Jennifer Hudson For a thick, on-trend side braid, start by applying a small amount of hair wax like Aveda Light Elements Defining Whip, $24 to palms and rub hands together to emulsify. Work the product evenly through dry hair with fingertips. Use a comb to tease the bottom half of your hair to create the gritty texture and volume then pull hair to one side and begin braiding. Secure with an elastic and then use your hands to loosen up the braid for that messy-in-a-good way look, says Pohl.
