, or even as a guest at a wedding. This is my top requested look for the past three years!
