How to Create a Last-All-Day Braid

Braid. The word is enough to conjure a mental explosion of everything from simple pigtail plaits to runway-chic twists and coils. Today we are going to share tips for keeping your braids bountiful and beautiful.

1. Creating thick and full looking braids on thin or fine hair is tricky, try using Bb. Hair Powder and/or Surf Spray. It will add bulk to the hair, plump it up and give fine hair more grip so it doesn't slip out.
2. If you need more volume or length on your braid try adding extensions.
3. Take your time. Every braid takes time, even messy-looking ones! Hair braided well will look better and last all day, a rushed braid looks rushed and will fall apart quickly (not in a good way!).
4. Finishing with a hairspray is a must! We recommend Bb. Classic Hairspray for its strong hold, plus it will help with flyaways and protect hair from the elements.

Cannes Film Festival 2013

Every year, the fashion stakes get higher at the annual Cannes Film Festival in the south of France. After all, it’s where some of the world’s biggest movie stars and tastemakers flock to attend movie screenings and soirees, all the while dressed in incredibly glamorous ensembles and amazing hair to boot!

 Alessandra Ambrosio kept things sleek and simple with a center part and straight locks to compliment her dress.

 We love Olivia Palermo's loosely pulled back updo.

You know we are suckers for over the shoulder, retro waves like Cara Delevingne's!

Whether you like it or not, ombre hair is still alive and well! Sara Forestier's is subtle and perfect for summer.

 We swoon over Naomi Watts short, retro waves!

The retro theme continues with Marion Cotillard's voluminous, french twist.

And nothing says summer like Isla Fisher's relaxed, beachy waves!

Swinging Sixties

Have you fallen into a styling rut? Do you find yourself slicking your hair back in the same old top knot every morning? Try this super easy modern take on vintage hair like Alexa Chung's. It reminds us of rock ‘n’ roll meets Brigitte Bardot. As always, we recommend doing this on dirty/second -day hair, it will hold better and last longer.
1. On dry hair spray Bb. Hair Powder all over hair to soak up oils and give hair more grit and grip. 
2. Backcomb hair at the crown and spray with Bb. Does it All Hairspray for a light, workable hold. 
3. Loosely pull the hair back into a ponytail leaving the face-framing fringe flowing in front, and secure with bobby pins.
5. Spritz Bb. Spray de Mode hairspray for lasting hold. Pin It

Modern Veronica Lake

Catch the Wave
She played an unhappy 1920's housewife in The Great Gatsby but on the red carpet Isla Fisher channeled the ’40s with her Veronica Lake-inspired waves. We can't help but always swoon over glamorous, over-the-shoulder waves! 
1. On damp hair spray Bb. Prep and apply a golf ball size amount of Bb. Thickening Full Form Mousse on your roots. 
2. Blow-dry using a large round brush. 
3. Once dry, create a low side part and section the hair into manageable pieces. Starting at the front and working backwards, wrap sections of hair around a medium-sized curling iron and secure with clips. 
4. Spray the pinned hair lightly with Bb. Spray de Mode Hairspray and allow to cool.
5. Release the curled sections and smooth through with your hands to loosen. Use a large, soft brush and gently brush through the curls to create smooth, soft waves. Finish with Bb. Color Minded UV Protective Polish for shine and to get rid of flyaways, and a spritz of Bb. Spray de Mode Hairspray for hold.   Pin It

CFDA Awards Hair

The red carpet at the Council of Fashion Designers of America Awards offered plenty in the way of show-stopping looks and hair (of course!). 

Lily Aldridge always has the best hair color! We love her subtle ombre, middle part and natural texture.

We were wowed by blonde bombshell, Karolina Kurkova. Again, we love the center part and soft waves.

Ashley Madekwe kept the natural texture trend going and proves dark hair doesn't have to be boring! 

Kerry Washington always looks stunning and at the CFDA Awards she didn't disappoint! We saw a lot of sleek, pulled back hair which means summer is here! Sleek, simple hair is also a great way to show off your outfit, face and features.

 If you want to try the sleek hair trend but don't want to commit to fully slicked back hair, try a deep side part a la Rooney Mara.

Pixie Texture

Feminine pixies have been all the rage in Hollywood and we are starting to see the trend trickle into the salo. We are loving the femininity and softness that we are seeing and have been creating on our clients. We love this textured look that was at Rachel Comey's NYC Fall Fashion Week show, it is exactly what we’re talking about! To create this piece-y texture:
1. On damp hair spray Bb. Prep all over and smooth Bb. Thickening Full Form Mousse through hair.
2. Blow dry using your fingers to create movement and enhance natural texture. 
3. Once hair is dry work Bb. Sumotech through hair, moving hair into place. Finish with Bb. Spray de Mode Hairspray for hold. Pin It
