Beauty Dare: NYFW Runway to Reality
Can we rip off a high-fashion runway look? Yes. We. Can.
Step 1: Create an exaggerated side part on one side of your head. From there, zig-zag the part vertically down the center all the way to the nape of your neck.
Step 2: Clip the hair on the side of your part off to the side. On the other side of your hair, create another zig-zag part horizontally from the top of your crown to behind your ear.
Step 3: Create two ponytails on either side of your new zig-zag part, securing at the root with a clear elastic. Start the first fishtail braid right above your ear at eye level and braid tightly from the root to the ends of your hair. Secure the end with a clear elastic. Repeat this braid on the second section of hair, starting at the nape of your neck and braiding to the ends.
Step 4: Unclip the other side of your hair. Create a third ponytail starting at the nape of your neck, securing at the root with a clear elastic. Again, tightly fishtail braid to the end and secure with a clear elastic.
Step 5: Tug on all three braids to loosen them, creating a messy, frizzy-like texture. Next, twist the braids at the base and wrap them over the front of your head about 2-3 inches from your hairline. Use multiple bobby pins to secure, then snip and remove the clear elastics (as desired).
Step 6: Tug on the style evenly to add a messy, unkempt look, then finish with a strong-hold hairspray like Sexy Hair Big Sexy Hair Spray & Stay Intense Hold Hairspray, $17.95.
