Step 1:

Step 1:

Create a deep side part, then split hair into two sections. Starting on the side with the deep part, apply Pop + Lock, concentrating specifically on where you’re braiding. This helps create smooth, bundled braids, while also providing UV protection – a must for summer!

 

Create a dutch braid, crossing strands under each other and adding more hair as you go. Once you reach the bottom of your hair, secure with an elastic. Gently pull on each braid loop to thicken the braid. Use Pop & Lock to smooth any flyaways.

Step 2:

Step 2:

On the other side, create a small twist ending over your ear and secure with a bobby pin. Pull the rest of the hair to the nape of your neck and secure with an elastic into a small loop. Wrap excess hair around the top of the loop. Tuck away and secure with a bobby pin. Then wrap the braid under and over the bun and secure with a bobby pin.

Step 3:

Finish with a misting of Extra Shine Spray. Its superlight, non-greasy formula harnesses the sun’s UV rays to add blinding, solar-powered gloss to any style.
