The 8 Unique Braids I'm Loving (And How to Do Them)
Posted 07/20/11 at 05:15AM by Charli Schuler
Thank goodness a visit to Nine Zero Salon in West Hollywood, Calif., where you can get a super-stylish braid done at their braid bar (for as little as $25!) recently burst my no-can-do bubble. I was so inspired by their signature braids, I had to ask how to do them. Fortunately, Nine Zero One Salon celebrity stylists Florido Basallo and Amber Maynard were more than happy to demonstrate the steps.
I was also able to get braiding tips from celebrity stylist Marcus Francis, who caused a hubbub with the gorgeous braided style he did for Bryce Dallas Howard at the Cannes Film Festival. And after soaking in all this advice, I had a revelation: Those intimidating celebrity braids aren't so hard to do after all. In fact, with a little practice, you can probably do them with your eyes closed.
