How to Style an Embellished Romantic Braid

Celebrity Stylist Owen Gould created a soft romantic braid for The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star Rachel Brosnahan at the 2020 Critics' Choice Awards, which he then embellished with silver accents. Here he breaks down how to get the look:

1. After cleansing and conditioning with the new Suave Professionals Collagen Shampoo and Conditioner, I prepped the damp hair with the Suave Professionals Firm Control Boosting Mousse from roots to ends.

2. Next, I used a small amount of the Suave Professionals Sleek Anti-Frizz Cream on the mid-shaft to the ends. I then blew her hair dry using a medium sized round brush and vertical one-inch sections, starting from the back and working my way up to the crown of the head.

3. Once the hair was dry, I gathered it into a ponytail at the nape of her neck, secured it with the silver elastic, and braided the ponytail.

4. After wrapping the pony with the rest of the elastic, I finished the style using the Suave Professionals Flexible Control Finishing Hairspray to lock in the look!
