Celebrity Hairstylist Marcia Hamilton created this stunning look for Jada Pinkett Smith at the 3rd Annual Essence Black Women In Hollywood Luncheon last week.
Create the Braid - Make a part, starting from behind the left ear to the right ear. Then, create a deep right-side part leaving out the lesser hair. Gather the front section of hair and tease the root to create texture and volume. IT&LY Hairfashion Purity Design Pure Texture Volumizing Spray at the root area for hold. Braid the hair on the scalp from right to left all the way to the end.
Make a Pony - Brush the rest of the hair into a high pony above the ears and secure with a holder. Apply H2pro Silk 1 Minute Thermal Hair Treatment on the pony and divide into small sections. Curl into spirals and apply a light shine serum to your hands and separate spirals. Then, spray with a texturizing mist for added texture and a bit of roughness.
Shape the Pony - Take the end of the braid and pin it to the part on the scalp. Then take a bobby pin with the open end, swoop into the curled pony, lift and pin to scalp. This creates a bit of lift and added structure, repeat until you're happy with the shape. Utilize a light wax spray for shine and texture and finish with White Sands Infinity Finishing Spray for lasting hold.
