Toni & Guy Braided Updo Tutorial

* Press Sample

Hello Loves!

  I was lucky enough to work with Toni & Guy and Birchbox to create a hair tutorial, based on their "Hair Meets Wardrobe" line. By dividing products into categories like Casual, Classic, Glam and Creative, it's much easier to find the perfect product!

Now on to the hairstyle I came up with!

  1. Divide the hair into three sections, clipping them up.
  2. Using the Sea Salt Texturising Spray, mist one of the side sections, to give some texture.
  3. Dutch-braid the section, don't worry about braiding too tight. Use an elastic at the end, with some space
  4. Since you've left some space at the end, you can pull apart/loosen the braid to keep from looking to fussy.
  5. Repeat steps 2-4 on the other side.
  6. Sprinkle some of the Sculpting Powder onto the middle section, to help with volume and texture. Then massage it into the roots
  7. Spray some of the Sea Salt Texturising Spray as well.
  8. Gently tease, to give some lift
  9. Pin into place and gather the hair into a ponytail
  10. Loosely braid, I opted for a fishtail, but a three-strand braid works as well
  11. Wrap the braid around the ponytail and pin into place
  12. Take the two remaining braids, and wrap them as well, pinning them. It should feel pretty secure.
  13. Spray either the Medium Hold or Firm Hold hairspray, depending on your hair texture. I also smoothed some of the Shine Gloss serum over the top and the braids.

It's hard to say whether this is Creative or Classic, you can tweak it based on how much you tease, how loose or tight the braids are.

Toni & Guy was generous enough to send the products above so I could test them out! So far, I've obsessed with the Sea Salt Texturising Spray, Smoothing Lotion and Spray Style Wax!
