GET THE LOOK

1

Start with day 2 hair for added grip and texture.

2

List Mist Redken Beach Envy Volume Wave Aid all over hair to give it a beachy texture and refresh waves.

3

Create a side part and lightly fingercomb through the hair to get out any tangles.

4

Start with the front section on the thicker side of the part and begin the crown braid by splitting a small section into 3 smaller sections and crossing them over each other in a braid.

5

Pull in additional sections as you move down the length of the hair and continue the braid.

6

Take the braid to the nap of the neck and secure the braid and the remainder of the hair into a low side ponytail, using a clear elastic.

7

Roll the lengths of the ponytail into a side bun. Secure it with bobby pins until it feels held in place.

8

Gently pull the bun to create a messy look.

9

Use Redken Powder Grip 03 mattifying hair powder to amp up the volume and give the hair even more texture. Apply it to the braid and the bun.

10

Create a chunkier braid by pulling the braid gently to give it a fuller appearance.

Secure the look with Redken Control Addict 28 high hold hairspray.
