Fashion Week Step-by-Step: Lived-in Ponytail Braid

To complement Lela Rose’s feminine, fun and youthful collection for the Spring 2018 fashion presentation, lead hairstylist and Global Style Council Member of KMS, Lori Panarello (@rello4hair) created a high ponytail that was transformed into a simple, lived-in braid.

Get the look:

Step 1: First, to create fullness and grip to the hair, apply KMS ADDVOLUME Styling Foam.

Step 2: To give hair a cushion feeling, apply KMS ADDVOLUME Texture Crème to the hair.

Step 3: Next, apply KMS ADDVOLUME Liquid Dust, to create additional fullness.

Step 4: Following, pull the hair into a high ponytail with a natural combed back part. 

Step 5: Finally, pull the hair into three simple strands rolled into one braid and finish off the look with an elastic band.
