Side Slicked Braided Twist: NYFW Naeem Khan F/W 2018

Go in on the volume and don't look back.

It’s all about volume backstage at Naeem Khan’s F/W 2018 show. TRESemmé NYFW stylist Odile Gilbert used both TRESemmé classics and the newest additions to the collection to create volume and lasting hold for each model’s braided twist style. The volume at the front is dramatic and the height of the style is almost outrageous—in an on-trend, high fashion way, of course. The look finishes off with a twist of braids pinned at the back for additional texture and dimension.

“It’s important that the sides of the hair are slicked back,” says Gilbert, “And that the heightened part of the bouffant is twisted in a shell-like coil to finish off the look.” Read on to learn how to create this dramatic braided twist style in under 10 minutes:

Step 1: Start by washing your hair with a hydrating shampoo and conditioner like TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Shampoo and TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Conditioner. This duo will help minimize frizz.

Step 2: Massage the roots with TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Mousse. This will give your hair an extra dose of volume and texture. Then section off your hair and blow dry it using the nozzle attachment.

Step 3: Section off the middle part of the hair to create heightened and volumized bouffant. Spray the sectioned off pieces with TRESemmé Keratin Smooth Heat Protect Spray. Curl those sectioned off hair around a 1-inch curling iron.

Step 4: Twist the middle sectioned off hair pieces to create a seashell-like coil and then twist then pin with three bobby pins. Spray TRESemmé Volumizing Dry Shampoo liberally for even more volume.

Step 5: Slick back one piece from the right side of the head and one piece from the left side of the head and secure with a hair elastic. Spray with TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray Extend Hold Level 4 to keep the look in place.

Step 6: Split the remaining hair into two sections and create pigtail braids on each side. Take each pigtail and pin around the ponytail to finish off the look. Finish off with TRESemmé Compressed Micro-Mist Hair Spray Extend Hold Level 4.
